Visual Novel Series “When They Cry” Resumes in 2017

Developer 07th Expansion revealed on Twitter that its visual novel series, When They Cry, will continue in 2017. However, it’ll be “something completely different” from Higurashi and Umineko When They Cry. Here’s what the tweet reads (translation courtesy of Siliconera):

I’ve heard from the staff that there were Umineko cosplayers at Comiket yesterday… and I want to say that I am truly grateful to see you wearing costumes of my work, in the midst of this cold weather.

The next of the When They Cry series is expected to commence in 2017. We intend to make it into something completely different from Higurashi and Umineko! Have a happy New Year! (Ryukishi07)

Although Higurashi When They Cry has released for PlayStation platforms in the past, it is only the PC version that was localized and made available in the West.

We’ll update our readers when we have more info.
