The day is May 22, 2000; this is the day that Rare releases Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64.At the time, this game revolutionized graphics using the Golden Eye 007 Engine. While rumors were lurking around 2009 E3 about a remake of the game for the Xbox Live Arcade it was confirmed by Major Nelson on his twitter stream.
The remake of the game is scheduled to be released in winter 2009, by the new developer 4J Studios. The downloadable arcade game is going to be able to run at 1080p at an impressive 60 frames per second! Also in game Dolby Digital will be replacing the classic Miles Sound System that was used in the original game. The single player campaign will be the same and be able to be played with a local friend but only on split screen. There are not many details about the multiplayer yet, besides that it does have a multiplayer with online play. Hopefully they will bringing back the old gametypes that we all loved such as; Capture The Case, Hold The Briefcase, Hacker Central, and Pop a Cap, that have never been seen in any other games before. There are rumors of LAN abilities, but nothing that is set in stone. Hopefully we will be seeing a lot more classic remakes in the near future. Keep your fingers crossed for a Golden Eye 007 remake.
