Nintendo Jumps the Shark?

If you don't know by now, Nintendo made the surprise announcement of a new Goldeneye game rebooted (as they call it) for the Wii. Since it is 2010 and Pierce Brosnan is no longer James Bond, they have redone the game with Daniel Craig.

Now don't get me wrong. I love James Bond. I think Daniel Craig is an excellent Bond.

But Nintendo, how bad are things when you have to reboot not the franchise but one of the best first person party shooters of all-Nintendo time?

I look forward to seeing and playing the game but Nintendo you have big shoes to fill rebooting Goldeneye. If you can pull it off excellent. If it is a dud, has Nintendo jumped the shark?
