Nintendo share their sympathies over Robin Williams’ death


Nintendo have shared their condolences over the untimely death of Robin Williams, saying that he was “loved” at the company.

Their comments came in response to a petition, now signed by more than 107,000 supporters, in which fans pleaded that he be memorialised in the new The Legend of Zelda game destined for Wii U next year.

“Robin Williams was loved at Nintendo,” the company shared with Polygon. “Our hearts go out to his entire family, and especially to Zelda Williams who we’ve worked with multiple times.

“We appreciate the outpouring of support from the gaming community, and hear the request of fans to honour him in a future game. We will not be discussing what might be possible for future games during this difficult time, but we will hold our memories of Robin close.”
