For many millennial gamers, GoldenEye was their first ever shooter and was a mainstay of countless hours of 'couch coop' with friends.

Now younger generations of gamers will have the chance to experience its timeless gameplay⁠—and aging graphics⁠—along with the split-screen multiplayer.

Gamers young and old have shared their excitement at the release, which will also include online play.

One gamer, Gavin Stevens said: "It's always strange seeing the generational gap. To me, GoldenEye 64 multi was the s**t. It was just what we cool kids did, when we wasn't playing Quake, Unreal, C&C and stuff. It was the best FPS MP you could get on a console, and at the time the ease of it was just unmatched."
