Diddy Kong Racing is one of the best racing games of the 64 bit era and CryZENx, a fan of the series, hacked together a new demo of the N64 classic running on the Unreal Engine 4. The end product is clearly a proof of concept, but it has fans of the Nintendo racer clamoring for more. Diddy Kong Racing featured land, air, and water races and is totally due for an HD remaster or a brand new release. In the meantime, we can thank CryZENx for putting togehter this neat demo. Please take a look at the video for gameplay footage of Diddy Kong Racing 64 running on Unreal Engine 4.
