Info

The buttons below will take you to the section 2a. Installer. This is currently the best method to install the patch in any operating system.

However, if you prefer to install the patch manually, go to section 2b. Manual Installation instead.

This patch modifies the newest release of Higurashi by MangaGamer, attempting to replicate the Nintendo Switch version of the game. It is compatible with both the Steam and any DRM-free versions (including GOG) of the game.

This patch is not compatible with the old/original Japanese release of the game.

  • The "Full Patch", with all the features described above

    • The Voices-Only patch is part of the initial development of the Full Patch. After the Full Patch is fully released, the Voices-Only patch is superseded by it.

Install the patch

Console Arcs (extra chapters)

The Console Arcs requires Ch.4 Himatsubushi to be played

Installing it over your Himatsubushi installation will overwrite the game with the console arcs. We recommend to make a copy of the folder and install the console arcs there. It is not required to install the Himatsubushi patch before installing the Console Arcs.

The Console Arcs are a set of exclusive chapters released for the console version of the game. These chapters were not written by Ryukishi, the game creator, but offer a new perspective into the events of the series and some stories that are completely unrelated to the main plot. There is no official release of the Console Arcs for PC, our mod is the only way to get it.

The Console Arcs patch is fully ported and translated by the 07th-Mod staff themselves. This content is unavailable on the PC version of Higurashi Hou (released fully in japanese and currently ongoing by MangaGamer in the west).
