Higurashi en français

French-language Higurashi fans may want to check out Tout d'Asie, which has copies of Version française du jeu higurashi no naku koro ni, renommé Le sanglot des cigales. This release contains Onikakushi, Watanagashi, and two mini-games, and comes on CD-ROM.

The game runs on PONScripter, which Uncle Mion maintains over at her ONScripter Corner. Speaking of which, there should be a more general PONScripter-based release of the Higurashi demo sometime in the near future (once Uncle gets it whipped into shape).

Joyeux Noël guys!


Update (March 22 2010):
We've added a link to the French version's official website, Le sanglot de cigales.

MangaGamer announces release date for 'Higurashi: When They Cry'

Howdy folks, just saw this news today from MangaGamer:

“The release date for the upcoming game, "Higurashi when they cry" has been decided to December 15, 2009. This release will be the first 4 chapters of the original smash hit game made by 07th Expansion and will be sold for 36.95 Euros.”
You can read more about the release, as well as about a contest [note: contest over as of Dec.15] to win a copy of the game, in this article at Anime News Network.

Just so you know, we're still working on our patches of Higurashi, but we'll be waiting until next year to do a release of further material out of professional courtesy.
