One fan of the Nintendo GameCube classic The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has recreated the [...]
The video itself, was created by one Vitor Maccari, who shared the resulting product on his own YouTube channel. Maccari said that he had been looking for a project to tackle that would help get him more familiar with using Epic's Unreal Engine. While this venture was done primarily to learn how the creation software worked, he also said that he wanted to have fun in the process. As such, he thought that remaking The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker would allow him to get more enjoyment out of the process.
Speaking more to how he was able to pull this off in the first place, Maccari said that he reused the animations he created for Wind Waker project that he worked on earlier in 2021. "I've reused the animation and the 3D assets from a short movie I made a few months ago. I've also modeled some new assets like grass, palm trees and rocks," he said of this creation process. "I've made the handheld movements myself with my DSLR camera. Then I tracked the shots using Nuke (Software) and imported them to Unreal."
