It looks like a petition to get recently deceased comedian Robin Williams inserted into World of Warcraft as an NPC has succeeded.

Williams – a Warcraft and Zelda fan – died earlier this week aged 63.

Following the news of his death, more than 10,000 gamers signed a petition requesting he live on in World of Warcraft.

It looks like Blizzard are on the case, with game designer Chadd Nervigg telling a fan his company is “taking care of it”.
