Kanye West-Inspired "Kanye Quest 3030" Video Game Now Available

The game with a virtual Kanye West battling Nicki Minaj and Lil B clones is now available, despite no authorization or affiliation with the superstar rapper.

According to Kotaku.com, a video game version of Windy City rapper Kanye West will serve as the protagonist in a newly-released, Japanese role-playing game (RPG) titled “Kanye Quest 3030.” Created by Phenix, "Kanye Quest 3030" is described as “a hip-hop-themed science-fiction 2D roleplaying game starring Kanye West” that’s set in the year 3030.

The game, which is not actually endorsed by West, also features artists such as Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Lil B, Tupac, and the Notorious B.I.G. But unlike West, the other rappers featured in the game are clones who are controlled by a “god-like dictator.”

“Kanye Quest 3030” is far from the first video game to incorporate a rapper or other musician. Beginning in 2003, Def Jam began to release a series of Hip Hop-heavy video games. The first, titled “Def Jam Vendetta” was a wrestling video game, which featured DMX, Joe Budden, Ludacris, and a handful of other artists.

Hip Hop has also been prominent in the soundtracks of various video games including “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” and “NBA 2K13.”

The trailer for “Kanye Quest 3030” can be found below.
