Umineko no Naku Koro ni will be released this Summer Comiket

From the creator of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, comes another mystery thriller visual named Umineko no Naku Koro ni (how original). 07th Expansion planned to release the game for this Summer Comiket (August 17th) however pre-order has begun since July 17th. After playing all the Higurashi games and Higurashi Matsuri, Umineko managed to attract my curiosity to know more about this game. And from all the info that has been released so far, I think it has potential to be as popular as its predecessor. There’s still no info whether Umineko will be divided into parts like Higurashi or not.

Umineko takes place in 1986 (3 years after Higurashi). On October 4th, the family members of the wealthy Ushiromiya family gathers on their private island of Rokken-Jima. Since the head family of Ushiromiya family is sick and on the brink of death, they’re planning to discuss how to distribute the wealth to all the family members. Unfortunately, a storm takes place during the gathering and the 18 family members are all trapped on the island. One by one the family members are murdered and one thing for certain is the killer is among them. Who will survive this terror?

Cover design. Yes, the hand clubs return!

The story is more typical of detective story this time.
