Nicki Minaj’s mobile game is slated to be released on December 8.
Glu Mobile announced back in August of 2015 that Nicki Minaj was set to get her own mobile game a la the mega successful and highly addictive “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” game.
“Nicki brings to Glu her audience of over 100 million social followers and a new music category,” Glu Mobile CEO Niccolo de Masi said in a press release from 2015. “We look forward to combining Nicki’s distinctive style and massive global appeal with Glu’s celebrity social gaming expertise.”
While Kim’s game centers around fame, photoshoots and Twitter followers, Nicki’s game will be focused on gamers becoming entrepreneurs to build the mogul-esque lifestyle of a rap star and is appropriately titled “Nicki Minaj: The Empire.”
“This year for my birthday I’m giving my fans the most incredible gift ever,” the “Black Barbie” wrote on Instagram. “#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.”
Glu has also partnered up with Britney Spears, Jason Statham, Katy Perry and Kylie & Kendall Jenner to bring them their own mobile games. Since “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” accounted for 31% of Glu Mobile’s revenue in 2014, they’re hoping with Nicki’s millions of online followers that it will be just as successful.
