Young Link Runs Through the Valley and Rolls the Hills in Unreal Engine 4
A few days ago we reported that Visual Effects Artist, Michael Eurek, has uploaded a new project on his vimeo page, continuing his previous work on the The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time theme. For The Legend of Zelda fans out there, another little demo is worth checking out. Once again, the work of CryZENx has brought us the Kite Demo of Unreal Engine 4, but this time we have a new visitor roaming the fields, Young Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Link looks quite impressive and any fan of the series would be hard pressed not to long for a new iteration of the revered franchise with something close to resembling this kind of visual fidelity.
A new “next-gen” Zelda game can’t come soon enough
Here’s hoping that Nintendo brings us news of its upcoming “NX” console soon enough and we get treated with a truly next-gen Legend of Zelda title, that could perchance look similar to the Unreal Engine 4 demo. The character model of Link could look quite better as well, as CryZENx is using assets and models from other games, such as Super Smash Bros, which most of the time sport simpler models than what could possibly be achieved with newer hardware.
