A YouTuber by the name of WonceOfficial took the time to completely recreate the classic Japanese Dragon Ball Z intro theme from start to finish in the game, No Man's Sky, and the final product is pretty darn impressive. Nailing each and every shot, Wonce's creation utilizes a variety of content from No Man's Sky to represent various aspects of the world of Dragon Ball Z, and any and all fans of the anime should check this one out.
Upon its release, No Man's Sky experienced a fairly negative reception, as many reviews claimed the game consisted of a giant world that really didn't have anything interesting inside of it. Since that release though, developer Hello Games has been working to improve the game with frequent updates, and a great handful of players have returned as a result. Now, to further contribute to the list of reasons why somebody might want to come back to the game, WonceOfficial has shown us that you can use it to make some pretty incredible cinematic pieces.
The video reportedly took Wonce over six months to finish, so it's clear that this was a sort of passion project for him. Obviously his effort paid off, and the beautiful 1:1 recreation of the original Dragon Ball Z intro is a blast to watch for anyone who grew up watching the series. From the world's purple sky, to the red "dragon ball" orb, and the motion and animation of the series' characters, to say that Wonce put a lot of time and attention to detail into this project would be an understatement.
Obviously, you can't play as Goku or Gohan within No Man's Sky, so they've been replaced with character models from the game, but other than that switch, the video is pretty much spot on. Without modding the game and including actual Dragon Ball Z character models, it's very unlikely that somebody can do a better job at making this a faithful recreation, and Wonce deserves a tip of the hat.
Wonce's recreation of the Dragon Ball Z theme serves as yet another example of just how endless the possibilities are when it comes to the creativity of content creators and video game fans. Both fans of Dragon Ball Z and No Man's Sky alike can appreciate this recreation, and it's always nice knowing that people are still out there working to come up with creative gaming content for the rest of us to enjoy.
