This July 21 marks a new anniversary of the birth of Robin Williams.

The artist, also a video game fan The Legends of Zelda from Nintendo, He passed away on August 11, 2014. The loss of this actor meant a great sadness not only for his family but for all of Hollywood and his followers.
Williams hadn’t been feeling very well for quite some time. He had lost weight and addictions had plagued him again. On the other hand, several of his colleagues had noticed, in recent months, how that smile that characterized him so much had completely vanished, leaving little of the face of that man who had conquered the public.
However, his time in the cinema and his charisma have left an indelible mark. So much so that it is even necessary to remember him on his birthday. And one of the artist’s fiercest fanaticisms (in addition to acting) were video games and one in particular. Williams was a loyal follower of the saga The Legends of Zelda. And in fact when he passed away Nintendo possibly gave him a tribute that the actor would have loved. Look.
Nintendo’s tribute to Robin Williams in Zelda
Robin Williams He had been participating in several commercials of the game saga, in the last years of his life. But his fanaticism for Zelda, created by Shigeru Miyamoto Y Takashi Tezuka in 1986, it was nothing new.

Without a doubt, the actor was a true geek and loved spending hours in front of the playstation. It was one of his favorite hobbies, besides riding a bike. So when he passed away, fans of The Legends of Zelda created a petition for Nintendo pay a kind of tribute to the actor.
Nintendo did not hesitate for a single second to respond to that request within a few days. “Robin Williams was loved in Nintendo. A Nintendo spokesperson offered. Our hearts go out to her entire family, and especially to Zelda Williams, with whom we have worked several times. We appreciate the huge amount of support from the gaming community and we hear the request from fans to honor him in a future game. We won’t discuss what might be possible for future games during this difficult time, but we will keep our memories of Robin close by. “the company said at the time.
After that, it is believed that the study paid him a possible tribute through the creation of a character called Dayto and that appears in The Legends of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, released for both Switch and Wii U. Specifically, it is a man with very similar features to the interpreter, located very close to the Eldin area in the game.
