GoldenEye 007 is one of the most popular games of the 90s. Without going any further, for many it is the best title based on the license created by Ian Fleming. One of the most outstanding works of Rare for Nintendo 64 and that, until today, was banned in Germany as it was considered “harmful to young people”. Well, its ban has ended after 25 years. The interesting detail of the movement is that It has not expired due to the passage of time, but at the request of some entity (unspecified), according to the German media Schnittberichte.
For its part, the VGC portal points out, when echoing the news, that we have recently seen two similar cases: those of BloodRayne and BloodRayne 2, banned for a long time for the same reason and that, after ending their exile, they have received remasters on Nintendo Switch. The point makes sense due to the fact that Nintendo has its headquarters in the Teutonic country; if a title is banned there, it is not possible to launch it in any other European country. Nevertheless, This does not mean that GoldenEye 007 is on the way, nor that there is someone working on a hypothetical return.
Bond, James Bond
The secret of the success of the adventure of Agent 007 for Nintendo 64 lay in two key aspects. On the one hand, Rare was able to conceive an FPS ahead of its time, which astonished everyone in 1997 thanks to the quality of all its sections (multiplayer for up to 4 players included). For another, the high degree of fidelity he maintained with the film starring Pierce Brosnan delighted all James Bond fans.
