Mobile game developer Glu Mobile Inc said it would partner with top-selling singer Katy Perry to develop a new mobile game, which will include the Firework singer's voice and likeness.

The company, known for its popular Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game, said it expects to release the game in the fourth quarter.

Glu also reported a 78 per cent jump in fourth-quarter adjusted revenue.

Katy Perry, who hosted the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, is known for hit singles such as Teenage Dream, ET and Roar.

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is a free-to-download mobile game where the user can create a celebrity avatar and interact with celebrities in a virtual world filled with parties, paparazzi and luxury homes.

The top-grossing game, which was released in June last year, accounted for about a third of Glu's adjusted revenue for 2014.

Adjusted revenue rose to US$76.2 million (S$103 million), beating the average analyst estimate of US$63.8 million.

The company reported a profit of US$0.11 per share, excluding items, for the quarter ended Dec 31. This trumped the average analyst estimate of US$0.02 per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
