News from Mangagamer AX Panel: Umineko is getting a Hardcopy Release!


It’s that time of the year once more, as Anime Expo is currently taking place in Los Angeles, and with it comes the Mangagamer Panel and news that’s bound to excite When They Cry fans!

Firstly, Umineko When They Cry Episodes 1-4 are getting a hardcopy release from Mangagamer launching August 18th! It’s already available for preorder from Mangagamer (18+ NSFW link) for $24.95 USD, the same price as it is on Steam! This release comes with the game disc, a reversible cover and even a free Steam key of the game! I’ve got mine pre-ordered, let us know below if you’re doing the same!

It was also mentioned in the Q&A that Umineko When They Cry Chiru is indeed in development! No indication of a launch window yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know once we do.


Lover of Nintendo/Key/07th Expansion, continuing to wander through the fragments in search of myself. Never forget the heart.
