I remember when OoT was announced for 3DS, there was a video of her and her dad playing it together. It looked really sweet.
I miss that man.
Hell yeah, man. Robin Williams was a big inspiration for me as a kid and a huge influence on my sense of humor and my love of the absurdity of life. Those OoT commercials and the Skyward Sword trailers he did endeared me to him even more. His death hurt me in a way I didn't know a celebrity's could affect me. He was a beautiful person that I will miss greatly for the rest of my days.
Wow, Zelda Williams is 31? That means when she was born the only Zelda games out were the original Legend of Zelda and Zelda II. Robin Williams sure did love the series very very early on.
Anyone who was a gamer back then loved it. Pretty much pioneered open world gaming.
I'd do the same thing if I was her tbh. Just too perfect of an opportunity. Lol.
Obligatory [both of you are pretty magical](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09wBn4ux3N0) is obligatory.
I love this commercial. Its so pure.
I miss Robin Williams
I'm working from home currently. Walked downstairs to grab some drinks. At that moment my daughter of 6 years old was watching "Flubber" for the first time. Instantly reminded by the fact it was also one of my first movies I got introduced with Robin Williams and loved so many movies that he played a part in. His death and Iwata's are the only 2 deaths of famous people that really hit hard when it happened. Just a piece of childhood that's suddenly gone.
All hail the great uniter
Oh my god, I knew she was named after LoZ, but I didn't know she was born so soon after the first game.
Only 2 Zelda games were out when Robin named her, he must have really loved them.
as someone who was introduced to Zelda as a 4 year old, with A Link To The Past. I can’t imagine how hard that game must have slapped if you were already a fan of 1 and 2. Like you already love what the franchise is doing and then ALTTP comes out and reinvents the entire genre. Holy fuck.
Wait hold on- only the first 2 Zelda games came out by the time she was born?? I knew Robin Williams absolutely loved the Zelda series but I had no idea he loved it so much that by only the second game he would have named his daughter after it. What a legend (if you will).
From an old interview, he got an NES a few months before Zelda was born and the original game captivated him. Turned into a lifelong love of gaming that bordered on addiction, he loved military shooters but said OoT was GOAT.

What’s funny is that she said more than Nintendo
Which hurt me more than I expected it to.
Man zelda williams is so cool lol
Vote to get the next incarnation of Zelda modeled after Zelda Williams?
I'm still salty they didn't get her to voice Zelda in BotW. That would have been amazing.
This is why nintendo kept quiet
I didn’t get the joke..please don’t kill me..??
No problemo, mi amigo. Feb. 21st is LoZ's 35th anniversary, and Zelda Williams (Robin Williams Daughter, who is named after princess Zelda) is only 31 this year. So she made a little joke about everyone celebrating her 35th birthday 4 years early.
So I guess that answers when we will be getting the Legend of Zelda 3D All Stars.
Hahahahaha! Now I'm sad...
RGT85 has great videos
Indeed! Been a fan of his for a while now and he's become a channel I watch on the reg.
That is cute. It was sweet that Robin shared his love of video games with his daughter. Sill miss the guy. He was my favorite comedian.
She has such a cool name! I’m surprised more people aren’t name after Zelda.
Omg, she's great XD
Zelda is such an awesome name.
I’m reading about Robin and just told a co-worker that he had three kids and that his daughter was named Zelda.
We just looked her up 15 minutes ago.
Hang on, is she just 4 years younger than TLoZ ? Was Robin Williams a grown man playing Zelda and got his daughter named after it? Did his wife know what TLoZ was? Regardless, what a chad!
Edit: I'm an idiot who mistook younger for older
Check your math.
Not even a tweet from Nintendo.
Its a damn shame.
This should posted in r/legendofkorra. After all, she voiced Kuvira
But it’s about Zelda?
I love these jokes :))
She is thirty-one but the game named just like her is now thirty five
She was named after the game, not the other way around.
I miss her dad every day :(
I'm not crying you're crying!!!
What's up with the Zelda Williams thing?
Zelda Williams is the daughter of Robin Williams who was named after the titular character in legend of Zelda which Robin and his wife played during her pregnancy which was by accounts difficult.
This year is the 35th anniversary of the legend of Zelda franchise.
did he name is daughter specifically after the game?
Yeah. Robin Williams was a huge LoZ fan.
TIL Robin Williams' daughter is the same age as me. Neat. And now I'm sad. RIP Robin
Is she gonna be zelda in the live action loz movie
She has her dad's sense of humor.
If they ever make another Zelda animated series, have Zelda Williams voice either Zelda’s mother, or a previous incarnation of her as sort of a fun Easter egg.
We know she’s not above voice acting, as she voiced Kuvira in Legend of Korra, so... yeah!!!!
