Kanye West Swaggers His Way Into... A JRPG?

I never knew how much the world needed a Japanese role-playing game starring Kanye West—not until I came across Kanye Quest 3030.

Now, the trailer for the game looks rough—in the way that most RPG Maker games do. But that's surface-level stuff; we've seen heavy-hitters made with RPG Maker before—think To The Moon or Actual Sunlight. But even if Kanye Quest is crap (I wasn't able to get it to work after I downloaded it), just the fact that it exists—and that someone out there put together a JRPG with Tupac's clone and Lil B—is amazing.


I'm especially convinced this is the case after watching a Let's Play by Theboxescast of the alpha—it's hard not to laugh at Kanye having to take the trash out. Or basically anything else that happens in the game, like having a random enemy encounter with Snoop Lion and Dr. Dre's clones. Take a look:

(Is everyone a clone? Does that include Kanye? Hmm...)

The game's development blog can be found here, and an alpha can be downloaded here.


And if a JRPG isn't up your alley, there's always Kanye Zone.
