The rapper tried to create a partnership with the video game company on a project, but failed.
Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that Kanye West attempted to partner with the video game brand and that his proposal fell through at the time.
Fils-Aime said that a few years ago he met with the rapper to work together on a project, but the company had to decline the offer due to the large number of games they were working on.
The executive commented that West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, was also present at the meeting.
Kanye attended an event where he visited the Nintendo booth and spoke with Shigeru Miyamoto, the famous 68-year-old video game designer and producer. Then the artist requested a meeting with Fils-Aime in California.
According to the former Nintendo manager, Kanye commented that he was working on the concept of a game and that Nintendo would help him develop it:
“I said, ‘Kanye, you don’t want to work with us, we are difficult, very difficult. All we do is push for the best content. We’re not the type of partner you want to work with, ‘”Reggie reminds himself, adding that the singer didn’t give up.
However, the negotiations were unsuccessful and the executive had to reject the project.
