To add it with 400MB more, I can only hope for some surprise


and for comparison

Higurashi didn't grow so much from Minagoroshi-hen to Matsuribayashi-hen and it has much more text
System requirements aren't really a good indicator of the amount of contents on one disk. All of my Higurashi disks had 500MB of disk space as requirement, regardless of it being a 1-chapter only disk (Meakashi-hen disk) or a 4-chapter disk (Matsuribayashi-hen disk). Even my Rei disk had the same requirement.

I would guess that the DVD-ROM format for EP2 is because Ryukishi07 finally broke the 650-700MB data limit offered by one CD (since he did mention there will be a collection of new musics for EP2), and the 1GB space requirement is just there as a precaution.

There's also a Traslation patch that's in the works...

Though for some reason I think the editing is going to take some time

no offense Ace

Japanese text capability can be easily done on English Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. Since I don't use English Windows I can't help you here, but if you search around you'll find how to do.

And you've explained half of the reason why I don't prefer macs! wwww

Actually, it's the other way around. To use Japanese text in English windows, you need to download some extra files off of the startup CD. In Mac, you can read it by default and write it after a few clicks in the system preferences. And Mac has Boot Camp.

But here's the problem, I don't know have the disc that supplies the japanese texts which i need for both the PC and the MAC for the use of Boot Camp.

Unless there's another way to get around this... ideas anyone?

I wish I could read Japanese so I would know what's going on in the game. Still from what I've read in this thread so far it seems to be pretty interesting. Though I guess I'm gonna have to wait for an anime version or something to really get the gist of what goes on in the story since the thread and wikipedia is pretty vague and all.

You mean that new Nakanai series? For some reason, it didn't feel as fitting to me as the Higurashi series did. ^^; Maybe because Umineko doesn't have that developed sense of tragedy and epic-ness for me yet. Although the song is, as usual, a big hit with me.

Anyway, as long as it's not an event-only item (that is, if there are plans for in-store placements as well), you will most likely still be able to get it through stores like Paletweb or even Himeya. Even if the item is not listed, all you have to do is send them a request mail (Paletweb) or make a custom order (Himeya) and they'll get your item for you. It's not really practical for them to list doujin goods since most go out of print fast (+ few ever sell, if at all), that's why you'll only ever see the most popular goods listed.

So, I have read this thread and understood what happened on part c(at least sorta of...).

Sterling01 said in one post that basically everything in that part c is explained on Saikoroshi-hen and Umineko. Saikoroshi is an arc on Rei, but how is Umineko no Naku Koro ni exactly related to higurashi?
