The Kardashian sisters stay busy—even the ones with the last name Jenner. Yesterday, SF-based Glu Mobile announced that Kendall and Kylie will release a game, just like their big sis. The app will feature the girls' voices, in addition to their likenesses, and will give players virtual access to the sisters as both friends and mentors. It sounds like the ultimate goal of the game is to work toward creative and career aspirations.
"Kendall and Kylie Jenner bring a tremendous amount of brand power and social impact to an audience largely untapped by the gaming industry," Glu CEO Niccolo de Masi says in an official statement. "We are pleased to partner with them over the 5-year contract term." This long-term partnership may possibly bring the sisters to San Francisco on a regular basis, considering that Kim visits Glu's SoMa headquarters regularly to check on her game.
Interestingly, Kendall and Kylie have announced their game ahead of brother-in-law Kanye West, despite his reference last month to his game in development. Keep an eye out around Glu for the girls' visits; we're curious to see how the Kardashian-West-Jenner clan dresses for tech-focused meetings.
