In case you missed it, the official announcement of the video game Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy included a look at what characters to expect with players taking on the role of Peter Quill/Star-Lord and making calls with a team comprised of Drax, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot. It also showed off other characters known from comics and elsewhere like Mantis and Cosmo the Spacedog. Also, there was a space llama. The space llama, it seems, is important enough to have its own name -- though it appears to be an entirely new creation for the video game.
According to a response from the official Twitter account for the upcoming video game, the space llama is named Kammy. It's worth noting that there is a "Cammi" associated with Drax specifically in Marvel's comics, but she is not a space llama. So, if anything, the name is merely an homage at best. Still, the fact that the space llama has a name seems to imply that it plays more than just a throwaway role, right? For now, we will all just have to wait to find out.
We have a space llama in here.
