The classic Nintendo 64 shooter Goldeneye 007 has been through the rumour mill more than a few times over the years. The latest rumour, however, comes with a bit more weight. Not because it’s from an especially reliable source (I can’t personally vouch for this leaker) but they have backed up their claims with over two hours of footage of the previously cancelled GoldenEye 007 game that was in development for Xbox 360.
According to this YouTube user, Graslu00, GoldenEye 007 will be getting released sometime this year. However, the details are sketchy, and it’s not clear if this will be a full official release on home consoles and PC, or if it will be dumped onto the internet by whoever has the code for the game. To be clear: the footage down below is of the game as it was in development back in 2007 for the Xbox Live Arcade.
In the years since GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64, there have been some attempts to legitimately bring the classic game back to the forefront of gaming. The end result? The well-received 2010 remake that replaced Pierce Brosnan with the outgoing Bond actor Daniel Craig.
