Banjo Kazooie is one of those franchises that everyone loved on the Nintendo 64 back in the day. 3D artist Neil Goodman loves the game so much that he’s decided to recreate Banjo’s house using the state of the art Unreal Engine 4. Goodman says that he created the project to give more detail to Banjo’s house to give the impression that it was lived in. There doesn’t seem to be a video for the Banjo Kazooie remake so you’ll have to make do with the screenshots, here.

Tekken 7 Has Been Leaked And Uses Unreal Engine 4, No Platforms Mentioned

Online gaming publication IGN has let the cat out of the bag and revealed that Tekken 7 is coming before the developer announced it. Tekken 7 runs on Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 and is in development for current generation consoles. Whether this means the Wii U remains to be seen, but we should hear some more about the game, tonight.

“With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve the visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it,” Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada is quoted as saying in the video. “Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”

Here’s Zelda’s Temple Of Time Recreated Using The Stunning Unreal Engine 4

Michael Eurek has managed to recreate the legendary Temple of Time using the spectacular Unreal Engine 4. The project was suggested by a friend who asked if he could recreate a classic game using Unreal’s latest graphics engine. Eurek set about creating the Temple of Time. The footage is captured from Unreal Engine 4 and Eurek says other software used was, Maya, Z-brush, and Photoshop.

“Several months ago, it was suggested to me by a friend that a fun/challenging exercise would be to recreate an environment from an old game I like using modern techniques. I thought this was a great idea, so I have put together a recreation and personal adaptation of The Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda.”

Unreal Engine 4 Now Supports PlayStation 4 And Xbox One, No Wii U

Epic Games have announced that the gorgeous Unreal Engine 4 now adds support for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Epic Games says that the new update also adds support for Linux and Valve’s SteamOS operating system. Wii U isn’t included in the latest bout of support, so games based on the engine will likely be skipping the system.

Mark Rein Says He’s Sorry If He Offended People With His Wii U Comments

wii_u_console_whiteWhen asked last week whether Unreal Engine 4 will work on Wii U, Epic Games co-founder Mark Rein laughed as he replied ‘no.’ Rein says that the reason he laughed was because the question ignored other current-gen consoles, like the aged Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. On Twitter today, Rein said he’s sorry if he offended people with his comments regarding Nintendo’s latest console. Are you offended by Rein’s comments? If so, do you forgive him?
