Glu Mobile, the mobile game publisher responsible for Kim Kardashian's smartphone game, has revealed plans for a Katy Perry game.
The game will take place in a "digital playground of global success and talent," suggesting that it will deal with fame and fortune within the context of the music industry. Players will be treated to Perry's "voice, likeness and personality" guiding them through this digital realm.
Perry's been very much in the public eye since her Super Bowl Halftime performance, which included a guest appearance from Missy Elliot, this past Sunday. Glu Mobile CEO Niccolo de Masi explains, "She is a cultural icon and we expect to translate key elements of her success into an innovative, highly entertaining mobile experience."
