Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Kakariko Village meets Unreal 4 Engine

This is the Zelda I've been wanting to play for the last 15 years.

It feels a bit soulless but it looks good, much better than the usual "Zelda-level with modern graphics, ultra-generic art style" that people throw around.

Totally agree.

Totally agree.

I don't think this guy is actually a Nintendo dev though, either.  Have to think their devs would be able to add that warmth you're all familiar with.  Didn't post the video to insinuate this would be best for the franchise, just nice to see someone put an amazing amount of effort into it.

EDIT: Which is why I really appreciate modders, fan fic etc...  seeing what the community can do is just stunning, and...can anyone imagine how much time this guy put into it?

I think it depends on the developer, frankly.  I think people are making a bit more of this than they should be.  This isn't a Nintendo dev (as far as I can tell, this is just a random modder), and they've lived and breathed the atmosphere of Zelda, Metroid, Mario etc... for decades.   They know the little tweaks and additional techniques to add what you're looking for.



"It looks soulless"
"It looks lifeless"

Have you maybe considered that has to do with the fact that there are literally zero people in the town? No cuckoos? That buildings can't be entered? The town is a faithful recreation of Kakariko Village, both in style and content. All it's missing is the people throughout the town. It isn't missing Nintendo charm. It's just missing the life, you know, the people and animals.



 

Thats how zelda would look on the PS4... or if nintendo made a console that powerfull...



If Ocarina of Time was a Sony or Microsoft exclusive, it would have been remastered years ago.
