Who knew that American comedian Robin Williams has been a fan of The Legend of Zelda series since 1987, when he and his family first discovered the joys of guiding Link through trap-filled dungeons on the Nintendo Entertainment System?

In fact, he became so enamoured with the game that two years later he named his daughter Zelda after the series’ blonde princess.
