On the Talking Games with Reggie & Harold podcast, Former President of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime talked about his transient assembly with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West. Apparently, Kanye stopped by the Nintendo sales space at E3 a few years in the past, hung out with the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, and requested to fulfill with Reggie. The 2 visionaries sat down with one another in Kanye West’s trend workplace in Calabasas, California the place the famed rapper-producer would finally voice his curiosity in partnering with Nintendo to create a brand new online game.
Reggie recalled that the assembly was “fascinating” and felt that “Kanye [had] such a ardour for the online game area.” Regardless of this reward, Reggie politely declined Kanye’s pitch. “We had so many various initiatives at Nintendo occurring, the opportunity of doing one thing with Kanye simply wasn’t there, and so I needed to discover a method to politely decline this chance to work with him.” Reggie remembered telling West that Nintendo could be extremely troublesome to work with due to its dedication to prime quality content material and West replied enthusiastically stating, “Reggie, you are precisely the kind of companion I need due to that purpose!”
“A part of it was speaking about what he was as much as,” Reggie recounted. “He was experimenting with a chunk of online game content material; he needed reactions to it. He comes out and says, ‘I wish to work with Nintendo.'” Reggie did not go into an excessive amount of element on what the potential undertaking was about, however Kanye West isn’t any stranger to the video games business. In 2015, West revealed Only One, a sport devoted to his late mom Donda the place gamers could be tasked with guiding Donda to heaven. Though a trailer (beneath) was finally launched for the sport, there was no additional information surrounding the event of Solely One.
