Doki Doki Literature Club Plus - Price, Physical Limited Edition, How to Pre Order DDLC on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch

Announced at the Summer of Gaming, DDLC is coming back with new content in a version titled Doki Doki Literature Club Plus, coming to PC and consoles – here’s how to pre order the game, and the contents of each physical limited edition.

DDLC is a social phenomenon in how it introduced the typically Japanese genre of psychological horror visual novels, also called Denpa Novels, to a broad new audience. Thanks to the original game being free on PC, and actually being in English, with no language barrier.

DDLC has a huge following both in and outside Japan (the Famitsu tweet announcing DDLC Plus is over 30,000 RTs), and looks like this fandom will get even bigger now.

Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is, despite its looks, a horror game. Do not play the game if you do not like horror. This is not a joke nor a meme, and do not take the game’s warnings lightly.

How will DDLC work on consoles?

Note that this section contains minor spoilers. Both the English and Japanese fanbase of DDLC are wondering on Twitter how DDLC Plus will be working on consoles. Because the original PC game has something similar to Metal Gear Solid‘s Psycho Mantis boss fight and its Memory Card saves reading.

I’ve personally seen many Japanese fans on Twitter wondering how the files manipulation will be handled in console versions, and it’s one of the things they’re looking forward to. “PC以外”, has in “platforms other than PC” has been funnily trending on Japanese Twitter too following the DDLC Plus‘ announcement.
