News of Hamilton’s involvement in the game was confirmed today when French television station M6 aired a broadcast featuring an interview with Hamilton discussing his involvement in the game and exclusive footage of him participating in motion capture filming. Hamilton is slated to appear in six game sequences to include talking parts. No word yet on whether his character is going to be a friend or a foe.
“I grew up with Super Mario, where the graphics were outdated at the time,” Hamilton said. “It’s crazy to see how far it [computer games] went – the realization is unbelievable.”
“I loved it, it was a great experience, I am incredibly honored to be part of this game. I’ve been a fan for years.”
