During the September 2022 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo shared that GoldenEye 007 and some other Nintendo 64 titles are headed to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. There's no release date right now, but GoldenEye 007 is coming to Nintendo Switch "sometime soon," while an Xbox version is also being developed. You can watch the trailer below to see the announcement.

Nintendo collaborated on this project with Rare, the original developers of the game that were acquired by Microsoft years back and are now a part of Xbox Game Studios. The Nintendo Switch Online version of GoldenEye 007 will feature online support.

GoldenEye 007 was critically acclaimed when it launched, and led to the creation of a spiritual successor in the form of a new IP called Perfect Dark, which was also developed by Rare for the Nintendo 64 before later being ported to Xbox after the studio was acquired.

Here's the other games coming to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack:

  • Pilotwings 64 - 2022
  • Mario Party - 2022
  • Mario Party 2 - 2022
  • Mario Party 3 - 2023
  • Pokémon Stadium - 2023
  • Pokémon Stadium 2 - 2023
  • 1080° Snowboarding - 2023
  • Excitebike 64 - 2023

There's no exact release date for any of these games, but Nintendo has detailed which games are slated to arrive in 2022 and which will be launching at some point in 2023.
