The game will introduce a custom game mode and exclusive in-game items inspired by the group, including Legendary hero skins. These items are slated for release on November 1, 2023.
LE SSERAFIM to drop new song
Additionally, fans of the group can look forward to their latest single, Perfect Night, dropping on October 27 at 1PM KST. The song will be an integral part of the in-game experience.
