We shall see.. actually it's Higurashi that's giving me high hopes for Iwaihime (edit: I just read the blog again and apparently it's Iwai, not Shuku) , because the atmosphere in Onikakushi and Watanagashi had a good scariness to it (and (Higurashi Kai ending spoiler->) sadness when reading it a 2nd time after you know everything ;_; ) so I know that he can do creepy stuff well and am thus looking forward to a VN that focuses on the horror aspect :3
Well... with Dark Souls 3 now announced I feel like that soon™ is still a while away
I swear, if they cut Sacchin's route again because of time trouble I'll... dunno, write a strongly worded letter in very broken japanese or something
On the other hand, if they make Sacchin's route good and maybe add a little Sion, Riesbyfe and/or Akira side-route(s) it'll be worth the wait^^
edit: TL for the Iwaihime teaser blurb from reddit:
Hajakenshou…Crush evil, spread the truth.
For generations, the men of the Susuharai family have left home at a
fixed age to become independent. By tempering themselves without aid,
they would have their adulthood recognized. In preparation for that day,
I learned an array of things.
Susuda Prefectural High School—my new halls of leaning. To tell the
truth, I had planned to transfer my first year, not second. But my
everyday life here wasn’t just carefree; it was pleasant. I passed the
days happily with any of my peers from Second Year Class A.
But there was a girl—Kurokami Toe. To call her strange would be a
lacking description. Never for a moment would she let go of the
traditional Japanese doll she held in her arms. There were those who
whispered it was a cursed doll, whose hair would grow when you weren’t
looking. Indeed, it was an eerie doll.
However, meeting Kurokami might have been fate. No, it must have been.
