SEOUL, June 5 (Yonhap) -- Netmarble Games, a South Korean mobile game developer and publisher, said Wednesday that its new, highly anticipated mobile game inspired by K-pop boy band sensation BTS will be launched later this month.

"BTS World," a simulation game built around the idea of grooming BTS members to become global superstars, will be released worldwide, excluding China, for Google's Android and Apple's iOS devices on June 26, Netmarble said in a press release.

Netmarble, also the second-biggest shareholder of BTS' music label, Big Hit Entertainment, said users will play the role of the manager in charge of nurturing BTS members.

Players will be given numerous missions, selecting a BTS member to complete the mission and progress through the game, officials said.

The game will come with 10,000 new images and 100 video clips of BTS, the company said.

After the game's official launch, BTS is planning to use the platform to release a new song, including the game's new theme, sung by Jin, Jimin and Jungkook of BTS.

Netmarble, established in 2000, has produced some of the most successful mobile and online games, including mega-hit title "Lineage 2: Revolution," "MARVEL Future Fight" and "Seven Knights."
