As you write down the name of the next victim, a secret whisper fills your ears… On April 26, NetEase’s first 1v4 asymmetrical competition mobile game, Identity V, officially announced its upcoming crossover collaboration with super-popular anime Death Note and released an all-new crossover promo video to mark the occasion, whetting our appetites with a sneak peek at what we can expect to see when Death Note’s unforgettable characters and plot merge with the unique style of Identity V.
However, this may not be news to some players, as clues hinting at the impending crossover have been scattered throughout Identity V for some time now. After entering the game, sharp-eyed players can uncover special apples, which the detective character can interact with to trigger hidden dialog indicating the arrival of the new crossover. After these clues had been first discovered, a wave of speculation erupted among the player base, and now with this official announcement and promo video, their questions have finally been answered.
Get Ready! An Unparalleled Classic of Suspense Returns!
The classic anime Death Note, adapted from the manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, won the 2007 Tokyo Anime Award for Best TV Anime. The anime tells the story of Japanese high school student Light Yagami, who finds a notebook misplaced on Earth by a Shinigami. He soon realizes that whoever’s name he writes in this notebook will die. This discovery sparks a chain of events, where Light Yagami, aka “Kira” and the young detective “L” go head to head in a thrilling game of justice, glory, life, and death.
Having concluded many years ago, Death Note is not as popular as today’s hottest new anime series. However, this enduring classic remains a precious memory in the hearts of countless anime and manga fans, having made an immeasurable impact on these respective art forms.
When it comes to choosing crossover partners, Identity V is known for favoring quality over popularity, as well as the subtle connections between the two in terms of narratives, styles, and the atmosphere they create. In both Death Note and Identity V, the protagonists of these tales struggle against all odds, fighting through desperate situations time and again while resolutely pursuing their own ideals of justice and honor. The essence of these stories share these principles at their core, and this is why fans of both franchises can’t wait to see what this crossover has in store for them.
