Actress Zelda Williams will livestream herself playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild later today to benefit charity. The event begins at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET and will be broadcast through the LVLUP Dojo Twitch channel. In a tweet, Williams said she has some "surprises" in store (via Polygon).
In another tweet, Williams said she plans to play for "most of the afternoon/evening." Williams said she picked up Breath of the Wild earlier this week and beat the four shrines already, so the stream "won't be all startup stuff."
Williams said she is enjoying what she's played of Breath of the Wild so far, specifically calling out the game's "vastness" and exploration elements.
Her stream today will benefit the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, a group founded in 1987 that awards grants for scientific research for mental illness.
Williams is the daughter of actor Robin Williams, who took his own life in 2014. She is named after the princess from Nintendo's longrunning video game series.
Robin and Zelda Williams were featured in Zelda video game advertisements for Nintendo in the past.
GameSpot's Breath of the Wild review scored the Nintendo Switch and Wii U game a 10/10. The game has become Nintendo's best-selling non-bundled launch title for any Nintendo platform ever.
