Doki Doki Literature Club Plus was announced at E3 2021, and the good news for fans is that the release date and time for when it will come out on PS4, PC, and Xbox One is quickly approaching.

We wouldn’t want to spoil the game’s true nature for newcomers who want to see what all the fuss is about, but just know that content warnings have been added for certain scenes. It has the typically cutesy dating simulator look and feel with the stereotypical anime gals and school setting, but it’s so much better than just another ‘pick your waifu’ experience.

The game and its infamous Monika have been talked about to death for years, but even the most jaded fan will still want to buy the newest iteration to see its extra content.

How to pre-order DDLC Plus

You can pre-order Doki Doki Literature Club Plus from the Nintendo eShop or Steam for £10.16 and £10.25. The game is also coming to PS4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games store, but it will only be available to buy from these platforms’ digital stores on release date.

No official price has been shared for PlayStation, Xbox, and EGS, but we imagine that it’s roughly the same as Nintendo and Steam. If you’re a returning fan who played the original for free on PC, you probably want to know what warrants the sudden emergence of a fee.

For the price of admission, you will not only get to see Monika and Co in better lighting thanks to HD visuals, but you’ll also get to experience six new side stories, 13 extra bits of music, and 100+ unlockable images to gawk over.

Physical premium edition

The release date for the digital edition of the game is June 30th, meanwhile there’s a physical premium copy you can buy that will come out on August 20th. Aside from just a physical case, it also comes with the following luxuries:

  • Sticker sheet
  • Poem from Monika
  • Soundtrack download card
  • Literature club membership card
  • Two inch character standees – set of four

You can buy the premium edition from GameStop, Target, and Best Buy. It is only available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5.

What time does Doki Doki Literature Club Plus come out? Expected Schedule

As it stands, there is no current official release time for when Doki Doki Literature Club Plus will come out on PS4 and PS5, but the PSN store suggests it will launch at 18:00 BST on June 30th.

As for Nintendo Switch, the platform’s support website says that third-party titles typically don’t become available until 17:00 GMT on the release date. This suggests DDLC Plus could release at the same time as the PSN store suggests.

Meanwhile, Steam’s countdown timer says that it will launch at 16:00 BST instead.
