BTS World set to debut on iOS and Android on June 26

Spend time with the members of your favorite K-pop boy band on the go starting tomorrow.


Fans of the mega-popular Korean boy band BTS can look forward to becoming the group's managers when the new mobile title BTS World debuts tomorrow on June 26.

The sim game from Netmarble will feature over 10,000 new exclusive photos of the band as well as 100 exclusive video clips, which players will see when they're presented with a variety of phone calls, video messages, and texts as they strive to help the band achieve their debut - before the fame. Fans will get to guide them and mold their favorite members of the group as they work their way up to stardom again.

You'll be able to play through the game as members of the band pursue different career paths, make special choices that allow you to go down special branching narrative paths, and even style the band to choose what looks each member will wear. You can even pick out what they'll be allowed to eat and do in terms of business, since it's your job to ensure they become the superstars they are in the real world.

And yes, if you're purely into BTS for the music, the game will feature a slew of new music made just for the game, with one tune "Dream Glow" featuring pop star Charli XCX. 

The game was originally slated to arrive today on June 25, but it appears it's been pushed back one day, so if you're excited to get into the game and become a newly-minted BTS manager, you've only got a little longer to wait. Are you going to be playing along with the Bangtan Boys? Let us know in the comments below.
