Late movie star Robin Williams was a big fan of playing video games -- so big, in fact, that he named daughter Zelda after the popular Nintendo game -- and now he'll be immortalized as a "non-player character" (NPC) in at least one upcoming series.
Fans of the actor petitioned to have a character added to popular online gaming series "World of Warcraft" on Change.org, and the game's producer, Blizzard Entertainment, answered their call.
Ion Hazzikosta, the lead designer for "World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor," announced that a character honoring the comedian, who died earlier this week, would be included in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) during an event promoting the game, according to the Associated Press.
