It suggests that everyone is familiar with the game and played it before. Jisoo also mentioned she owned “all those floral crowns.” English subtitles are available if closed captions are turned on.
The official site doesn’t offer any additional details about what could come. However, it did note a schedule for additional videos. The teaser is available immediately. On December 8, 2022, a first episode for the Blackpink MapleStory event will appear. The second episode will show up on December 13, 2022.
Blackpink’s appeared in games before, and not just their songs in rhythm games like the Taiko no Tatsujin arcade version or Just Dance. The group held an in-game concert in PUBG earlier in 2022. In 2021, cosmetics connected to the singers also showed up in the battle royale.
