Under the supervision of Ryukishi07, a Higurashi When They Cry murder mystery event will release in June. OZON will handle the production and release of the project.

Those interested in attending the Higurashi When They Cry ~ Resentment ~ murder mystery event can sign up for the event through the official website. The website includes a brief summary regarding the setting of the event and the characters that will be involved. The murder mystery will follow the premise of the first few episodes. The mystery itself centers around the disappearance and murder of a random individual during the Cotton Drifting festival.
A total of eight people can participate in the event, with a time limit of roughly 210 minutes. Attendees will need to work together to uncover the truth and solve the mystery of the Cotton Drifting festival. The event will be held in Osaka and Tokyo at select locations. This will be a Japan-exclusive event, as there is no indication the murder mystery event will make it overseas any time soon.
Higurashi When They Cry recently received a new animated adaptation. This new anime explored a new arc that the previous series had not.
