Strap on your tunic and bust out the ocarina – The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is en route, and it is looking more beautiful than ever. This is all thanks to the incredibly talented and devoted designer, CryZENx, who is making the inspiring journey to recreate the gaming phenomenon with jaw-dropping visuals. This is something that has been in the works for a fair few years now, and people are still hyperventilating over it. But, as 2020 settles in, the next updates are approaching and the full release is hopefully right around the corner. But, don’t take our word for that. Simply cross your fingers and pray.
Joseph (CryZENx) began the quest to revive the cult classic back in 2015 by working on smaller sections of the game. With multiple feet dipped in several pools, the now twenty-five-year-old developer looked to craft various aspects of the game and string them together at a later date. Now, after four long years of working tirelessly, he has proven to the world what hard work and loyalty can accomplish. From enchanting forests to luscious meadows, fluid controls to polished combat; CyrZENx has gifted Zelda fans with a package of material that is both inspiring and nostalgic.
Using Unreal Engine 4, CryZENx has built and successfully tested countless projects in his seven-year YouTube career. But, it’s not only Zelda that has been brought to the table since the launch of the account. We’ve also been graced with hundreds, if not thousands of other projects from multiple award-winning franchises. With performance upgrades, remastered visuals and standalone sketches, CryZENx has made his mark as one of the most ambitious developers in the business. And, if Nintendo hasn’t enrolled him into the fold by 2021, we’ll be very, very upset.
Take a look at some of the work CryZENx has uploaded over 2019 here:
Oh, and if you were curious to know what sort of equipment was used for crafting this delightful project, Joseph was kind enough to provide it for us. Take a look for yourselves. Maybe you can look to start work on Majora’s Mask, you know, providing CryZENx hasn’t already beaten you to it.

Okay, so I’ll likely be the English guy who attempts to cover American news. Actually, I’ll probably be the guy who just tries to cover everything and eventually ends up sleep-deprived and broken. Hey, I chose the life of a journalist, so I guess I should accept these consequences sooner rather than later. Ah well – The Nerd Stash is worth it. If you’ve got something for me to cover, I’ll probably do it.
