WoW Patch Adds Katy Perry's Super Bowl Left Shark

Wield the power of Left Shark as a companion.


The infamous Left Shark from Katy Perry's Super Bowl halftime show is set to be immortalized in World of Warcraft, thanks to its latest patch.

Alongside exciting additions like a new zone, raid, and ship-building feature, Blizzard has also slipped a new item into WoW's 6.2.0 patch. Although it's unclear where it's located, tracking down the Left Shark item will allow you to summon it as a companion, according to a Wowhead listing.

Unfortunately, there aren't any images or further details on its in-game form, although those are bound to surface before long. Select content from the 6.2.0 update is currently available on WoW's Public Test Realms.

If you missed Perry's Super Bowl performance--or somehow avoided the ensuing Internet ruckus--Left Shark rose to prominence due to a less-than-first-rate dancing routine. This quickly became a meme that Perry has since capitalized on by selling Left Shark-themed merchandise and attempting to trademark the name and its design.
