Perhaps one of the most influential shooters of all time was James Bond: Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64. Filled with exciting action, well designed gameplay, and addictive multiplayer Goldeneye was one of the best selling games for the 64. Now Activision, who has held the license for games based off the James Bond franchise, has just announced that they are re imagining Goldeneye for the Wii.

However, this reboot is more then a simple remake. It will be a complete rehaul of the game for the new era and console. Daniel Craig and Judi Dench will be adding their likenesses and voice talent to the game, which bases itself off the modern Bond films. The game will also be designed by Eurocom, the company most known for its work on Deadspace: Extraction. Like the Dead Space prequel Goldeneye will use in depth and scripted story telling to add to the narrative.

The gameplay is fluid and versatile, having characters climb, use stealth in addition to blowing away with high powered rifles. The game will also use contemporary FPS systems including ammo systems and regenerating health. Goldeneye also will utilize a customizeable Wii Remote, similar to The Conduit. However, gameplay using the Classic Controller is also offered.

Unique to Wii shooters, Goldeneye will feature online multiplayer. This also will include a player leveling system similar to the Call of Duty franchise.

The game is due for release this November.
