Posted 1 year ago

CryZENx is at it again, this time bringing Star Fox and Donkey Kong into the Unreal Engine 4 Kite demo.  You can watch the two Nintendo iconic characters in the open world environment of “A Boy and his Kite” below:

CryZENx’ specs can be viewed below:

  • CPU:I7-4790K @ 4.8Ghz 1.32Vc + RAIJINTEK Triton watercooler
  • GPU: GTX 980 Ti EVGA Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ OCed = 1366mhz core / 4100mhz Memory
  • MB:Asrock Z97 Extreme 4
  • Ram:32GB (4x 8192MB) HyperX Savage RED DDR3-2400 DIMM CL11 Quad Kit

CryZENx has recently released a video showcasing the Unreal Engine 4  Elemental Demo with DX12 support. You can view the video here and download the demo here.

CryZENx has previously made available an Unreal Engine 4 video, featuring Nintendo’s adorable Kirby, which can be viewed here. While not as appealing as with the previous characters that CryZENx has featured, like Mario, Sonic, Link from The Legend of Zelda, and of course Pokemon, it does seem like a positive indication as to what a “next-gen” Nintendo Kirby title could look like.

Other notable Unreal Engine 4 projects include the gorgeous Absention, a new survival horror title inspired by true survival horror greats such as Resident Evil, Eternal Darkness and Silent Hill so fans can expect a mixture of mental challenge, intense gameplay, and immersive environments.


Unreal Engine forum member ‘koola‘ has recently released two screenshots from his latest project, that looked just absolutely mind-blowing, and now he has released two more images from the map and a video showcasing fully procedural ground textures. Koola mentions that big rocks come from the Epic Kite Demo.
