GoldenEye 007 has made a long-awaited comeback to modern systems, as it now includes the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack and Xbox Game Pass. This return was revealed with some lovely new trailers, which included a widescreen option for the Nintendo Switch version of the game. Here's how to turn it on.
GoldenEye 007 online multiplayer will be exclusive to the Switch version only.

GoldenEye has a general Settings menu other than single-player or multiplayer modes. To do this, start a mission and press the plus button on the Joy-Con, causing James Bond to look at his watch. Here, the player will find a page with Music and FX sliders on the top as well as widescreen and aspect ratio options.

Except for the button layout, the entire process for GoldenEye 007 on Rare Replay is the same on Xbox versions. Simply launch a single-player level, press the Menu button, cycle through the tabs using the D-Pad, and the options to change the screen size and ratio are found on the same audio/visual page.
GoldenEye 007's original Nintendo 64 version was widescreen?
GoldenEye 007's original Nintendo 64 version included these aspect ratios and widescreen options, but most people were unable to use them at the time due to the hardware that was available in most homes. This is why it's now mentioned in the game's commercials, as it's something that many who remember it back then are unlikely to realize.
