Nintendo has unbanned GoldenEye 007 in Germany


It seems as though Nintendo is looking to revive the classic Nintendo 64 game GoldenEye 007 as the Kyoto-based company has been working with German authorities to unban the first person shooter in Germany. The game was originally put on the list of “Media Harmful to Young Persons” in Germany and it would naturally go up for review after 25 years has past, but Nintendo seems to have pushed the review process forward, which has led some to believe that Nintendo is looking to put GoldenEye 007 on the newly launched Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service. We shall have to wait and see what happens, but as always if we hear something, we will let you know.

    1. The way Switch retro online works is every game in it has online. Even the single player only games support online with it. Just keep in mind it’ll still be split screen.

  1. Highly doubtful considering Nintendo has to go through multiple license holders and who knows how much they want and if they somehow succeed then it would account for the service being $50/year.

  2. I don’t wish yo jump to conclusions, but if Nintendo is taking steps to get this game unbanned, there are only so many reasons why they would so. And currently, I can think of but one main purpose for this…

    Problem is, I am still unwilling to shell out $30 more a year for the expansion when I only want one thing out of it.

  3. To re-release it on virtual console with less than stellar performance while the cancelled XBLA version which looks and runs much better is available for everyone to download for free. Classic shitendo.
