Video Game News: Video Game History To Die For

In most of the globe, GoldenEye 007 for the N64 was released in 1997. However, it was banned and labeled as ‘Media Sickening To Young People’ in Germany.

According to VGC, Germany’s no-longer-banned GoldenEye 007 is now allowed to be sold, advertised, and marketed to children.

What’s fascinating about this recent re-legalization of GoldenEye in Germany is that it was scheduled to happen automatically in 2019, as Eurogamer Germany reports. Someone or something got involved early to have the game unblocked.

The most likely explanation for getting the game off the banned index in Germany is that it was banned because Nintendo and its partners wanted to sell it digitally on the Switch. But since Nintendo’s European headquarters are in Germany, the company’s digital store across Europe has to adhere to German regulations.

Dying Light for Switch did not come out of the blue. In fact, just a few weeks back, a port of Dying Light Switch ran into difficulties with the European eShop being based in Germany and the game being on the prohibited media list since its 2015 release.
