Super Groupies opened up pre-orders for Doki Doki Literature Club accessories and merchandise. Pre-orders will be available until 12pm JST on June 19, 2023. That would be 8pm PT/11pm ET on June 18, 2023 for those in the west. In total, Super Groupies will release six Doki Doki Literature Club items that draw inspiration from the four club members.
There are four watches with designs based on Sayori, Monika, Yuri, and Natsuki. The watches also contain references to the game itself. For example, the face of Yuri’s watch is at an angle, much like how the backgrounds slanted in Yuri’s route. Another example is in the black pixels on Natsuki’s watch to emulate the pixels that would appear. Each watch costs 22,000 JPY, which is around $156.80.
Super Groupies will also release a tote bag and a wallet based on Monika. The leather is the same light brown of her hair. As well, the insides contain the “Just Monika” text box, as well as a lot of text glitches. The tote bag costs 18,700 JPY (around $133.30) and the wallet costs 15,400 JPY (around $109.80).
Doki Doki Literature Club started as a freeware game that Team Salvato released in 2017. Though it begins like a normal visual novel, things start to go off the rails after a few hours. It has a large online fanbase, with one of the reasons behind its success behind its usage of surreal and psychological horror. An expanded, paid version later appeared on consoles and PCs.
The Doki Doki Literature Club accessories and merchandise from Super Groupies will be available until June 19, 2023. As a reminder, Super Groupies does offer international shipping, so those living overseas will be able to directly order from the website.
