Yeah, it's really happening. After the success of 'free to play' games, along with Kim Kardashian: Hollywood (which made $74 million in 2014), Nicki Minaj is starring in a new game set to release next year.
Developer Glu has announced that it will also feature the star's likeness, voice and creative direction (A.K.A butts and booty and boobies). Here's what CEO Niccolo de Masi had to say in a statement:
"I am thrilled to welcome the undisputed queen of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj, to Glu's growing list of celebrity partners"
In terms of the near future, Glu revealed they are looking to develop another game featuring Jason Statham known as Sniper X: Kill Confirmed- a 'high pressure FPS'.
There are some games I am looking forward to on the horizon that you should probably focus on instead of this such as...
1.) Life is Strange Episode 5: Polarized
2.) Kingdom Hearts III
And until then, I won't touch this thing with a pink barge pole.
