Following plenty of rumors, Rare today confirmed the genre-defining shooter GoldenEye 007 is coming back in all its original glory. Revealed during the Nintendo Direct showcase today, the classic has been recreated for Xbox and Nintendo Switch platforms, and while the looks and gameplay have been preserved, it touts improvements for modern platforms.

The campaign involving James Bond's mission to stop the GoldenEye satellite returns in full in this release alongside the popular four-player split-screen multiplayer. Interestingly, the Switch trailer says "Online Play" will arrive as a feature, but this tidbit is missing from the Xbox trailer and accompanying blog post.
