There’s no doubt that Eurocom‘s GoldenEye 007 for Wii is a marquee title for publisher Activision. The game re-imagines a classic Nintendo 64 title known as one of the greatest first-person shooters of all time.
And Activision seems to be aware of the project’s magnitude, after talking with Graham Hagmaier, an Activision producer, about the game at a San Francisco press event last week. Hagmaier stated that GoldenEye 007 has the largest Wii development team for an Activision-published game.
“This is the biggest team ever for Activision on a Wii project — more than 100 guys at Eurocom are working on [GoldenEye 007],” Hagmaier said. “This is also the biggest partnership Activision has ever had with Nintendo on a game, too.”
Nintendo unveiled GoldenEye 007 at its E3 2010 press conference in Los Angeles, as well as showcased the game at the company’s booth. But Hagmaier explained that Nintendo’s assistance did not come only from the marketing side.
“[Nintendo] mainly just helped with the gameplay side — constant feedback and constant visits to the developer [Eurocom],” said Hagmaier.
When pressed further about Nintendo’s developmental help, Hagmaier said that he could not reveal any further details. Thus, in regard to being asked about the possibility of Shigeru Miyamoto paying a visit to Eurocom, Hagamaier only laughed and said, “No comment.”
GoldenEye 007 hits store shelves Nov. 2 as a standard package at a MSRP of $49.99 or as a Gold Controller Bundle at a MSRP of $69.99.
