The mobile survival horror game Identity V (“Identity V: Fifth Personality” in Japan), developed by NetEase, will be having its first anniversary since its release in July 2018. To celebrate, NetEase has been holding in-game events, as well as “Japan Carnival 2019” live shows with special guests, which took place in June.
Part of this celebration is the upcoming announcement of a “mysterious collaboration project.” The final Japan Carnival 2019 event taking place on July 15th, in Tokyo, is where this collaboration will be unveiled.

The live stream for the Tokyo event where the Identity V collaboration will be formally announced will take place on July 15 at 1:30 PM JST (July 14 at 9:30 PM PDT / 12:30 AM EDT).
