Kayne West presented a “very emotional” Nintendo game to Shigeru Miyamoto
Apparently, Kanye West went to E3 in 2015 to stalk Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto to pitch him a video game. Kanye West is a bit ambitious when it comes to his passions. He strives for the best and most unique content he can provide. His concerts are more than just shows with a person singing on stage, they are experiences. Kanye West has managed to secure IMAX screenings for his concerts in the past and has built elaborate sets to tell a very specific story among many other things. All this to say that Kanye is a very determined and undoubtedly perfectionist person.
It makes sense that he would want to work with the company that publishes some of the greatest games of all time. According to Zachary Ryan, he was finishing an interview with Miyamoto when the topic of Kanye West came up. Miyamoto immediately got excited and started telling a story of E3 2015. Miyamoto said that Kanye came to the Nintendo booth unscheduled and requested an audience with Miyamoto present. The acclaimed rapper then released a prototype for a game about his late mother, Donda West, flying to heaven. Miyamoto described it as “interesting” and “very moving”, but ultimately nothing came of it. Reggie Fils-Aime revealed a few years ago that a meeting between Nintendo and Kanye West took place, but Nintendo couldn’t collaborate with him due to their busyness with other projects and the feeling that they were not the right person for him. .
“The Life of Pablo” had just come out and our Nintendo rep knew I was a music fan and asked me if I was listening to it.
“Kanye! Miyamoto exclaimed and began telling a story emphatically. his translator sprang into action.
Miyamoto was telling a story about the previous E3.

At E3 2016, Kanye West officially announced the game with a trailer, titled it Only one. It’s a pretty good-looking game that was supposed to come out on mobile devices, but it never came out. Whether Kanye will ever find the right team to help him pull off this passion project remains to be seen, but it’s certainly one of Nintendo’s most unique stories.
