At long last Umineko’s fighting game Golden Fantasia has been released in English!
Golden Fantasia, formerly known as Ougon Musou Kyoku is the first fighting game to be released by Mangagamer; an impressive feat for an eroge company! This release features all the gameplay and characters from the “Cross” expansion with improved rollback netplay. If you need more convincing, prominent Fighting Game figure Lord Knight has provided his first impressions of the game and the mechanics.
For those just learning the basics, Mangagamer has released a beginners guide to equip new players with helpful knowledge! They’ve also prepared a discord for players to learn the ropes and play against each other. A tournament for the game is being hosted there on the 15th of December, might be worth checking out!
I am excited to revisit this game and the memories spent playing until dawn to get all the CGs unlocked for the game.
Golden Fantasia is being sold at the standard price of $24.99 USD, but you can pick it up at 20% off at $19.99 USD starting today. Will you be picking it up?
And remember - this game includes spoilers for all 8 Episodes of Umineko, so don’t play unless you’re prepared for that!
Perhaps with this experience, we can expect Higurashi Daybreak to be released in English as well! Time will tell.
