The BTS Universe Story Game Is Out And Fans Have Turned BTS Into Iconic Memes

"#JIN: Her sister was a witch, right?"

On Thursday, a second BTS game was released — this time called BTS Universe Story. The game is only available on Android and the Apple app store. It's based on an ongoing storyline that has been told through music videos, books, performances, and songs since 2015.

Fans have been decoding and analyzing the hundreds of theories that have come out of the "universe" since then. Now, there is a game that will allow fans to immerse themselves in it.

It also comes with another function that allows players to create their own storylines using the BTS characters.

The app's creators intended for fans to create their own versions of the universe's story, but instead some fans have been re-creating memes and iconic moments from TV and the internet.

For example, the meteor/meatier meme got the game treatment and so did many others.


Within the game, you can not only dress members of BTS up, but you can also insert other characters to help with the plot of your story.

However, some fans noticed there were no Black characters available for free — you must purchase a "theme pack" within the game to access its one Black character. Many complained about it on social media.

Why couldn’t they make her free??? Why we gotta buy her?-)-):): 😢😢😭

After BuzzFeed News reached out to Netmarble on Friday for comment on this feature, the game was updated with several Black characters available for free.

On Monday in a statement a spokesperson for Netmarble told BuzzFeed News they "sincerely apologize for some limitations on free character options at launch."

They've said that they will be adding more characters to the game.

"In developing BTS Universe Story, it has always been our intention to provide a diverse set of options for our players to make their own creative expressions a reality for all to enjoy.

"We are honored to have such a passionate player community, and will continue striving to meet your expectations."

#BlackArmy will no longer have to pay to be Black! #BTSUniverseStory is officially adding 4 FREE Black female supporting characters following the scheduled update.
