Kanye West once pitched Miyamoto a videogame

Former IGN journalist and current Twitch employee Zachary Ryan has shared an anecdote about an E3 meeting of minds between two great creators: videogame legend Shigeru Miyamoto and musician Kanye West.

It’s been known before that the meeting took place—former Nintendo executive Reggie Fils-Aime has mentioned it in previous interviews—but this is essentially Miyamoto’s account. It should be taken with appropriate caveats of course: Ryan’s recounting an eight-year-old story here, and Miyamoto’s thoughts were delivered via translation. So don’t take it as a word-by-word recreation of the scene, but as the fun insight it is.
