Goldeneye remake coming to Wii and DS

We've not been expecting you, Mr. Bond.

Exciting news for veteran gamers this week: Call of Duty publishers Activision are rumoured to be developing a remake of the Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye for Wii and DS, if a reportedly leaked gamer survey from the company is to be believed.

Rumours vary, but a common claim online is that Bond will be played in this latest installment by Daniel Craig, rather than the original Goldeneye's Pierce Brosnan. Alongside the Activision document, Destructoid reports a handful of images for the game have also been leaked, including box art and - brace yourself - a golden machine pistol Wii accessory.

Goldeneye on the N64 was a massive hit when it was released in 1997, two years after the Brosnan film of the same name, and was praised for its mix of stealth, action and four-way splitscreen multiplayer battles.

However, some of the details of this remake seem a little fishy to us. For a start, the controllers on the N64 were a lot similar to those on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 than to the Wii's motion controllers, meaning this Wii-make would be a very different gaming experience. And with Modern Warfare 2 (also published by Activision) picking up awards left and right, limiting 007 to the less-powerful Wii and DS seems like a disservice to a game which, back in '97, was cutting edge gaming technology.

Whatever the truth of these matters, we'll be holding our breath until this year's E3 conference rolls around.
