Goldeneye 007 still features my favourite ever video game design fail

If you're of a certain vintage, then the most exciting nugget amongst the many pieces of video game news announced last night will have been the re-release of N64 classic Goldeneye 007. Long tied up in legal wranglings, the retro favourite seemed doomed never to return – but it's finally coming back. And so is the mouthiest optical illusion ever.

Both Xbox and Nintendo Switch users will be able to enjoy infuriating their friends by selecting Oddjob and Slappers Only in what is arguably the greatest multiplayer mode of all time. And with the game itself comes the return of one of the greatest design fails around. (Ready to start playing? Check out the best Nintendo Switch deals available now.)
