In these first bars of the year 2023, the year of departure of the highly anticipated Tears of the Kingdom, fans of the Hylian saga are creative through the roof. In just three weeks, we’ve already seen the Doom-style recreation of Zelda for the NES in VR, Zelda II with Esports Extras art from Game Boy Advance, animations based on the artworks of A Link to the Past, and almost as if it were a planned series, now it’s the turn of the next in the list of desktop titles of the green-robed hero: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A title that came to light more than 25 years ago on Nintendo 64, but which was so special that it is still very present in the imagination of millions of fans.
The Kokiri Forest from Zelda: Ocarina of Time, in a more “island” style
The artist in charge of the recreation on this occasion is BigSharkZ, which on its YouTube channel has shown a video of just over three minutes in length in which the first bars of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time receive a facelift in a way never seen before. The reimagining of the fans usually tends to give us images that look more in line with the technical possibilities of now, such as the recreation in Unreal Engine 5 of Lake Hylia. But this time, the artist has tried something different: adapt the Kokiri Forest of Nintendo 64 to the art style from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker for Nintendo GameCube.
The truth is that we live in a spectacular moment to be a fan of Zelda. Between hype With the new title and the impressive displays of fan talent, not many days go by without us having a excuse to talk about the sagaany of its titles or any related anecdote.
