Fans of the nostalgic GoldenEye 007 game for the Nintendo 64 were treated earlier this week with revamped gameplay footage.

The two-hour footage of the remastered version for Xbox Live Arcade shows how, with the help of visual enhancements, the game is just as fun to play today as it was 24 years ago. More info has also surfaced regarding why the 2008 remake was shelved. As GoldenEye composer Grant Kirkhope puts it, there were just too many “stakeholders,” and that “Microsoft, Nintendo and EON [owners of the Bond license] could never agree on terms.” Meaning, with all the studios, actors, licenses, and intellectual property involved in the one game, it just didn’t make sense financially.

The silver lining is that the Internet has once again picked up on the trending discussion and someone has released a near-final version of the ROM. This ROM features the full single-player mode and multiplayer modes. Those interested can find the ROM circulating the web where it can be played via PC emulators like Xenia Xbox 360.
