    What appears to have been a remastered version of Rare's acclaimed shooter GoldenEye 007 was at one time in the works for Xbox 360. It never came out, but now some footage of the scuttled project has emerged online.

    The video, and this accompanying article, comes by way of the website Rare Thief. As you can see, it starts off with the game's iconic Dam mission, while Surface, Facility, Cradle, and Aztec are also on display. The graphics are noticeably better, while the music and sound effects are every bit as good as you remember. There are also some sequences that instantly jump between the original's graphics and this version, which would have been a feature in the game. You'll also notice the game runs at 60 FPS.


    There is some multiplayer footage at the end, but only one person is playing.

    According to Unseen64, GoldenEye for Xbox Live Arcade was in development at Rare in 2007 and 2008. Microsoft, Activision (the James Bond rights-holders), and Nintendo apparently agreed to a publishing deal. However, Nintendo Japan is purported to have shut the project down for unknown reasons just months before its planned release.

    Similar to the original N64 GoldenEye, developers at Rare had their faces scanned into the Xbox 360 version for all manner of side-characters like enemies and civilians.

    Though this project was not meant to be, Activision released GoldenEye: Reloaded in 2010 for the Wii. This wasn't exactly what fans might have wanted, however, as this reimagining of the classic featured Daniel Craig in the role played by Pierce Brosnan originally. The game was later released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    Rare didn't get to release this game, but it did put out Perfect Dark on XBLA, a remastered version of its classic N64 game. The original was included with the 30-game Rare Replay pack, but GoldenEye wasn't.

    Activision acquired the James Bond video game license in 2006. At the time, it was announced that the deal ran through 2014. A James Bond game from the makers of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood was released in 2015, though no new console or PC games have been announced.
