After Rare Ware finished with their development of Golden Eye 64 for the Nintendo 64 they showed it off to the big wigs from Nintendo, including creator of Mario, Zelda, Pikmin, Donkey Kong, and every Nintendo character you love Shigeru Miyamoto.
As Nerdist.com reports, Miyamoto was not a fan of all the violence and blood in the game, and given Nintendo’s usually family friendly affair, I’m not all that surprised. However what did surprise me, as former Rare producer Martin Hollis recalls, Miyamoto wondered if Rare could change the ending of the game for James Bond to show up at the hospital to shake former friend turned villain Alec Trevelyan’s hand. I guess meaning he survived that long fall off of the satellite and it crashing on top of him, and you know having Bond be like, “Well old chap, you tried to kill me and turn everyone in the world penny-less, but let’s let bygones be bygones”
That’s one take on it, or maybe, like me, Mr. Miyamoto is a huge Sean Bean fan and just tired of seeing him die all the time and felt maybe he could save his video game form? Probably not, but that’s the story I choose to believe.
So what do you think about Miyamoto’s proposed ending? Are you sad like me that Sean Bean not only had to die in that movie (he was your best friends JAMES!) or are you happy that Rare ignored the greatest video game creator of all time? Let us know in the comments below.
