Fetty Wap is swerving in a new mobile video game called Fetty Wap: Nitro Nation Stories. In partnership with Moor Games and Creative Mobile, the New Jersey spitter (alongside his 1738 associate Monty) puts his passion for race cars and bikes in motion for the new app, that not only features their video game likeness but also Fetty and Monty’s music.
“All of the stakeholders in this project were committed to creating something truly unique,” says Davon Robinson, co-founder of Moor Games in a statement sent to Billboard. ”Fetty Wap and Monty are true creatives and have a few surprises up their sleeves for the fans that become loyal users of the product.”
Nitro Nation Stories will also allow users to change gears, shift lanes and use nitro boosts for real-life cars from the likes of BMW, Nissan and Jaguar to win the race. There will also be a multi-player mode where friends can race one another on the same device. A “Real Rewards” system will also be in place for players to earn in-game currencies and boosts, as well as signed paraphernelia, concert tickets, free trips and other Fetty-related prizes.
Moor Games’ other co-founder Keegan Carter adds, “This is an important project for entertainment, mobile gaming and actually tech overall. We thought Fetty had the right brand for a game and luckily he did as well.”
Zoo Wap joins a list of rappers with their own apps, like Meek Mill and his Bike Life game as well as Soulja Boy’s “SouljaWorld” app. He says that the game will give fans “another side” of Fetty. ”I had creative input in everything from the way my character looked to the type of cars we used,” he explains of working alongside Carter and Robinson, fellow New Jersey natives. ”We were all on the same page and I think that’s how we executed this game the right way.”
“I think my fans will be happy to interact with me another way. A lot of people only hear my music, but now they can play my game,” he continues. ”Mobile games are big now and I know a lot of my fans that listen to my music or attend my shows also play mobile games. It just makes sense.”
Fetty Wap: Nitro Nation Stories will speed into Apple and Google app stores on May 3 and will be available in 7-plus languages and free download. For more from Fetty’s new game, head to stories.nitronation.com.
