While physical copies of 07th Expansion’s Umineko no Naku Koro ni (Umineko: When They Cry) have been available in Japan since the beginning, MangaGamer’s official English releases of the sound novel series have been limited to digital download platforms such as their official website and Steam. Things have now changed.
MangaGamer has recently begun sending out copies of an Umineko: When They Cry physical edition, comprising of the four “Question Arcs” in one set. Priced at $24.95 USD (ex. shipping) and available through the MangaGamer Online Store, this set includes a reversible cover, a game disk and Steam Key Card. There is no limited edition collection available, but it nevertheless provides the option for a fan of the series to have a copy of the sound novel on their shelf.
This edition of Umineko: When They Cry features multi-language (English/Japanese) support, and the option to switch between “original” and “new” character artwork.
