Chrono Cross Unreal Engine 5 fan project is gorgeous

Shown off in a short Youtube video, this beloved local has been given a total makeover in UE5.

Another week, and another impressive looking Unreal Engine 5 project has appeared for us to goggle and gawk at. This time, Arni village from adored JRPG Chrono Cross has gotten a top-to-bottom makeover in the new engine, courtesy of the youtuber Studio logic.

In a video uploaded to their channel, embedded below for everyone who wants to take a look at this eye watering project themselves, the creator shows off two distinct and gorgeous shots of the village. The first, of the village centre with multiple ocean-side huts adorned with colourful cloth. The second is the dock, which looks out over the ocean with distant islands off in the distance.

This small showing of Arni village stands in complete contrast to some of the demos we’ve seen already, super vibrant and reminiscent of the original game as opposed to the super realistic visuals found in the Matrix demo we received not too long ago. Pair this with the brilliant Mirror’s Edge project we saw last week, and we’re totally sold for more of these beautiful touch ups on video game classics.

There’s no word on whether this particular UE5 project will receive future updates, as the creator has not indicated any desire to continue expanding the project. However, for those who love it you can grab it on Wallpaper Engine for a new relaxing backdrop for your day to day gaming grinds or 9-5.

In more Unreal Engine 5 news, it was recently revealed that the next Tomb Raider game will be created using Unreal Engine 5. Let us know what you think of this Unreal Engine 5 project, and Unreal Engine 5 in general, in the comments below!
