Studio OZON announced that a Higurashi When They Cry and Umineko When They Cry murder mystery board game is currently in production. However, details about the project are scarce. More updates about the upcoming board game will be disclosed through the Studio OZON Twitter. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
The board game will be produced by Joldeeno. Higurashi When They Cry and Umineko When They Cry series creator Ryukishi07 will help oversee the production of the project. The Higurashi When They Cry and Umineko When They Cry murder mystery board game will task players with uncovering the truth behind fictional murder cases.
A new Higurashi anime released in late 2020. The latest Higurashi When They Cry series is less of a remake of the original animated series that debuted in 2006 and instead is another storyline that explores an alternate timeline.
In October 2020, Square Enix made the first eight episodes of Umineko When They Cry available to read entirely for free. However, this offer was only available for a limited time.
Higurashi When they Cry Hou is immediately available for PCs worldwide. It is also available on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in Japan. Umineko no Naku Koro ni originally released for PC in Japan in 2007. A worldwide release followed in 2016.
