Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hou (ひぐらしのなく頃に奉, lit. When the Cicadas Cry Gift) is the latest visual novel release in the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni series. It is a collection that contains all released visual novel content for the series thus far, as well as some additional content. Unlike the previously released Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei, it is NOT officially subtitled When They Cry 2+. However, this wiki still refers to this title as WTC2+ along with Rei for the sake of convenience.

MangaGamer announced in early 2015 that they would translate and release all 14 chapters in Hou individually on Steam. [1]

Entergram remade the title under the same name on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
