December 8 is going to be a big day for Nicki Minaj and her fans. The female rapper is going to release her first mobile game. Back in August 2015, Glu Mobile made an announcement stating that Minaj was going to get her own mobile game, similar to the famous “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” game, that has been a huge success since its release. Now, her vision is becoming reality.
Glu Mobile is really excited to work with Minaj. “Nicki brings Glu her audience of over 100 million social followers and new music category. We look forward to combining Nicki’s distinctive style and massive global appeal with Glu’s celebrity social gaming expertise,” said Niccolo de Masi, Glu Mobile CEO.
The game will be called “Nicki Minaj: The Empire” and will focus on gamers becoming entrepreneurs and building their own empire. “Barbie” teased her fans with an Instagram post, saying “This year for my birthday I’m giving my fans the most incredible gift ever. #NickiMinajTheEMPIRE – in just one week [Dec. 8th] you’ll get to create you own Rap Empire where you can record yourself rapping on the same track as me.” Basically, gamers will be able to choose nice outfits, change their looks, go to the studio, record songs and perform many other activities that a real life rapper does.
This year for my birthday I’m giving my fans the most incredible gift ever. #NickiMinajTheEMPIRE – in just one week [Dec. 8th] you’ll get to create your own Rap Empire where you can record yourself rapping on the same track as me. I can’t contain my excitement about this GAME/APP. We’ve been working on it for a long time. You’re going to FALL IN LOVE with it.
