GoldenEye 007 achievement leaks point to Xbox showcase reveal on Sunday
Achievements for a GoldenEye 007 re-release are on the official Xbox website, foreshadowing a potential reveal at this week’s showcase.
Despite being one of the most important video games of the 90s, Nintendo 64 game GoldenEye 007 has never been re-released, although that’s not because of a lack of trying. However, what was once a pipe dream might now be one of the worst kept secrets in gaming.
At the beginning of the year, Xbox achievements for GoldenEye 007 were spotted and shared online, despite the original game never releasing for Xbox platforms.
Now those same achievements have popped up again but, this time, on the official Xbox website.
It’s not known whether the game is a full remake or a simple HD remaster. Microsoft did create a remaster in 2008 but despite being complete it was never released and it’s unclear whether that’s what this is or not.
However, the achievement list does confirm every level from the original Nintendo 64 game is present and accounted for.
This includes the Aztec and Egyptian bonus levels that could only be unlocked by beating the game on certain difficulties.
You can see the list for yourself on the Xbox website, but you will need an Xbox profile to do so. Although Twitter user Wario64 has shared screengrabs of most of them.
In recent years, Microsoft and Nintendo have developed an increasingly strong working relationship, which has led to some Xbox exclusives releasing for the Nintendo Switch and things like Minecraft in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Banjo and Kazooie also appeared in Smash Bros., with the original N64 game now available as part of the Nintendo Switch Online service. In that context, the idea of GoldenEye 007 coming to Switch isn’t too much of a stretch.
