Ever wonder what Samus would look like in HD? Well wonder no more, as YouTuber CryZENx has made a small tech demo depicting Nintendo's beloved series in Unreal Engine 4.
Utilising DX12, this fancy demo shows us Samus from both a first and third-person perspective as she struts around showing off her shiny suit, nifty arm cannon, and spherical contortions. It looks impressive to be sure, though it's a shame that the art direction here isn't more alien as this so-called Sun Temple looks more Infinity Blade than Metroid.
One wonders how Metroid will actually look when Nintendo inevitably puts the series on a modern day platform (assuming the upcoming NX is competitive to other contemporary hardware). Will it go the realistic route of this video, or intentionally opt for a more cartoony feel as Nintendo has been doing with Mario and Zelda in recent years? How would you like it to look?
If your rig can handle it, there's a downloadable playable version of this tech demo, even though there's not much to actually do in it but marvel at the pretty lighting.
