Identity V will soon host crossover event with Japanese anime The Promised Neverland
NetEase Games’ popular 1v4 asymmetric survivor horror game Identity V has announced a crossover with Japanese anime, The Promised Neverland. Today they released a trailer to get people excited about the impending collaboration.
The trailer, which you can see in the embedded video below, shows Emma and Gardner in distress as they make their way to a mysterious door with light streaming through it, promising hope. But is that really what’s inside?
The trailer also shows a hydra motif at the end. The main protagonist of The Promised Neverland, Emma, is well versed in Morse code, so it looks like part of this crossover event will involve decoding this pattern.
If you are not familiar, The Promised Neverland is an adaptation of a popular manga written by Kaiu Shirai and illustrated by Posuka Demizu. It is a relatively new series with the first season airing in January 2019 and the second scheduled for January 2021.
It tells the story of 38 children and their independent babysitter “Mom” who all live together in a place called Grace Field House. Although it appears to be a happy place on the surface, it is actually a purgatory where children will be sacrificed to demons once they reach the age of twelve and have “left” the house. .
Once the children discovered this terrible truth, they embarked on a mission to escape for real. The crossover event will piece this back together, but with Identity V’s main character trying to escape at different times and spaces. We can expect a variety of crossover items and costumes when the collaboration arrives.
Identity V is now available on the App Store and Google Play. It’s a free game with in-app purchases.
