It’s been almost eighteen years since the incredible The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was first released on the Nintendo 64, yet it still holds its spot as one of the greatest adventures of all time. Unfortunately, time hasn’t exactly been kind to it in terms of appearance. To put it bluntly, it looks like an 18-year-old game. However, there are ways to fix this problem, and that’s where folks like CryZENx come in. This YouTuber has ported the original Temple of Time map from Ocarina of Time into Unreal Engine 4, with fantastically beautiful results.
The video above features a Young Link exploring the temple, presumably just after completing Jabu-Jabu’s Belly as all three Spiritual Stones are present. From the dancing orange particles around Link’s charged up spin attack to the sprawling shadows created by the fluorescent blue light emitted by Navi herself, everything looks incredible.
CryZENx has even been kind enough to provide a download of his work for anyone who wants to run around in it themselves. You might also want to check out his YouTube page, where you can find more classic characters and maps remade using Unreal Engine 4.
Would you replay The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time if it was completely remade in Unreal Engine 4? What other games would you like to see given this treatment?
