Higurashi When They Cry

Some news.
Hello all, some days ago I sent an e-mail to MG to ask them some info about this release. Here is my mail[] and here there is the response[]. I thought maybe someone wants to know.

Basically, the game won't be out before 2014, and they are thinking on releasing each hen (chapter) as a stand-alone to make it more economic. Also, they are thinking about the Trading Cards System (that doesn't mean it's sure).

Well that doesn’t seem so bad as long as each chapter isn’t too expensive. Also might make it easier to get rights to the answer chapters to who knows! I just really want to play the game since I own and read all the manga.

The manga is a really good adaption, way better than the meh anime. If you like it you'll like the novel even more! It has a slower start though.

The anime was nice but your right it doesn’t really match up to the manga and I really like the fact that the illustrations are done by a different artist for each question and answer ark. Also a slower start is fine with me as long as it helps to flush out the charters more.

Good to hear. I'm not here to hate on the anime, you'll see what I mean when you'll finish the game! :)

I guess if they split it up, that screws up the chances of previous buyers getting steam keys :v

Split in chapters? I hope not. :-/
Sabrutin Nov 6, 2013 @ 1:18pm 
Why not? If the price is low... (and that's another matter though :/ )

Splitting the chapters with a low price might just get others to take the plunge. This game has my full support. I hope to see some trading cards. I'll collect them all.

Or if they do a season pass tthat would be better yet.

As long as they provide the choice to buy the whole package in a bundle, sure.

This. The best thing would be to offer both options: the bundle and the singular purchase.

I personally think releasing it episodic isn't a bad idea but I would like to have a season pass option as well. But that's just me

Hope they'll include trading cards; I'd love having Higurashi emoticons and profile background!
