Over the years, the people have cried out for Nintendo to Hire This Man, and yet they never seem to, which means that This Man, Unhired, will continue to make hyper-realistic Unreal Engine mockups for our viewing pleasure. This Man (which does not refer to one specific person but rather the general concept of this kinda person, kinda like “make up a guy”) this time is YouTuber RwanLink, who has released a video showing an Unreal Engine 5 version of Lake Hylia from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, dubbed as Ocarina of Time Next Gen:



The 12 minute-long video shows off an impeccable amount of detail, from the cutscene with the fire arrows, to an appearance from Sheik, to so much more. There are even cameos from Minish! The amount of effort here is truly impressive, especially when you consider this is the second video in the series, after a mockup of Kakariko Village from several months back:



We’ll have to see what RwanLink comes up with next, but it will undoubtedly be just as richly detailed and lit. So let me be the first to say it: Nintendo, Hire This Man!
