Recording star Katy Perry will be releasing her own smartphone game later this year. Yup, you read that right. Glu Mobile, the San Francisco-based company who developed the Kim K game, has revealed that it will be collaborating Katy Perry in bringing the megastar singer's first ever game to mobile devices.
Katy Perry is one of the most popular recording artists today, not to mention a cultural and fashion icon in her own right. Glu Mobile will definitely be banking on Katy Perry's image and branding in developing the game. Although as of this writing, no details have emerged yet as to how the game will be played.
Some industry watchers expect the upcoming Katy Perry game to be quite similar to Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. In that game, players were given the opportunity to create their own customized game characters, and then go through several challenges, like going out on a date or cause some trending on the Twitterverse, in order to achieve megastar fame and increase their social status.
It has not been confirmed yet, but many expect the Katy Perry game to be freely downloadable, of course with lots of opportunities for in-app purchases. If Glu Mobile patterns the Katy Perry game after the Kardashian template, players will most likely create their own pop star personas, even going through a similar career arc as Katy Perry's own incredible success story. Whether it involves kissing a girl and liking it remains to be seen for now.
If the game does revolve around Katy Perry's real life events, how much of the singer's personal life will be incorporated in the game? For all her recording success, Katy Perry has had a very colorful life outside the music business. Still, if it's a hit with her fans, why not? Although one must wonder if he or she would like to date or even marry Russell Brand, even though it is done through their game personas only.
Because Katy Perry is a worldwide celebrity, Glu Mobile will likely launch the game as widely as possible. Thus, it will not be much of a surprise if the Katy Perry game debuts on both iOS and Android platforms.
For now, the only information about the release date is it will be available on smartphones and tablets sometime in late 2015. For the meantime, we will just have to wait and wonder if Left Shark will make an appearance in the game.
