At this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, Nintendo put to bed speculation on whether it would be reviving GoldenEye 007, announcing that a reimaginging of Rare's Nintendo 64 classic would arrive for the Wii this November. However, Activision won't be limiting the game to just Nintendo's console.
As part of a grim earnings report this morning, Nintendo revealed that GoldenEye 007 is also in development for its 132 million-unit-selling handheld, the DS. Activision subsequently confirmed the listing for GameSpot, noting that n-Space (Call of Duty: Black Ops) is prepping the title for launch alongside the Eurocom-developed Wii version in November.
Details on what can be expected from the handheld version remain under wraps. The Wii version will be a fairly direct translation of the highly acclaimed 1997 shooter, though it will also feature updated visuals, four-player split-screen multiplayer, and new game modes. GoldenEye 007 for the Wii will also include online multiplayer, a functionality its N64 cousin could not offer.
