Umineko no Naku Koro ni, translated as When the Seagulls Cry, is a popular doujin visual novel series that was originally created by 07th Expansion for the PC, and has since been adapted into an anime and manga series. The masterpiece series has been remade for the PS3 (and now the PSP) by Alchemist under the title Umineko no Naku Koro ni ~Rondo of the Witch and Reasoning~. The remake of the PS3 version contains the first four of the novels-- the question arcs.

I don't mind it if this is only released over the PSN, as long as I can get this game in my house, with English text! Just that much is fine enough for me.

The fan base for this series is huge, so this game would sell no matter how it's distributed, be it in stores or online. And I'm going to do my best to demonstrate to NIS just how much the world loves this series, so expect a lot of bumps and linking and overall obsessive campaigning.

This seems pretty cool, I'm on board! And for the record VNs are not my thing, sooo my pull here should be (is) big 8-)

Watch Umineko no Naku Koro ni and you'll see that it's a great anime, and Akiko Shikata sings the OP (same singer of the Ar Tonelico II and III OST).

Not Rika.

Also, doubt this will be localized. Sony hates VNs.

Go play the PC version with shitty art instead. (Hey, at least it's not AS BAD AS HIGURASHI...)

This looks really good. This would be a def buy from me. I know it's a long shot, but we need more VNs here and for consoles.

I'm going to be optimistic here~ With Disgaea Infinite being confirmed for localization, I think it's only a matter of time before visual novels get some of the love they deserve. North America has a lot of VN fans already, but as they are never localized, they either have to become bilingual (if they aren't already) or play the novel blindly.

Because of their localization of the game, I have faith that NISA will at least consider localizing Umineko. NIS, unlike another game company I know--COUGHNAMCOBANDAICOUGH-- actually seems to care about the fans, the gamers. That's why I'm here. :3 Now we just have to demonstrate to NISA just how amazing this franchise is.

And I've played the original Umineko VNs. The art's pretty easy to get used to. 8D

Thanks for your support this far, everyone! It means a lot to me!

Disgaea Infinite wasn't just confirmed, it was released. Sure it's psp vs ps3, which the psp has better chances of picking up niche games, but we have to start somewhere. Let's have the PS3 be as great as the PS2 in terms of variety of games.

I'm all for it. Let's make this happen.

I highly recommend that no one does this. The anime is awful. It's so bad that 2ch rated it the worst anime last year. It's so bad that the DVD and blu-ray sales aren't ranked, and you only need to sell 600 copies to be ranked. That's pathetic. It's so God-awful that it's a mediocre series in its own right and one of the most downright awful adaptations in existence. Do not waste your initial exposure to Umineko on something so bad. Play the VN instead. Watch the anime afterward if you feel like you still need to.

...I will agree that the OP is good, but you can just watch that on YouTube. Also, the OP for the question arcs in the VN is a different (but better) song also sung by Akiko Shikata, so you can get your fill of her in the VN, too.
I never got my avatars.
Still holding my breath for the other Marl Kingdom games.

I liked the anime, although you get a lot more information through the games.

So...I've seen my brother watching bits and pieces of the anime, but I really have no clue what this is about. Could someone just give me a quick summary of the premise? I think it's about a murder or something, or rather a series of murders? I can't really remember much of it.

There are a series of muders on a island that suddenly gets isolated from the world. It's then that the viewer must say if the reason of the murders is magic or another human being. Something like that.

I would support a title like this. I am all for more visual Novels. So if NISA can bring this out would be great.

Oh, and I forgot to say that most of Umineko and Higurashi's games are on the PC, so seeing this game on the PS3 is a good thing for console owners.
