A new member in our forum by the name of herbalcell has created a hyper-realistic image of Ocarina of Time’s Graveyard on Blender.

It is incredibly rare to see such artists develop such breathtaking pieces of art for the Legend of Zelda series.

They have provided us with two screenshots of the Graveyard; One from the original game itself and their rendered version:


OoT Graveyard Before


OoT Graveyard After

According to them, their rendered version took a couple of months to make.

About their work, they had this to say:

“I was hoping this would give people a good idea of what a hyper-realistic Zelda game might feel like, playing on the familiar graveyard we already know and love. Romping through as a child, disturbing gravestones, fighting Poes, digging holes with Dampé… I hope my hours of hard work sparks some interesting conversation about future Zelda games.”

How would you feel if Ocarina of Time was remade again with such visuals? Should Ocarina of Time be given yet another remake, maybe on the console after the Wii U for maximum performance of these sort of visuals? Post your comment below!

Check out their thread in our forum to discuss what a hyper-realistic Zelda game might feel like, or check out their blog below for more information regarding their project.

    this is awesome the graphics are beautiful.

  • joko

    no, remake mm

  • HyruleWeirdo

    How about they don't remake an overly-hyped, constantly re-released game? I mean, really, how many other LoZ games have been remade?

    • Guil.

      A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening were remade. Both of which are better games than Ocarina of Time.

      • HyruleWeirdo

        When was A Link to the Past remade?

        • OoTfan1225

          a link to the past was re made into a ds version i belive

    • GrackuilleO'Neill

      No offense to anyone who loves the game, just as I do, but I'll have to agree, as I'm getting kind of tired of seeing Ocarina of Time get all of this special treatment. Yes, it was a fantastic game for its time (and it still is) but I think people should, instead, focus on either working on games that actually deserve some kind of graphical upgrade, or just make a new game entirely…

      It just seems like a waste of potential.

      • OoTfan1225

        i agree with you too! I was hoping that when i had 50 dollars that i got for christmas that they would announce SOMTHINZG about M M or a new zelda game being re released(Hopefully not again) or just a new one being made

    • veeronic

      totally remade from the ground up? once… I don't count re-releases of the what's essentially the exact same game with minor improvements and additions.

      • HyruleWeirdo

        But it's been re-released so much that a remake would be useless.

  • Vladislak

    If they MUST remake a game I'd prefer it to be A Link to the Past, I recall Miyamoto expressing interest in doing so for the 3DS, so hopefully that'll be a reality some time soon.

    But personally, I'd rather they just focus all their efforts on making brand new games instead of trying to wring more cash out of old games by updating their graphics and interface.

  • Soeroah

    It looks fantastic, but if the whole game was made with graphics like those, I just feel like the characters would seem out of place.

    As beautiful as they make environments, humans don't seem as good in high quality. They look..weird.

  • Escarole

    I can't see the pictures 🙁

    • pixelink

      me neither, the first two posts appear with broken images

      • Beka

        Neither can I 🙁

      • HyruleWeirdo

        I can see them, though.

        • Sanity's_Theif

          I can't see the images either

    • Pulgasari

      I also can't see them.

    • kittyxxhello

      Glad I'm not the only one.

  • Bingo

    Maybe they should just make a good new Zelda game instead.

  • Sanity's_Theif

    Ah, I can see it now, AMAZING I love it

  • Nouvione

    They should release a Zelda HD Collection with all major console games remade, so they don't remake games every few years.Everyone happy!

  • TheMaverickk

    The thing is that I think other Zelda games should be remade, and those remakes could be much more drastic changes in experience.

    For example what if Spirit Tracks was remade but for a console system, and the whole mechanics were revised and the graphical style was revised. It would be really impressive.

    Sand Sharsk…. in HD!!!! Awesome!

    Or even an HD of Majora's Mask would be better.

  • iDuffman

    Ocarina of Time was a great game. But it's been ported to both the Gamecube and the Wii, and it had a 3DS remake. Enough is enough. Let's get some new games. Ocarinaof Time has had enough of this special treatment.

  • Zelda's Scribe

    I love herbalcell's Zelda sheet music! I go there all the time.
