The original Perfect Dark is being upgraded and is due to be released on Xbox Live Arcade.
The upcoming port of the classic Rare first-person shooter was confirmed by a post on Major Nelson’s Twitter feed:
“In the booth. Just saw Perfect Dark on XBLA running 1080p. It is coming to XBLA this winter. Free theme coming!”
The Premium NXE theme based on the style of the original game is now available to Xbox Live Gold members, and will be free for a limited time.
Perfect Dark, hailed as the spiritual successor to Goldeneye 64, is the latest of Rare’s Nintendo 64 titles to be ported to XBLA, following Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie.
