Videos, screenshots, gameplay.

Not Ryukishi art but I am hoping this turns out as awesome as it can possibly be.

- PS3 Exclusive.
- 16th December release for 8379 Yen.
- Full HD support.
- Full voice - cast is mostly the same as the anime.
- Uses the sound novel's BGM.
- New opening song.
- Art is completely redone.

So hyped.

Renall 2010-09-13 22:52

Well that art is certainly... improved.

Beatrice and Maria just don't look right when crazyfacing though.

Dlanor .A. Nox 2010-09-13 23:07

So is that the new Alchemist PROJECT? From what I'm seeing it's a retelling of the first four episodes...the lack of any characters past episode 4 is a HINT. Of course this is just pure speculation on my PART.

Tamad 2010-09-13 23:08

Gah, I'm glad and not glad that's it's for PS3, because I'll certainly be tempted to purchase it thanks to it being on a region-free system. The only problem with this is that I won't actually be able to read it, but knowing the Umineko story like the back of my hand will help a bit, I suppose.

Rest in peace, my wallet.

*dashes in* You know, I am way too busy and poor to be hyping over anything really, but...DO WANT! Maybe I can slip this into my Christmas list...

I will always be a fan of the classic art over the alchemist art. It's just not a Ryukishi game without it. Even with the ham hands in Higurashi.

IIRC Alchemist did do all of the arcs in Higurashi though and and added some original ones of their own so I don't think that would be a hint that they're only doing 1-4. Just that they haven't done the core arcs art yet.

EDIT: I'd expect that they won't do that art for awhile though since the core arcs aren't yet finished.

Dlanor .A. Nox 2010-09-13 23:18

I know THAT. I'm just saying what I see so far, who knows what'll pop up NEXT. I will admit, I do enjoy Ryuukishi's art alot more than what I am SEEING. If Alchemist does do some original arcs it would probably answer questions Ryuukishi refuses to answer with his WORKS.

Judoh 2010-09-13 23:18

Sorry I have a bad habit of reading between the lines. It's nothing personal.

Dlanor .A. Nox 2010-09-13 23:20

Think nothing of IT. I'll admit that I'd like to see Alchemist's take on my NAMESAKE.

Shiro Kaisen 2010-09-13 23:21

Details from the conference

Remake of Umineko 1-4 for PS3
1920 x 1080 native resolution
New art, etc.
BGM is untouched
VOICES ARE ****ING CONFIRMED

The Alchemist portraits we've been seeing are...

COMPLETELY UNRELATED TO UMINEKO.


They're for an erogame called Gal Gun where you shoot girls with something and they make erotic noises. And other such minigames. As best I can tell, I sort of skipped around the video to see if there was any reason for it to be Umineko-tied.

Rias 2010-09-13 23:30

8370 yen for only first 4 episodes? Well I'll probably still get it. :heh:

Judoh 2010-09-13 23:39

Did I hear right!? I'm pretty sure they said in the video they were announcing Higurashi no Naku Koru ni for the Nintendo DS 7 minutes 40 seconds in! Or something like that...

WHYYYY. I don't have the money right now to buy a PS3. BUT I WANT THIS SO BAD. I will find a way. Somehow.

Dlanor .A. Nox 2010-09-13 23:45

They already did a few original arcs on the DS BEFORE. So it's not hard to imagine that they would do it AGAIN.

Renall 2010-09-13 23:55

Is it me, or is this artist kind of bad at drawing hands too, but in a different way from ryukishi?

Look at the perspective in shots where people have their hands extended in directions that aren't side to side. They're all messed up and off.

einhorn303 2010-09-14 00:05

I don't see any reason to play this new version. The new arts tyle lacks all the charm of the previous. And just as two random sticking points:
1. You have to admit that this looks totally stupid.
2. Where's fat George?!

I also don't think image CGs for gore make it more powerful. Instead, they make it less powerful. It's far more impacting to simply describe the scene and let the reader's imagination create the picture.

Used Can 2010-09-14 00:06

Holy fuck... that Galgun game. Must haev!

Anyway, the PS3 port looks amazing. I'm definitely buying it.

This is my only complaint, though. George ought to be FAT.

OgodItsKanon 2010-09-14 00:13

Can't read Japanese, have no money for the PS3 OR the visual novel itself... (God, 90 bucks for a game?)

Yeah, Youtube is my only hope. T T

Now that you mention it I sort of agree, but I think this artists main problem was with drawing the fingers in some shots. The proportions look sort of off to me, but it's not something obvious enough that a lot of people would have a problem with it.

In comparison to Battler's skinny hour glass figure in the alchemist art George is pretty damn chubby. I actually don't have a problem with how they drew George in this art style surprisingly.

Strangely enough I absolutely hate the art they have for Eva, Jessica, and Hideyoshi. They look, like they were trying too hard to make them look realistic. Whereas they did a good job of making George look cool with his foggy glasses sprites to me. And it looks like they represented his personality well with the art. That's just my opinion tho.

EDIT: Oh and Krauss looks AWESOME in the alchemist art for some reason. He just looks so badass with his hand in his pocket like that and I don't even think that was supposed to be intentional. Natsuhi's art is just sort of meh...
