An extremely creative The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time A fan recreated Lake Hylia in Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5 and it’s breathtakingly beautiful. Unreal Engine 5 is a free 3D authoring tool that lets anyone explore a video game design engine. Popular games such as fortnite and armament of war were all created on different versions of Unreal Engine.
Many fans have created awesome remakes of other games on the Unreal Engine. The ability to take an older game and give it a new, next-gen look is something a lot of people enjoy doing. An impressive Unreal Engine remake is the Solid metal gear fan-made trailer that was recently uploaded. Many aspiring game developers have gone through the program in order to learn best practices for making a game. The Unreal Engine not only allows players to jump in and start creating; it also offers tutorials and courses that anyone can take to learn more about using the program.
YouTuber and The Legend of Zelda RwanLink fan (Via WCCFTech) shared their impressive remake of the Ocarina of time scene at Lake Hylia. In the intro to this video, RwanLink explains how he used references from real lakes to make the landscape look as accurate and beautiful as he does. His goal was to do this The Legend of Zelda next-gen look scene. He also mentions that a new soundtrack was created expressly for this scene, as it was missing from the original game. RwanLink does not mention how long it took to create it, but it does mention in the comments section that it has put countless hours into this project.

The video progresses and shows Link relaxing on the ground looking up at the sky. The character model is impressive; her clothes and hair look almost real, and her eye movements are remarkably immersive. The landscape around it is also impressive, with beautiful flowers and grass. Navi’s glow radiates around her and when the two are near water, the reflections and ripples look realistic. When fans recreate awesome Ocarina of time scenes, it’s just a testament to how this game is truly loved.
This was not the first video made by RwanLink based on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and he mentioned that it wouldn’t be the last. With the accessibility of Unreal Engine 5, it’s likely there will be a lot more fan-made videos to come. The new software has proven to be a boon for indie creators, and hopefully the already-seen awesome creations from the project are just the start.
Next: Zelda: Ocarina of Time PC Port could be available in April
