Whether it’s on stage or behind the scenes, BTS goes above and beyond to entertain ARMY. Their new game, BTS Island: In the Seom, is no exception.
BTS was much more hands-on with their new games than they have been with past games, including BTS Universe Story and BTS World. From designing the characters to deciding on the gameplay, the members took part in every step of the process.
Eagle-eyed fans will spot iconic BTS jokes, memorable outfits, and symbols (such as the “Whalien 52” whale) in the game.
Each BTS member designed a fun Easter egg for players to find. RM drew one of his favorite creatures, crabs, and what could be either chicks or ducks. A reference to Ducktan, perhaps?
Jin drew “treasure,” writing, “It’s expensive outside but has no use here.” This jewel resembles the ones from Jin’s BE concept photos.
Suga‘s contribution is the whale often seen in BTS’s work, including “We Are Bulletproof: The Eternal” MV and “Heartbeat” MV.
As for J-Hope, he drew a “heart balloon” that calls to mind the purple balloons from BTS’s “Permission to Dance” MV.
Jimin drew a “brush” that artist-ARMYs will surely appreciate, and a “paper plane.” A paper airplane appears in BTS’s “Spring Day” MV.
V‘s drawing is much more mysterious than the others. It’s unclear exactly what this adorable creature is, but some fans believe it could be a snail with wings.
Jungkook‘s “rock of question” harkens back to the time-traveling Run BTS episodes where BTS had to track down the stolen “ARMY Stone.”
Pre-registration for BTS Island: In the Seom began on April 26. According to Apple App store data, the game will be released on the platform on June 28.
