@danpmss Why not? I've read Umineko, and I understood everything (it's not that hard to understand after episode 7)
danpmss Jan 22 @ 10:12am 
People here wouldn't even have patience enough to read Umineko :/
Hell, I don't think most of people in here would even understand the story xD

The voice acting for the ps2 version was done by Alchemist, an entirely separate company to Mangagamer. Mangagamer doesn't have rights to Alchemist's stuff, so it's not being put into the game. I would say it's highly unlikely that you'll be able to find a voice patch, due to the amount of effort required to port the ps2 voice acting over to the PC version (as it would have to be done by fans) but I know that the fan group "When They Translate" managed to do the first arc, so there's still a possibility that someone could do the rest.
Froltxa Dec 6, 2014 @ 2:54pm 
It seems like this version won't have voice actors.... anyone knows, if we'll be able to download a voice patch after steam released the game? I think the ps2 version had voices, but I'm not so sure...

For those of you who have not noticed it yet there is in fact a store page (though you can't actually buy the game yet it's good to know it exists) here is a link: http://store.steampowered.com/app/310360/?snr=1_7_7_comingsoon_150_4

i hope they add a trade card and some backgroud's for steam profile

MangaGamer said, they wanted to release higurashi in 2014, so I guess it'll be released in december or january.
Chaos_Alfa Nov 16, 2014 @ 2:26pm 
@Magusverborum, I hope they will announce a release date at the AniMaine convention which will be held on November 21st, it seems MangaGamer has a panel there.

I must admit, when they said they'd be hoping to releasing the first chapter before the end of the year, I didn't think that they were actually going to release around the end of the year... it's been over a year since this was greenlit, I understand they're doing the engine port and art and such, but I really wish they would give us something other than a few previews of character art. A trailer maybe? I dunno, I'm also hungover right now, I want my Higurashi fix already I've been waiting so damn long.

WHERE IS THE HIGURASHI MANGAGAMER

YOU SAID THERE WOULD BE HIGURASHI
The Dark Slayer #⑥⑨ Nov 12, 2014 @ 1:40pm 
Can't wait for this! Will there be achivements/trading cards?! I hope so
YurDen Nov 7, 2014 @ 11:45pm 
Если выпустят на русском то я КУПЛЮ!!
Froltxa Nov 7, 2014 @ 6:06am 
Can't wait anymore, I need something to read while waiting for the next Umineko Manga :(
Chaos_Alfa Nov 5, 2014 @ 5:01am 
@АdамСТН22Ч1, no, there won't. Alchemist's assets where too expensive to license that is why MangaGamer chose the cheaper option of commissioning totally new sprites to be made. You can see some examples of the new sprites in the "Updated Sprites Announced" thread.
Strange Person Nov 4, 2014 @ 5:30am 
Will there be the version made by Alchemist? I hope so.
LSDShakes Nov 4, 2014 @ 3:09am 
2spooky4me but i love the show
Chaos_Alfa Nov 2, 2014 @ 11:02am 
@Froltxa, nothing about those two things have been revealed as of this comment. We will have to wait a bit longer to get some answers.
Froltxa Nov 2, 2014 @ 9:13am 
Will there be some kind of season pass, and does anyone know how much each episode will cost?
Robo Jackson Nov 1, 2014 @ 11:55am

This game is taking forever to release.
Chaos_Alfa Oct 28, 2014 @ 3:02pm 
@Bargon404,
It seems they are currently busy with inserting the script. After that only beta testing is left. I don't think we will have to wait much longer.
Bargon404 Oct 28, 2014 @ 2:26am 
First chapter fucking when? I have got money to spend
{G.A.S} Some Duck Oct 25, 2014 @ 11:32pm

@Irina Shido
Poorly made, HAHAHAHAHA! Even if they werent updating the sprites the originals are great but guess what they are updating them.
Go watch crappy High School DxD
Chaos_Alfa Oct 19, 2014 @ 9:20am 
Irina Shido@
If you don't like the original art you could just use the other sprite set which this version of the visual novel offers.

Yous would pay for such a poorly made game look at how terrible the characters look
Chaos_Alfa Oct 14, 2014 @ 2:54am 
@Froltxa,
No release date has been announced, but they seem to be aiming to release the Onikakushi arc this year.

I can't wait to play this again!
Chaos_Alfa Oct 6, 2014 @ 1:47pm 
@ᶠʸʳᵉ Eefi,
Nothing has been decided yet, but they seem to be open for it if Higurashi sells well enough on Steam.

Soo.. With this being greenlit; will Umineko get a release as well? (See beatrice avatar, haha <3 Beato!)
Chaos_Alfa Sep 22, 2014 @ 11:44am 
@DJ Szatan ,
This release won't get voice acting. The PC never had voice acting and licensing the art and/or voices from the company which produced the PS2 version of Higurashi was too expensive.
DJ Szatan Sep 22, 2014 @ 10:00am 
Will this release get voice acting?
