MangaGamer announced that the 07th Expansion-developed visual novel Higurashi When They Cry Hou Ch.8 Matsuribayashi will launch on PC-via Steam and MangaGamer in the west on May 14, 2020.
I should mention that there might be spoilers for the previous entries in the summary of the game’s story. If this is a series that interests you, check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
Higurashi When They Cry Hou Ch.8 Matsuribayashi takes place in the village of Hinamizawa, in Japan. The town holds onto a secret, where every year “something” happens. For the past 4 years, someone has died, and someone else has gone missing. The missing reports seem to be connected to the local resistance against a now-abandoned dam construction project. The mystery follows authority cover-ups, conspiracy, murder, and maybe even a curse.
Higurashi When They Cry Hou Ch.8 Matsuribayashi is the final conclusion and wraps up the story for Rika, Keiichi, and the rest of the group. This presents their last chance to break free of the cycle around them. Each of the chapters leads here and bring all of the fragments needed to reach the ideal Hinamizawa.
