 Zelda Dungeon Editor is an upcoming Sandbox/Construction game that is the spiritual sucessor to Super Mario Editor. Like its predecessor it allows the player to construct levels (dungeons) from the Legend of Zelda series using a Tile Editor style program with the WiiU or 3DS and then attempt to complete the dungeon allowing the creator to submit the dungeon once it has been tested.

The game also has multiple overlays that use the graphical capabilities of various games from the series; The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past & The Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening. There are several bosses who appear as selectable enemies for the dungeons that span these three games. Unlike its Mario counterpart, Zelda Dungeon Editor does not use any recent Legend of Zelda Games primarily due to them all having a 3D environment.

When playing a dungeon the player is able to move around as they would in the original Legend of Zelda and are always initially equipped with the Sword & Shield as well as any other items the creator may have given the character. Creators can arrange there Dungeons into Folders allowing the Dungeons to be played in a specific order somewhat like a Boss Rush Mode and can be looked as similar to going through any of the three games with the exception of Story or Outside World.


In the game editor the player is able to choose from various overlays for their dungeon, however only one game's art style can be used at a time. The Dungeon's colours are shown below the overlay and differ depending on the overlay.

Classic Overlay

The Original Legend of Zelda Overlay features a primary, secondary and two tertiary colours to its dungeons as shown in this image below.

Overlay Classic
As Shown there are only four colours that affect the dungeons appearance. The Highlight is Light Blue, Main is Dark Aqua, Object Main is Blue & Shadow is Dark Blue. This is the only overlay to display the RGB numbers for each colour as the others contain more colours to change.

Awakening Overlay

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Overlay has twelve colours that affect various components of the dungeon's appearance, as shown in the image below.

Overlay Awakening

The First Row is Floor Highlight, Floor Main & Floor Base. The Second Row is Wall Highlight, Wall Main & Wall Shadow. The Third Row is Objects Highlight, Object Main & Object Shadow. The Fourth Row is Brick Highlight, Brick Main & Brick Base. This layer is more complex than the original as Link's awakening has a more complex colour palette than the original Legend of Zelda.

Past Overlay

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Overlay has eleven colours that, similar to the Awakening Overlay, affect various components of the dungeon's appearance, as shown in the image below.

Past Overlay
The First Column is Wall Colours; Highlight, Main, Secondary & Shadow. The Second Column is Floor Colours; Highlight, Main & Border. The Third Column is Object Colours; Highlight, Main, Secondary & Border. This overlay is the only one of the three with truly altered sprites of their original as shown with the statues that were originally 16x24 but were shrunk to 16x16 to fit the overlay.

Most Dungeon styles from the Link's Awakening & Link to the Past games appear as alternate versions of their respective overlays.


The gallery below details the sprites such as enemies, objects & items used in the game, currently the sprites being used are being chosen and only the first set of sprites from the original Legend of Zelda have been revealed. These are; nine enemies, 3 objects and 6 items although more sprites will be announced in the future.
