While special editions can often be pricey, they’re worth the money if they include cool exclusives you can’t find anywhere else. The highly anticipated GoldenEye 007 for Wii sounds like it won’t disappoint, as it will include a golden Wii Classic controller if you purchase the special edition bundle.
Goldeneye 007 is one of the most fondly remembered games of the Nintendo 64 era and can be credited to many as the first time they experienced a first person shooter. Many also will also closely associate that title with the infamous Golden Gun which could kill any opponent in a single shot. Now, being recreated for the Nintendo Wii, Goldeneye 007 looks to bring back that classic split screen madness and has made sure to get itself an exclusive controller only available for release with the game.
Titled the GoldenEye 007 Classic Edition, this version of the game will come packed with the the gold Classic Controller Pro. From our hands on time with the game at San Diego Comic Con, this control scheme is without a doubt the way the game was meant to be experienced (since we can’t figure out a way to hook up our classic N64 controllers into the Wii that doesn’t cause sparks to fly out of it).
“In addition to the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, GoldenEye will also support the Wii Zapper for ‘point and shoot’ gamers, giving players several ways to experience GoldenEye on Wii,” said David Pokress, Head of Marketing for Licensed Properties, Activision Publishing. “We also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pay homage to the golden gun with the gold Classic Controller Pro, which looks cool and also gives shooter fans a familiar control scheme to use as they blast their way through the game.”
Goldeneye 007 will be available exclusively for the Wii featuring the Daniel Craig version of James Bond. It will also contain a multiplayer featuring 40 total characters (8 of those being classic Bond characters), ten maps, three standard modes and 18 special modifiers for players to customize game settings. The GoldenEye 007 Classic Edition bundle will be available for $69.99 while the standard version of the game will retail for $49.99 and will be available this fall.
