Kanye West’s ‘Only One’ Video Game Trailer Premieres at E3

Kanye West is taking over the gaming world.

The trailer for his “Only One” video game, which he previewed at the Yeezy Season 3 show in February, made its official debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles on Monday (Jun. 13).

Back in February, Mr. West explained the game’s inspiration. “The idea of the game is my mom traveling through the gates of heaven,” he said, referencing his late mother, Donda West. “I just wanna bring as much beauty to the world as possible.”

It’s unclear where “Only One” will land and its release date has yet to be announced.

Donda West died in 2007 after complications stemming from a plastic surgery procedure. She was 58.

Gaming also inspired Kanye’s next solo album title, Turbo Grafx 16, which serves as the follow-up to The Life of Pablo.

My next album is titled   "Turbo Grafx 16"   as of now…
