Nope. Nope. Nope.

I'm out. See ya.

But now that I think about it, DS also got tons and tons of Visual Novels, even Higurashi too - that were never brought to the west. Except I think now they're bringing much more of them here. Only a few of them got fan translated, others I'd love to see translated are VNs of popular anime, like Kimi Ni Todoke, Haruhi, Lucky Star, Shuffle...

Wait wait wait wait~~~
There's a VN of Kimi Ni Todoke!?!? O_O
I LOVED that anime! ...

There's two of them: Kimi Ni Todoke Sodateru Omoi (1), and Kimi Ni Todoke Tsutaeru Kimochi (2). It's still possible that they could be translated, there's still people working on DS translations. Rosario Vampire DS game (mostly a VN) was randomly translated a few years back, I've been keeping an eye out for those.

Thanks a lot! They are DS only? Hum...
I'll keep my eyes peeled. That's one (or TWO!) otome I feel like I'd be ok to play (tried a couple and always ended up disappointed...)

This is awesome news!
One step closer to Umineko on Switch.
Also Saki, since this is Entergram.

I'm quite startled by that left-side girl's weird no-finger-hands...

All of the sprites have hands like that in Higurashi. However, there are also updated sprites that look more... anatomically sound, though I don't know if this port will use those updated sprites or not. I know that the MangaGamer release allows you to switch between the two.

Believe it or not, I actually prefer the original big hand sprites!

Wish they'd use the updated character designs...

A nail biting story indeed.

*Nightmares... just... nightmares*

I am PRAYING for even a digital only english release. I have been begging on twitter for this (and umineko) to be released and I am in shock it's actually happening
