Following Robin Williams’ death earlier this week, a petition has been gaining supporters who want the actor to be memorialized in the next Legend of Zelda game.

The petition on change.org has received more than 83,000 supporters as of this writing, and impels Nintendo to include the iconic comedian as an NPC named “Robin” in the Legend of Zelda title on Wii U.

“He won’t get to play it, but he’ll live on forever in a universe he always loved,” the petition’s page reads.

The actor was a fan of the series since 1987, and named his daughter after the franchise’s princess. The father and daughter duo were also recently hired to promote Nintendo’s property in a series of ads for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

The new petition surfaced along with a similar one, in which World of Warcraft players asked to have Williams included in the MMORPG, another game the actor was particularly fond of. The petition succeeded, as confirmed when a Blizzard Entertainment employee said “Yes. We’re taking care of it.”
