Back in April 2015, Glu Games Inc. revealed that a Britney Spears mobile game was in the works. Diehard Brit Brit fan and devoted Kim Kardashian: Hollywood player that I am, my heart wasted no time in making room for this to-be-released game. I was ready and raring to get my phalanges on that app. An entire calendar year has passed since that news item broke, and I'm still ready. And raring. And waiting. When will the developer behind the runaway success that was Kim Kardashian: Hollywood finally unleash what is sure to be my new favorite app? When will the Britney Spears mobile game be out? According to the pop deity, Britney Spears: American Dream is "coming soon." Yesssss! *Breaks into "Stronger" music video chair routine out of joy.*
On Monday, the “Oops!… I Did It Again” icon posted a photo of her game avatar to let the Britney Army know that the app will be out in the near future. The official release date has yet to be announced, but according to E! News, the game is currently in soft launch in New Zealand and was previewed on Google Play today. We're so close, y'all.
