People won’t be getting the Doki Doki Literature Club Plus physical copies on August 30, 2021. Serenity Forge announced a North American delay due to the pandemic. Instead of appearing as expected, they will now show up on September 21, 2021. The European physical release already had a September 2021 release date.
Here’s the official statement from Serenity Forge, which cited manufacturing and shipping delays as the reason why the physical copies won’t appear when they were supposed to.
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.
As a reminder, the Doki Doki Literature Club Plus retail copies will be a special edition version. In addition to the game, people will get acrylic standees of Monika, Natsuki, Sayori, and Yuri, stickers, and a digital copy of the soundtrack.
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is available digitally on the PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and physical copies will appear in North America on September 21, 2021 and in Europe on September 24, 2021.
