BTS is no stranger to the world of video games. For those who are already obsessed over SuperStar BTS (a rhythm game that is identical to the likes of Beat Fever or Tap Tap Reborn), ARMYs will soon have a new game to add to their must-download list. Following their endless string of high-profile collaborations, Big Hit Entertainment has unveiled their latest project in development by web game publisher Netmarble, BTS World.
According to a report by Straits Times, BTS World is described as a “simulation game built around the idea of grooming the BTS bandmates into superstars”, with the users roleplaying as artist managers. And who knows, perhaps you’ll be so great at your virtual job that you’ll give Manager Sejin (BTS’ actual manager) a run for his money!
While not much details are known about the game specifics, it’s looking to be a large-scale project featuring more than 10,000 images and 100 videos of the BTS members.
An official Twitter has been set up in anticipation of its launch, which has since garnered over 170,000 followers as of Friday evening. It’s also worth noting that the account was opened back in April 2018, which means BTS World has been in the works for several months now!
That’s not all; Netmarble has previously announced its plans to develop more games for the K-pop band as part of its global expansion strategy, so fans have plenty to look forward to.
BTS World is slated for release in the first quarter of 2019.
