Shania Twain will feature within mobile game Home Street, following a deal between the Canadian country pop star, London based games firm Supersolid, and Universal Music Group Nashville. The announcement coincides with the launch of Twain’s new studio album Now, which topped the album charts in the US, Canada, UK and Australia upon release last month.
Home Street is described as a home decoration and character simulation game, and launched in October on Apple and Android mobile platforms. Two music videos from Now will play on a special billboard within the title, and themed in-game items will be available for purchase. Twain will also participate in an in-game Q&A during November.
