Well that’s awesome! – Castlevania remade in Unreal Engine

I’m amazed I hadn’t found this sooner, but it seems like someone is making a lot of effort in remaking Castlevania using the Unreal Engine and I have to say it looks very promising.


It seems like the creator Dejawolfs has been working on this project for a number of months and last week posted their latest update.

From the design, this is a true to original remake with obviously improved graphics. Dejawolfs has kept the sidescrolling level design although with added depth to the level.

In a more recent post Dejawolfs states that the framerate is massively improved thanks to a change in the lighting and particle effects.

Even so it looks very impressive despite its very rough and ready appearance.
