Exclamation News: Downloadable Higurashi!

Here's some exciting news for those of you who are interested in getting the Higurashi visual novels but scared by the shipping costs:

The first game in the franchise (containing the "Question" arcs Onikakushi-hen through Himatsubushi-hen) became available on New Years Eve on various download sites at the price of 1575 yen. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai (featuring the "Answer" arcs Meakashi-hen through Matsuribayashi-hen) will be available starting January 25th, 2008 at 2100 yen. Finally, the fandisc Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei will be available for download starting February 22nd, 2008 at 1050 yen.
So, if you can muddle through a Japanese online ordering system, you can download Higurashi (also Kai & Rei later this year) without having to deal with shipping!

Shion and I already bought all three games, but we hope someone will come along and recommend which download store to use and maybe give some instructions for ordering.

P.S. - Day 4 is fully translated and we're working on the adaptation.
