posted on by Karen Ressler
The official Twitter account for game developer 07th Expansion announced on Wednesday that Shin Naku Koro ni and Umineko All in One Package will be delayed from their previously planned winter 2018 release to summer 2019.
Game creator Ryukishi07 explained in the message that he based the "optimistic" schedule on what he would have been able to do 10 years ago, when he would regularly get four hours of sleep a night, and do nothing but write when he wasn't eating or sleeping. He added that he plans to debut the opening movie for Shin Naku Koro ni on November 29.
Shin Naku Koro ni is the newest installment in the Naku Koro ni (When They Cry) franchise. It was first announced under the tentative title ●● no Naku koro ni.
Umineko All in One Package, first announced as Umineko no Naku Koro ni Saku, is a compilation disc of all previous Umineko games plus a new scenario.
07th Expansion has not yet announced platforms for either title. Ryukishi07 is credited with the original work and scenario, Nakaobōshi is credited as the main scriptwriter, and Remotaro is credited with the main graphics.
