A full playthrough video of Rare’s cancelled Xbox Live Arcade remaster of N64 classic GoldenEye 007 has surfaced.
As spotted by IGN, the video surfaced on Youtube is published by a GoldenEye 007 content creator Graslu00 with the title “GoldenEye 007 XBLA (2007) – Longplay”. The video shows a full playthrough of the N64 classic running at 4k resolution and 60 fps on the Xenia emulator (used to achieve the higher resolution and fps), along with 30 minutes of footage of multiplayer at the end.
Microsoft-owned “Rare” developed an HD remaster of its N64 classic “GoldenEye 007” (which was developed and created by only 9 people, with 8 of them had never worked on a video game before), originally planned to released on XBLA in 2007, but due to the copyrights, the project got canceled.
On Twitter, Youtuber Graslu00 insisted that this footage is not related to any recent leak by 4chan, but builds of the game were obtained from PartnerNet, a version of Xbox Live available only to dev kit owners. Graslu00 also said that this version of the game will be released to the public at some point in 2021.
While the XBLA remaster not coming anytime soon, the Hitman developer IO Interactive is working on a new James Bond game, which reportedly won’t be based on any silver screen actors who have played the role before, but could be a trilogy much like Hitman.
