Should Goldeneye 007 be ported for the Nintendo Switch?

As many people know Goldeneye 007 was one of the most popular games for the N64 back in the late 90’s. In fact, Goldeneye 007 became the third best selling video game on the N64 console reaching over 8 million copies worldwide; while becoming the best selling third party game on the N64. The 007 game was released less than two years following the success of the Goldeneye movie from late ‘95 which generated over $356 million in box office revenue. At one point a remastered version of Goldeneye 007 was expected to appear Xbox 360 years ago after a canceled leaked port of the game surfaced online early in 2021. But it seems like it has been seemingly confirmed that a remastered port of Goldeneye 007 will be appearing on the Xbox One in the future. It has recently been revealed that at least 50 different achievements have appeared for Xbox Live for Microsoft’s last generation console. Considering the fact that 2022 marks the 25 year anniversary of Goldeneye 007 many people are wondering whether or not Rare’s iconic first person shooter game should be ported to the Nintendo Switch console in the future. Its common knowledge that licensing issues had prevented a re-release of Goldeneye 007 back in ‘08; which makes the likelihood of a Switch port in the future seem questionable. While many old-school gamers from the late 90’s might be in favor of seeing a Switch re-release of Goldeneye 007 next year nothing is currently set in stone right now. But there is no question that Goldeneye 007 would stand out more as a first person shooter on the Nintendo Switch since there is more competition within genre on consoles like the Xbox One.
