Arcs included from Kizuna:

Miotsukushi-hen's version from Kizuna is also included, however it was split into two different arcs: Miotsukushi-hen Omote is similar to the arc's original release in Matsuri, but with some changes made to it. Miotsukushi-hen Ura consists of the extra chapters added to the Kizuna version that served as the conclusion to the Advanced Story.


Hajisarashi-hen is an extra arc based off of the Higurashi When They Cry Rei anime episode of the same name. In it, the main cast has fun at a pool.


Various arcs feature choices that determine how the story will go, with various bad endings included. There is also a minigame added called "Quiz Oyashiro Shock" where the player can answer trivia questions about the series and unlock art galleries and new arcs early.
