Umineko no Naku Koro ni Saku (うみねこのなく頃に咲 Umineko no Naku Koro ni Saku?, lit. When the Seagulls Cry Blossom) is a collection of Umineko no Naku Koro ni content similar to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hou. It was originally slated to be released alongside Ciconia no Naku Koro ni in the winter of 2018 but was ultimately delayed alongside Ciconia until October 4, 2019. It is officially subtitled When They Cry 4+, the third release to carry this title after Umineko no Naku Koro ni Tsubasa and Umineko no Naku Koro ni Hane.
The collection notably features two completely new pieces of When They Cry media:
- Our Confession, a visual novel adaptation of a previously released booklet which describes the creation of Game Boards.
- Last note of the Golden Witch, a short episode featuring Battler Ushiromiya, Ange Ushiromiya, and Beatrice facing off against the witch Piece.
The collection also includes a series of crossover visual novels referred to as 07th Theater which feature characters from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Umineko no Naku Koro ni, Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni and Rose Guns Days. These were previously released at 07th Expansion Parties 2 and 3, though they were not made widely avaliable until the release of Umineko no Naku Koro ni Saku.
