The ‘Side to Side’ and ‘Into You’ pop singer is the latest celeb to feature as a video game character which is based on her own persona.
Ariana Grande herself announced the news via Instagram that she will make a guest appearance in Square Enix’s free-to-play, turn-based Final Fantasy mobile game, Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius.
The character is based on her black latex rabbit-eared look as seen on her latest album, Dangerous Woman, and in the acapella music video for the song.
Grande also shared a sneak peek at her character’s sprite in motion:

Regarding her character, whose name is DW, Grande said, ‘It's the cutest thing I've ever seen in my entire life and I'm so excited and in love with it I cannot contain myself.’ The character will be able to sing and cast spells in the RPG.
Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius is available on Android and iOS. The RPG includes a new cast of characters and familiar Final Fantasy elements, including limit breaks and summons. It will be available through iTunes and Google play.
