Link to the Past in Unreal 4 is mesmerizing

Hey another Unreal 4 video!

CryZENx is at it again with another Unreal video — this time, he’s targeting The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Naturally it highlights one of the game’s most dramatic moments, the stressful beginning of the game, where Link is thrust into action almost immediately and infiltrates Hyrule Castle.

A lot of these Unreal videos are fairly lifeless, merely injecting nostalgia into a lifeless arena, but for this one, I think it’s the music and the mood that does it. We often see “touch-ups” with certain games that were already in 3D, but more full-blown remakes of 2D games would be exciting.
