YG Entertainment, the agency of Big Bang, has entered into a joint enterprise with game developer Hanbit Soft to create the game where characters will be sporting the same outfits that are worn by the real-life stars.
Audition was originally released in South Korea back in 2004, with mobile versions for the PSP and mobile phones making their debut as early as 2007. It was not stated whether the Big Bang-starringAudition will be available on both platforms.
Aside from the visual appeal of seeing Big Bang come to life as videogame characters in their most iconic fashion, the game will also feature their songs, images and videos.
The game is expected to come out in the latter half of 2015 and will be released overseas, adds KpopHerald.
So far, the popular boy group is the only one confirmed to be starring in the videogame as characters, although YG Entertainment is home to other popular artists such as 2NE1, Psy, Epik High, Lee Hi and Akdong Musician.
The Audition game is likely part of the massive promotions blitz planned for Big Bang in the coming months as the group prepares for their long-awaited comeback.
Big Bang has already released the titles for their two comeback songs — “Loser” and “Bae Bae” — both of which will drop on May 1. The songs are part of their new Made album which will be released on September 1.
