In case you haven’t noticed, the translation patch for the PC version of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni – Onikakushi-hen was released 2 days ago by the Sonozaki Futago-tachi over at http://sonozakifutagotachi.blogspot.com/.
Before anyone starts mentioning piracy, Onikakushi-hen was released as a demo. If you own the full Higurashi game, there’s a patch for the full version as well. In short, there are two versions of the translation patch. One for the full game and one for the demo.
You can get the demo at http://07th-expansion.net/Soft/Taiken.htm, I tried the 11th mirror and found it to be the fastest. As for the translation patch, please head to the website stated above earlier and while you’re at it, show your appreciation for the translators!
Here’s a couple of screenshots of the game with the patch applied.
Now, I wonder when will the PS2 game receive a translation/localization..
