Rare’s cancelled GoldenEye 007 remaster resurfaces

Back in the days of the Xbox Live Arcade, a team at Rare was working on a remaster for GoldenEye 007. The game was ultimately cancelled, but remnants of it still exist. Now, one person has managed to reveal the remaster in its entirety. 

Over on YouTube, user ‘Graslu00’ uploaded a 2-hour long video, showing off the GoldenEye 007 remaster being played from beginning to end in 4K resolution and at 60 frames per second:

The game is running in an emulator to achieve the final resolution, so the game would not have looked this sharp on an Xbox 360. Rare developed the remaster back in 2007 but unfortunately, even with Microsoft’s assistance, copyright issues got in the way. Due to this, the game never got an official release.

Over the years. small chunks of footage have been released but this is the first time we’ve seen the full game from start to finish. It is an interesting look at another unreleased piece of gaming history.

KitGuru Says: If this HD remaster had released on Xbox 360 back in the day, would you have played it?
