So, here is everything you need to know about the upcoming BTS x Cookie Run: Kingdom collaboration.

“Braver Together” is the name of the upcoming BTS collaboration with Cookie Run: Kingdom. Before the announcement, a teaser trailer was released and hints of the collaboration were found in-game.

The Cookie Run community is about celebrating diversity and supporting each other in choosing to be who you are. We knew how well our core values aligned with those of BTS, so welcoming BTS and ARMY into the Cookie Run Universe felt like a natural fit.

ARMY is a unique group of fans who sincerely love BTS because of the band’s authenticity, and messaging of self-love, social justice, and mental health awareness. Their music talks about self-love and inspires me to be proud of my identity. Also, even with BTS’ ‘idol’ status, they reinforce that everyone is an idol by just being themselves.

So far, the in-game appearance of each of the members has not yet been revealed. Also, it wasn’t confirmed if each of the members will be providing their voices for the game, or if it will be done by voice actors. A release date for the collaboration has not yet been announced, but we’re certainly on the edge of our seats in anticipation.
