Mobile Game “BTS World” Sets To Transform Fans Into Their Favourite Group’s Managers With Global Launch
ARMYs, are you ready to take on the challenge of becoming your favourite idols’ manager through BTS World?
Netmarble has finally announced the official global launch date of their much-anticipated interactive mobile game featuring the boys of BTS.
The gaming company, in conjunction with the global superstars themselves, will take the participation of ARMYs in BTS’ journey as a group on a whole new level through their new mobile game, set to be officially launched on June 26 KST.
Titled BTS World, the collaboration is a story-based mobile simulation game, which brings fans together with the members of BTS on an interactive journey. With the challenge of catapulting the group into the same international pop stardom they enjoy now, the game will let fans play the role of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook’s managers starting from their pre-debut days.
Fans who take part in the game will encounter various missions, where they can pick certain BTS member cards to clear missions and make their progress for the game. Collecting and upgrading these cards will unlock even more stories along the way, bringing a longer journey for fans as the group’s managers. Additionally, players will be able to interact virtually with BTS in the game through a 1:1 interactive system. The game will also reveal an all-new, original soundtrack from BTS as part of its official launch’s countdown.
Currently, Netmarble confirmed that it will start with a sub-unit song from members Jin, Jimin, and Jungkook set to be revealed soon. A teaser clip for it has been shared by the company as well, further exciting fans for its upcoming release.
Pre-registration for BTS World was opened to fans on May 9 this year, bringing the first look into the interactive game before its full launch. Users who pre-registered got to view an introduction of the game, together with a story from BTS and a special sneak peek of the game’s mobile function.
Additionally, fans were able to play through a mini-game, which paired them with the group member they matched best as a manager as determined by a short series of questions.
