Goldeneye 007: reloaded: Ban of the shooter was canceled
Goldeneye 007 (Nintendo 64) may be in front of a new edition after being deleted from the list of games forbidden in Germany. This happens automatically after 25 years, but according to sections, the deletion was not formal, but on the request of Stadlbauer Marketing Vertriebs GmbH.
It is important to know that Nintendos eShop has its headquarters in Germany. So that the game can appear on the platform, it would have to be deleted from the list to be sold in Europe. This also applies to the Nintendo Switch Online Service, which may be the goal for the iconic shooter.
Techland s Switch Porting by Dying Light was not published for the planned appointment on 19 October because of the eShop registration in Germany. A spokesman for Techland revealed Reddit:
If you re talking about the digital version, the digital version of the game is currently prohibited in Germany due to the nature of the content, where the European eShop is officially registered.
That makes it impossible to officially distribute the game in European countries and in Australia and New Zealand. We are currently working with our partner and local authorities to pick up the ban as soon as possible.
If Goldeneye 007 is actually released on modern platforms, this would be a big step to maintaining a game that has been struggling with license problems for years.
This is mainly due to the rights to the James Bond license as well as the image rights of Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean, Robbie Coltrane and others. These would have to be either renegotiated or removed from a possible new edition.
