While many games are provided for entertainment and the spirit of fun, they can also provide a good deal of service and honor to sports and real-life events they are based in, with in particular the Gran Turismo series seeking to emulate the thrills and rush of racing as accurately as possible.

The PlayStation Blog announced today that in celebrating the 20th anniversary for the passing of legendary racer Ayrton Senna, a three-time F1 champion, Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital will honor Senna with a variety of content to showcase his life as a racer, including a special tribute website, a short film (titled “Ayrton’s Wish”), and special in-game racing content for Gran Turismo 6 that will be arriving for the game later in May.

You can check out the full short film on Senna below, along with a provided screenshot (above) of some of the content coming to Gran Turismo 6 this month to honor a legend:
