Release History

Original Release

This arc was first released in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kizuna Volume IV on February 25, 2010 for the Nintendo DS, as additional chapters inserted in the middle of Miotsukushi-hen.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Sui

This arc was included in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Sui, where the additional Kizuna section was split off as its own arc and given the Ura subtitle to distinguish it from the original Matsuri Miotsukushi-hen content, which received an added Omote subtitle. However, Sui and Hou are officially treated as containing 19 and 23 arcs respectively, implying that Omote and Ura are collectively counted as one arc.

Sui released on March 12, 2015 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hou

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hou included this arc and was released on July 26, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch and January 24, 2019 for the PlayStation 4.
