A must-have console shooter title
When it was announced that Nintendo Switch Online would emulate Nintendo 64 games, some titles were eagerly awaited by fans. At the same time, the console is renowned for having a number of cult games that everyone thinks of when their name is mentioned. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Super Smash Bros., Pokémon Stadium, Donkey Kong 64… There was plenty to do. But among all these Nintendo productions, there is a title developed by a third-party publisher that everyone wanted to play again: GoldenEye 007.
It must be said that the James Bond game from the film of the same name made the great hours of the Nintendo machine for many reasons. First of all, it was one of the few shooters available on console at the time, which made him an exception. Then, his cinematographic staging had stuck more than one at the time. But of course, if GoldenEye 007 has become so cult over time, it’s thanks to its multiplayer. By splitting the screen into several parts, it was possible to face these friends up to four in maps designed for, which engraved many memories in the minds of the players. Memories soon to be rekindled thanks to today’s announcement.
