Katy Perry joins PC game Sims

2012-01-18 20:10

Los Angeles - Katy Perry has been turned into a computer game character.

The One That Got Away singer - who recently split from husband Russell Brand - will appear in new PC game, The Sims 3 Showtime, which will be released in March.

Fans will be able to play as Katy in their games and obtain Katy Perry-themed goodies in the latest offering from the strategic life-simulation video game.

Katy - who will also front the global advertising campaign - said: "I love how you're able to play out different stories through your Sims characters - giving them different careers and watching them succeed. It's cool to see the Sims' stage performances in The Sims 3 Showtime decked out just like my California Dreams Tour - even my cotton candy video screens are in there! I always like to think of myself as a cartoon, and now I'm a Sim!"

Katy will work closely with The Sims Studio to create accessories, clothing, hairstyles, furniture and props so players can get to be the real Katy.
