Unreal Engine 4 Zelda fan tech demo lets you fight against the Darknut, available for download

YouTube’s ‘Aklar_45’ has released a new Zelda fan tech demo in Unreal Engine 4. This demo lets you control Fierce Deity Link and allows you to fight Darknut. What’s also interesting here is that Aklar_45 aims to release a VR version of this demo too in the near future.

As most fan tech demos, this one is also a bit rough around the edges. The hit reactions, in particular, are not that great. Still, and since Nintendo will not release any Zelda game on the PC, I believe this will put a smile on the face of all those gamers who desperately want to play (or see) a Zelda game running on the PC.

In case you weren’t aware of, the Darknut resembles a large knight, equipped with heavy armor and a large sword, and a wide shield. On the other hand, Fierce Deity Link is one of the transformations Link turns into in Majora’s Mask, achieved by wearing the Fierce Deity’s Mask.

This tech demo features one level and can be downloaded from here.

Have fun!
