Ah, Final Fantasy, the beloved video-game franchise that has spawned 15 installments (read our review of FFXV here), multiple movie and TV spin-offs and even a novel or two. Who could forget fan-favorite characters like Cid, Tidus or… Ariana Grande?
It’s true, as unlikely as it might seem. The former Sam & Cat star-turned-world-class diva will appear as herself in the next update of mobile game Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius, dressed in a variation on her leather bunny costume from her Dangerous Woman album, as revealed by the woman herself on Instagram.

Across two images—one of which featured Grande checking out the game, surrounded by executives from Final Fantasy publisher Square Enix, with the caption, “pretty lil thing holds her own in a room of men in suits ♡"—Grande shared both the news, and her excitement about the announcement.
You can already download Brave Exvius, which was released as a free-to-play download for iOS and Android last June, following a 2015 release in Japan. No date for Grande’s addition has been announced, however.
