Following the announcement of a collaboration between Persona 5 and the mobile and PC survival horror game Identity V, it has been announced that the collaboration will begin on August 8, 2019.
Via the official Identity V Facebook page:
Identity V X Persona 5 crossover event will be officially launched in our manor on August 8th!
Remember don’t look down upon these students. You would never know how much power they actually have.
Detectives, are you ready to welcome these students to join the manor?
From August 8 to August 19, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts will infiltrate with a written challenge event. By participating in this event, you can obtain a limited Phantom Thief icon by searching for clues the Phantom Thieves have left behind in the manor and uncovering their identities. If you complete all of the tasks, you will earn an SSR Pet Morgana.
From August 8 to August 29, a treasure chest collaboration event with Persona 5 will take place, where players can earn costumes for each of the participating Persona 5 characters, for their student outfits and their Phantom Thief outfits.
An additional visual showing the Phantom Thief collaboration costumes released via Facebook:

Get ready for the showtime!
