    Fans Want A Robin Williams Tribute In The Next Zelda, Nintendo Responds

    The late Robin Williams was so smitten with The Legend of Zelda he famously named his daughter after the title character. Shades of World of Warcraft, fans have banded together via Change.org petition to ask Nintendo to honor the actor and comedian in the next game in the series, and Nintendo has responded.

    The petition, now with more than 100,000 signatures, is a heartfelt plea from fans that the next entry in the series name a non-player character "Robin" in Williams' memory.

    In a statement to Polygon, a Nintendo representative expressed the company's love for Williams, offering its condolences to his family, especially daughter Zelda Williams, who has worked with Nintendo on several occasions, including a commercial with her father for the 3DS remake of The Ocarina of Time and the celebrity tournament at the Super Smash Bros. Invitational at E3 earlier this year.
