007 Legends seems like it could just as easily be called "James Bond 101." The game is covering a wide swath of the Bond canon, for you kids who only know of the recent films in the decades-old franchise. And to that end, Activision has announced a few more pieces of the legacy to lend it authenticity.
MTV Multiplayer reports that the writer of the game is Bruce Feirstein, who penned Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies, along with a few Bond game adaptations. Actor Richard Kiel will be reprising his likeness and voice to burly villain Jaws, and Michael Lonsdale will again take on the mantle of Hugo Drax. If you don't know who either of those villains are, you can catch up by watching Moonraker. Just be prepared for a much less grounded Bond.
As previously announced, Daniel Craig will play the lead character through all six Bond stories. It launches on October 16.
