The season of good news continues, with a long-awaited update on the translation of Rose Guns Days.
- Season 3:
- Season 4:
Witch Hunt will be releasing the remainder of Season 3 once the full translation patch is completed. Like the current patch, it’ll only work with the Last Season version of the game, which contains all Seasons 1-4
and can be purchased from MangaGamer (currently MangaGamer is renewing their contract to sell the game).
In related news, a new Spanish translation group called 23rd District has started up, and plans so far to translate Rose Guns Days and Umineko Hane en español.
Christmas has come early this year! xPearse of the AnimeSuki forums has single-handedly created a patch for the bonus content of Higurashi Hou, just released last night. It includes translations for:
- Hinamizawa Bus Stop
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Outbreak
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kamikanshi-hen (God Violating Chapter)
You can find the latest version of the patch here (with future versions likely to come).
That was surprisingly fast, especially for some obscure bonus content that might have languished without translation forever! I feel this bodes well for the future of When They Cry fandom outside Japan.
