The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past doesn’t need the aid of Unreal Engine 4 to be the best Legend of Zelda game. It already is.
However, seeing a classic through new eyes is always a treat. This is the latest from CryZENx, the modder behind a whole host of Nintendo characters re-rendered in Unreal Engine 4, and it is without question his best work.
It’s not the entire game, but CryZENx’s setting recreates A Link to the Past‘s masterful intro. The rain, the music, the castle flashing in the lightning blasts. In a move of utter desperation, Zelda telepathically calls out to Link’s uncle to save her from the dungeon, and the rebellious Link takes off after him into the rain-soaked night with nothing but a candle to light his path.
His adventure is only starting. Man, what a great game!
