Higurashi When They Cry is Getting a VR Adaptation

Virtual reality is about to get spooky because Higurashi When They Cry is coming to the platform.


The game was revealed at the Super Pachinko & Pachislot Festival 2017 booth at Nikoniko Super Congress. Don’t worry, a Higurashi pachinko machine was also revealed.

The Higurashi When They Cry VR event is going to be held on May 19, 2017 in Tokyo. Other details are slim: the site doesn’t explain what VR platforms the experience will be using nor if there are plans for a wider release.


Still, Higurashi is one of Japan’s most popular franchises, so there is a chance that the VR experience can expand after the one-day event. Would you dive into the virtual world of the franchise?
