The BT21 x Tamagotchi eggs will come in two versions—Space Color in blue and BT21 BABY in yellow.
The game will let users feed their BT21 characters milk, burgers, candy, or doughnuts as well as play mini games like dancing, making sweets, flying through outer space, and taking photos.
The keychain-sized game will be available for 2,530 yen (approx. PHP 1,111) in late September 2021. Order the BT21 Tamagotchi from Bandai Japan here.

The 'Life Goes On' act are also set to release a rhythm and action mobile game tentatively called BTS Dream, featuring TinyTan characters, via Netmarble this year. They previously collaborated with Nexon on the multi-player online video game MapleStory, where they released limited edition items, including ARMY bomb and 'Black Swan' sets.
BTS are slated to release their second English single 'Butter' this Friday (05/21).
