The title is an HD remake of last year's Wii-exclusive GoldenEye, err, redux. Yeah, we're trying hard to get our heads around that too.
See, last year's GoldenEye 007 (for Wii) was a complete reimagining of Rare's original movie block-buster. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is an HD remake of the Nintendo Wii title. However, developers Eurocom are doing more than slapping a couple of filters over the Wii version and calling it day. The studio has instead built a new engine from the ground-up, replacing textures, lighting and AI to create an experience more appropriate for the PlayStation 3.
The PS3 version of the game will feature a number of fancy new features too. Activision's confirmed PlayStation Move and Sharpshooter support, as well as a slew of new MI6 missions distinct from the single-player game.
We are beyond ecstatic to debut GoldenEye 007: Reloaded to the millions of fans who have been clamoring for it to arrive on Sony and Microsoft home consoles, said Activision's David Oxford.
Sony's Rob Dwyer had a few words to say about the announcement too: By bringing together GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, and PlayStation Moves Sharp Shooter, we are continuing to expand the new world of motion-based entertainment appealing for hardcore fans and only possible on PlayStation.
This announcement actually has us grinning like school-boys behind the bike-shed. Seriously. GoldenEye 007 is one of our favourite games of all time — a modernised PlayStation 3 version is something we never actually expected to happen.
Check out the trailer after the jump and weep at the brilliance.
