A talented game developer who absolutely adored the classic Nintendo 64 adventure, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, has set about recreating scenes from the game in Unreal Engine 5. In his latest video, RwanLink has uploaded a beautiful 13 minute video of Lake Hylia, giving us a look at how he interprets the location using the latest video game development engine from Epic Games. The video is more of a visual experience than anything else and is a must watch if you are a big fan of Link’s classic N64 adventure.
“In this new episode of Zelda Oot Next Gen I will recreate the famous Lake Hylia. This lake is beautiful and full of mysteries so I wanted to recreate this feel by imagining how it could look like with the visual of a film. The goal of this series is to reimagine these different environments as if they exist in real life using the Unreal Engine 5 and also to become a better artist in general. As a director, I also plan to present each of them with a cinematic. Even though I’m not a game developer, I also take the time to learn how to code to have a playable character and show you those environments from a third person perspective.”
