Kanye West is planning to release a video game based on his mother’s ascension to heaven.
The game and its accompanying trailer were revealed at the tail-end of West’s extravagant launch event for his new album and clothing linein New York last night.
The trailer for the game (see below) sees Donda West, who passed away in 2007, riding on the back of a white horse before growing wings and flying through the sky. ‘Only One’ shares a name with the Paul McCartney collaboration Kanye West released in 2014.
Speaking to the audience at Madison Square Garden, West said: “The idea of the game is my mom traveling through the gates of heaven.”
West launched his new album with a listening party and fashion show at New York’s Madison Square Garden last night (February 11). The arena event marked the launch of West’s Yeezy Season 3 range with Adidas and the première of his new album.

Earlier this week, West announced that his new album’s current title bears the initials ‘TLOP’, revealing that the letters stand for ‘The Life Of Pablo’.

Initially announced as ‘So Help Me God’ in March 2015, West then changed his album’s title to ‘Swish’ a few months later in May 2015. Just a couple of weeks prior to the album’s official release though, West changed the name again to ‘Waves’. West took to Twitter to confirm the album’s current title as ‘The Life Of Pablo’.
