Kult shooter is finally no longer forbidden after 24 years in Germany
An absolute shooter classic was set to the index after the release in Germany and thus banished from the shops - 24 years later, the ban was finally lifted and fans can even make hopes for a re-release.

Goldeneye 007: Cult shooter finally flies from the index
Goldeneye 007 was developed in 1997 by Rare and published for the N64, but German gamers went empty because of the indexing of the game. This could now change: On October 29, 2021 the bond shooter was officially painted by the list of indexed media - thus completely new possibilities for the recycling of the classic opens.
According to a statute of limitation, the list quenching was not automatically made for a statute of limitations, but requested by a rightholder. This suggests the guess that certain plans are available for the game. One possible and logical explanation would be, for example, that Nintendo wants to release the shooter in the context of the N64 expansion package for the Nintendo Switch. (Source: Cut Reports)
