Very few games can create such hysteria and online sensation. From the fever pitch of the Five Nights at Freddy’s to every Minecraft clone when it debuted and others. However, there was one super cute game that broke the internet: Doki Doki Literature Club. That’s right the adorable psychological horror game Doki Doki literature club is getting a new updated version for PC and consoles.
WARNING: Light Spoilers and Sensitive material ahead. Please read at your own risk.
A game that took people by surprise that such a cute game about girls writing poetry could be so dark. But that is exactly what Team Salvato set out to do with Doki Doki Literature Club or DDLC. Whether it’s about the abuse that Natsuki endures from her father or the psychotic possessive yandere nature of Yuri. From the depressive and self-destructive nature of childhood friend Sayori and the super perfect and talented Monika, who is the only one who matters. Only Monika.
As the game plays out and you create poems and deepen your relationship with each of the characters, it is all proven to be useless. As one character destroys all sense of reality and view of each one gets distorted as their darker sides come out. All of this is, of course, a plan by what is made out to be a sentient AI. From having to dig through game files and changing “Code” there wasn’t an experience like it.
During the Summer Gamefest, it was announced that it was getting a new version with enhanced visuals and story content. As well as it was finally coming consoles.
As shown with brand new enhanced HD scenes and images, an updated music track, and a breadth of unlockable images; there is a lot to enjoy in this updated version. Along with the announcement came the announcement of a Special Premium Physical edition.
Included in the physical edition is stickers of the girls, a set of 2″ inch standees, a soundtrack download, a membership card to the club, and a special poem from Monika herself. The Physical edition is for sale for $29.99 for the PS5, PS4 and the Nintendo Switch. On the official site is where you can preorder it from the available retailers.
However, the game will be on sale for $14.99 on digital stores for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One & on PC for Steam and Epic Game Store. You can get Doki Doki Literature Club launching this summer on June 30th.
