NetEase showed off a new promotional video for the Identity V x Detective Conan (Case Closed) crossover that will go live soon. This collaboration was originally exclusive to the China server. However, NetEase announced back in July 2021 that the global servers (NA/EU and Asia) would get this event as well. As a nod to the series, a familiar song appears.
What hidden conspiracies can you find hidden within the misty depths of the manor?
The truth about these survivors will be revealed very soon!

The trailer shows off the characters who will appear in the first batch of the crossover. It also features the classic theme song for Detective Conan, which has remained relatively unchanged since 1996. The Detective Conan characters you can get in the first round are:
- Conan Edogawa: Orpheus
- Shinichi Kudo: Orpheus
- Ran Mouri: Coordinator
- Kogoro Mouri: Lawyer
- Ai Haibara: Perfumer
- Heiji Hattori: Forward
When the global server gets the second round, we will see characters such as Kaito Kid and Shuichi Akai. There is still no concrete date as of yet for the Detective Conan crossover in Identity V.
However, after maintenance on October 14, 2021, NetEase will implement S18 Essence 2, which includes the Wax Artist. Those who pull his S-Tier skin from the gacha can get the character for free. Other characters who will receive skins in S18 Essence 2 are Barmaid and Coordinator.
Identity V is readily available on mobile devices and Windows PC globally. Detective Conan, though not all of the episodes, are on streaming services such as Crunchyroll and Netflix. The IDV x Detective Conan crossover will go live sometime in Fall 2021. If Essence 2 will feature the Wax Artist, then it most likely will arrive for Essence 3. Currently, players can still pull from both The Promised Neverland crossover Essences.
