Recently, a user on YouTube named CryZENx has been posting videos of the Legend of Zelda on his channel. These videos are, no pun intended, unreal! The graphics are amazing and have to be seen to be believed. Just take a look at a few of his videos.

CryZENx is also making mods and demos for other franchises, including Mario, Pokemon and Sonic the Hedgehog. What's interesting about CryZENx's work is that it bares a similarity to Zelda Wii U on the Wii U hardware. Here's a few shots that look similar, for example.

Having taken a look at both of these, I'd go so far as to say the Wii U hardware is either on par or better than the Unreal Engine 4. I'm a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda series, having played all of them up to the Wii. So, the fact that CryZENx is working on demos of an updated Ocarina of Time and that the Wii U Zelda game looks so amazing definitely made my inner nerd very delighted.

Be on the lookout for an article I'm working on where I go over the Unreal Engine 4 features and uses. Let me know what you all thought in the comments below and answer the poll!


Would you rather play Ocarina of Time on the Unreal Engine 4 or play Zelda Wii U on the Wii U hardware?
