Customer Reviews

English support?

So, I've watched the Anime, seen the two films, and was psyched to get to play a game (choose your own adventure story...from what I read). Downloaded this because it advertised English support, and yeah, if you count the Start, Continue, Bonus, Extra, and Info buttons. Everything else is in Japanese. I hope that the company that programmed this offers true English support. This series is great, and English speakers I'm sure would love this is given the opportunity to really play it. But, if you're fluent in Japanese (in which you probably already know the whole story anyway), let the rest of us know what we're missing. Until then, developers, help us with a translated version so we can immerse ourselves in this provocative world.

No real English support

I was so excited when I saw this being a huge fan of Higurashi and wanting to play the game that started everything. It said it had English support too so I was even happier. Then I found out that short of throwing menu nothing is in English. I was so disappointed. Please make a full English supported version.
