'GoldenEye: Rogue Agent' (NDS) Stirs Things Up In Stores

As an aspiring 00 agent dismissed from MI6 for reckless brutality, the player is hired as an enforcer by Auric Goldfinger, the wealthy super-villain with a lust for all things gold. Goldfinger is locked in a ruthless war against his archenemy, the brilliant scientist Dr. No. The prize is control of the world's greatest criminal organization. A brutal encounter with Dr. No costs the player an eye, but Goldfinger's technicians replace it with a gold-hued, synthetic eye, earning the player the name 'GoldenEye'. Players have the ability to customize and upgrade their villain persona and wreak havoc as they make their unrelenting rise through the ranks.

"GoldenEye: Rogue Agent for the Nintendo DS takes full advantage of the platform's unique technology to deliver a compelling gaming experience on the go," said Jon Dean, Executive Producer at EA Tiburon. "Delivering a solid first-person shooter for the handheld system has been a joy for the Tiburon team. We are big fans of the Bond franchise and were thrilled to develop the first in the series for the Nintendo DS platform."

As an aspiring 00 agent dismissed from MI6 for reckless brutality, you are recruited by Auric Goldfinger in a ruthless war against Dr. No for control of the Bond underworld. Wreak havoc as you make your unrelenting rise through the ranks of villainy. On globe-spanning missions of vengeance and demolition, encounter such legendary Bond characters as Oddjob, Dr. No, Goldfinger, Scaramanga, and Xenia Onatopp.

Outwit villainous rivals and battle it out in the intense wireless multiplayer mayhem with up to seven other players using only one cartridge, a unique feature for the Nintendo DS. Conquer the robust single-player campaign which is divided into six action-packed missions. Exploit multiple weapon combinations through the dual-wield gunplay system, or go head-to-head, melee-style, by taking enemies hostage or knocking them out with one punch.

In the all-new for DS 'Virtual Training' mode, sharpen your lethal edge and gain experience by defeating infamous Bond villains in order to earn valuable upgrades for your GoldenEye weaponry. Left and right-handed gameplay controls, plus stylus and thumb-pad play, take full advantage of the platform's distinctive touch-screen capabilities.

Officially licensed by MGM Interactive, GoldenEye: Rogue Agent for the Nintendo DS was developed at EA's Tiburon studio. The game is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB and has a US MSRP of $29.95.
