The youngest K’s of the Jenner/Kardashian clan have been following in their sisters’ footsteps and are now launching their own mobile game, thanks to the success of their characters on sister Kim’s massively popular “Hollywood” app.
Kylie and Kendall Jenner, half-sisters of Kim Kardashian, announced today that a standalone mobile game on publishing platform Glu will soon be launching featuring the two girls.
Players will be able to friend Kylie and Kendall within the game, and work towards their career goals together.
The game will even feature the girls’ voices.
Both Jenner girls have risen to fame on their own after getting their start as young kids on the family’s wildly popular show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and its subsequent spinoffs featuring two or more of the Kardashian sisters.
The game is said to be released in late 2015.
Here is the full press release for the game:
