GoldenEye’s Trademark Has Been Updated, So Of Course Those Remaster Rumours Are Back

Welcome back to our once-monthly GoldenEye 007 update! If you think we’re joking… well, we mostly are, but from February’s rumour mill winding up, and Rick Astley declaring James Bond’s N64 outing is his favourite video game, to the Xbox digital re-release rumours in January, it seems everyone is desperate to get their hands on either that cancelled Xbox 360 GoldenEye remaster a more basic re-release of the world’s best-known spy’s best game.

Danjaq LLC, the company that owns many trademarks and licenses for the Bond franchise, was granted an extension to use the trademark just two days ago, on 15th March. The franchise’s 60th anniversary is this year, and with these updates and rumours swirling around for the past year, it’s surely a case of ‘if’ not ‘when’.

in fact, at this point it’s not unlikely that the rumoured remaster is being held back because of the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine, as GoldenEye has a Soviet-heavy plot (Nintendo recently delayed the release of Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp for this reason). VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb has corroborated this:

Whether it’s a remaster or a Nintendo Switch Online version, complete with online compatibility, we’re surely going to find out sometime this year if the gold standard of film-to-video game adaptations is making a return.

What do you think about this recent trademark update? Do you want to see GoldenEye 007 on the Switch? Let us know.
