The classic Nintendo 64 game has never looked so good, and probably never will.

It’s hard to believe that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is fast approaching 20 years old—it doesn’t seem so long ago that I was badgering my mother every day for the best part of a month to help me procure a copy due to stock shortages during its launch.

Even so, a true remake—one that uses every shred of a console’s power and boasts visuals worthy of 2016—would definitely not go amiss. Sure, Ocarina was remastered for the Nintendo 3DS handheld not five years ago and it looked very nice and all, but the fact remains that many of us are still wishing Nintendo would produce a true, in-house remake for home consoles that can be played on our giant TVs and really makes the game look as great in real life as it does in our collective memories.

These videos from perpetual Unreal Engine tinkerer CryZENx may be little more than a homemade tech demo, but right now they’re the closest thing I and my fellow gamer nerds are going to get to a fully fledged remake, and they’re so pretty that we just had to share.

Here Link explores the entrance to Ocarina of Time’s Gerudo Valley:

And here he is in an absolutely gorgeous Zora’s Domain:

We hope you’re paying attention out there, Nintendo. We know Zelda‘s your game and everything, and who are we to tell you what to do with it, but still, something like this would be just fine with us.

Oh, and a current-gen Majora’s Mask remake while you’re at it, please…
