Zelda Maker: A Brainstorming Thread

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Zelda Maker: A Brainstorming Thread

I love Mario Maker and I would also love Zelda Maker :)
I think it's possible to be released sometimes, but I believe it would be reduced to build only dungeons. But that would also be fine with me.

Why would anyone want this?

Dont you guys care about level design? puzzles? story?
Zelda isnt 2D Super Mario. Leave that stuff to the Pro's.

This sounds like it ll be a mess at most.


Metroid Maker sounds alot more reasonable than a Zelda one, as Freebs2 mentioned above.
That "could" potentially work out.... I guess.

I just dont see this working with zelda though.

Why couldn't we have the ability to make our own stories and make our own uniquely crafted dungeon designs and world to share with everyone?  I think a Zelda maker would have MASSIVE potential and would be completely different than your typical RPG maker or Mario Maker.

I guess if they make the tools complex enough.... Dreams for the PS4 is basically such a thing.
So maybe it could work,.... its just, its vastly differnt from a 2D platforming Mario Maker, where it doesnt demand much of the designer.



Number of days to reach 50M from 40M : 198 days
Number of days to reach 60M from 50M : 187 days
Number of days to reach 70M from 60M : 175 days
Number of days to reach 80M from 70M : 227 days

Imagine being able to make boomerangs that burn bushes, hammers that turn normally unbreakable walls into secret passageways, blue flames that turn your enemies into ice, arrows that turn enemies into stone, etc, etc. All of the typical items could be given unusal properties and the entire nature of the game could be bent just like we're doing with Mario. There is some truly wacky stuff that could be done, like replacing the bomb explosion animation with flowers or atom bombs or whatever.



Yes, I have thought about a Zelda Maker for a while now.  It could be something as simple as creating and sharing your own dungeons for the original Legend of Zelda.  Something more ambitious would be able to also be able to tinker with the Overworld Map as well and create your own "Third Quest" so to speak.  Moving Shop, Special Item, and Dungeon locations like a do it yourself Zelda Randomizer.

A more complex creation process would be the only way it would work, and that is not a bad thing.  Many people just want to play the levels rather than create them, and it would give options to creators between using a simpler Mario Maker game or the more complex Zelda maker.

Anything other than that and yes, your concerns would come into fruition.  However I do not think that anyone who wants this truly wants nor expects a Zelda skin Mario Maker.

How about a Picross maker? I know Rol would spend hundreds of hours on that game. He might be one of the few buyers though. So in essence he could share the levels to himself.
