We all love an excellent mashup video. Now YouTuber RwanLink has taken The Legend of Zeldaand created an animated teaser showing what it would be like if Link came to life Studio Ghibli-style. This short teaser was created using Unreal Engine 5, Epic Games’ latest engine. RwanLink recreated Ocarina of time, which many believe to be the most popular installment in the franchise. Actually, Ocarina of time turns 25 this year, so what better way to celebrate the game? You can watch the full 4K teaser Zelda Ocarina of Time X Ghibli: Castle Town below:
Of course, this video is just a teaser. RwanLink has announced that they will be releasing another, longer trailer on November 21st Zelda Ocarina of Time X Ghibli: Castle Town The video will be released on December 25th. This will be a real Christmas present for you Zelda and Studio Ghibli fans. The full video will feature over 30 characters in total. This is not the first fan video that RwanLink has created based on it The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in Unreal Engine 5. So far, the artist has recreated Goron City, Kokiri Forest and Zora’s Domain.
All of RwanLink’s other videos look incredible and will blow you away with their details. However, things get mixed up The Legend of Zelda with the Studio Ghibli aesthetic really took everything to the next level. This is not the only remake of Ocarina of time Things are going well these days, especially with the 25th anniversary this year. But it definitely seems to be the best as it really captures the look and feel of a Hayao Miyazaki production. Hopefully this is a harbinger of a real collaboration between Nintendo and Studio Ghibli at some point. Yes, that’s unlikely, but this trailer proves that it would definitely be cool.
