article imageFans petition to have Robin Williams featured in next Zelda game

Following the announcement that Blizzard Entertainment will honor the late Robin Williams with a Non Playable Character (NPC) in 'World of Warcraft,' fans are asking Nintendo to do the same in the upcoming 'The Legend of Zelda.'
Well known as a respected comedian and an acclaimed actor, Robin Williams was also an avid gamer who played MMORPGs and shooters on a custom-built PC. He was also such a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda series that he named his daughter after the princess.
Williams even appeared alongside his daughter in a commercial for the The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, a Nintendo 3DS port of the classic N64 game.
Nick Schaedel organized the petition on asking Nintendo to honor the late comedian with a NPC named "Robin" in the upcoming The Legend of Zelda. Currently the petition has attracted over 89,000 signatures.
The petition was organized around the same time as Jacob Holgate started a petition to have Blizzard Entertainment honor Williams with a character in the World of Warcraft.
Despite the strong support from gamers, Nintendo has not yet responded to the petition.
In response to the controversy of Zelda Williams being harassed on Twitter, Schaedel has asked supports not to harass Nintendo employees while being respectful of the Williams privacy.
The Legend of Zelda will be the eighteenth game in the series and its set to be released for the Wii U in 2015. Robin Williams was found dead at the age of 63 from suicide on August 10.
