'''Warning:''' just like the previous installment, the plot [[SpoileredRotten is full of twists and turns]], so it might be best to proceed only once you have experienced the full story.

* UnexplainedRecovery: What happens when [[spoiler:a new game begins]] after the last, in which [[spoiler:EverybodyDies. Or at least a majority of the cast.]]
* UnreliableNarrator: A key part of the plot. It's explicitly stated that anything not in red text is liable to be false. What is in red text? [[MindScrew ...Not very much...]]
** Episode 5 [[spoiler:spells out what can and can't be taken as reliable: For episodes 1-4, only scenes that piece Battler narrates, For episode 5, only scenes that Erika narrates (which are very few)]].
** This applies in a broader sense later on, once you [[spoiler:learn that Episodes 1-2 were written by Yasu, and Episodes 3-6 by Tooya; each of them places far more emphasis on things relevant to themselves. Yasu's episodes are unreliable beyond that because they were written before the actual event, while Tooya's place ''much'' more emphasis on how Yasu was influenced by Battler, which makes it impossible to know how reliable that really is.]]

* BigBad: Beatrice the Golden Witch A.K.A. [[spoiler: Sayo Yasuda for the first half. Once she dies she is usurped by [[BigBadDuumvirate Bernkastel and Lambdadelta]] for the second half. Because of this, Bernkastel is now a RogueProtagonist and FallenHero, since she was the amalgamation of all the dead Rika Furudes from Higurashi, while Lambdadelta was [[ManBehindTheMan the one who]] [[HijackedByGanon granted Miyo Takano’s wish to become a god]]]].

While the arguments about the inheritance ensue, [[ClosedCircle a typhoon traps all eighteen people on the island]]. The family then finds a mysterious letter from a person claiming to be Kinzo's alchemy councilor, the [[WitchSpecies Golden Witch]], [[Literature/TheDivineComedy Beatrice]]. Beatrice claims that she has been summoned by Kinzo to claim the inheritance, as the family has been deemed unworthy of it. [[GameBetweenHeirs Unless someone solves the riddle of the epitaph on her portrait]] [[RaceAgainstTheClock before midnight on October 6th]] and becomes the family successor, Beatrice will claim everything that the family owns, including the ten tons of gold that Kinzo claims will be given to the successor. This is only the beginning of the strange and shocking events that will occur on the island during these two days. Panic, reasoning, romance, [[HamToHamCombat heated confrontations]] and a lot MindScrew ensues.
