Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! Physical Release Delayed

You’ll Have To Wait A Little Longer


Publisher Serenity Forge released Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! back in June to a great deal of acclaim. My own 4.5/5 review said:

“This is a game that just keeps opening up as you dig deeper and one that even now I can’t stop thinking about, even if a part of me wishes I could.”

That hasn’t changed in the month since, but one thing has. The release date of the upcoming physical versions of the game. You can get digital versions of Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! now on PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. Physical editions were set to hit PS4, PS5, and Switch on August 31st.


As with all of the other delays we’ve talked about in recent weeks, COVID-19 has had a big impact on the industry. This means they need a little more time to get these versions out, with them now set to release September 21st. Serenity Forge released the following statement:

“Dear Fans,

Unfortunately we have encountered unforeseen delays with manufacturing and shipping as a result of COVID-19, requiring us to delay the physical release of Doki Doki Literature Club Plus to September 21st. We understand your excitement and are working around the clock with our manufacturers across the globe to bring you the highest quality and most meaningful product possible. We appreciate your dedication, patience, and continued support.

Thank you”


While this sort of delay is unfortunate, it’s par for the course right now. If you can’t wait, digital versions are available now. Either way, check out a trailer for Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! below and let us know what you think.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
