Kim has previously invested in clothing stores, jewelry and cosmetics but her latest venture of video game is seen as her most successful one ever. The mommy to North West is quite excited about the success of the game too.
"This project has been an amazing experience. I'm so excited that people are enjoying the game!," the reality star revealed to Kim told E! News further dishing out statistical details of the game.
