Nintendo has responded to a fan petition asking the company to immortalize the late Robin Williams in a future “Legend of Zelda” game. Williams had been an avid fan of the franchise since 1987, even naming his daughter after its heroine. The pair had recently been hired to promote the latest installment of the game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
In a statement, the company addressed its longtime relationship with the comedian and sent sincere condolences to Williams’ family, but did not outright promise to fulfill the petition’s request.
The statement after the jump.
