Doki Doki Literature Club is a cult hit that started life as a free title on PC and Mac, and has become a much talked about and much talked about part of gaming culture. On the surface, this is a visual novel about poetry and romance, but its unique twist and approach then makes it an experience of “psychological horror.” Yes, that sounds crazy; this is also why it has gained so much attention and fandom.
It is now getting a full and updated version on consoles, including Nintendo Switch – it lands on June 30. As you can see in the trailer above, which appeared as part of IGN’s summer of the game, it’s a ‘Plus’ version that adds various extras and goodies to the package:
- 6 new side stories about friendship and literature, totaling hours of new content
- Over 100 unlockable images, including new in-game artwork, wallpapers, never-before-seen concept sketches and more
- 26 tracks in total, including 13 all new unlockable songs by Nikki Kaelar, plus special guests Jason Hayes and Azuria Sky
- A built-in DDLC music player to relax with your favorite songs in a personalized playlist, or loop a single track forever
- A high fidelity visual upgrade with all artwork now in Full HD (1080p)
There will also be a neat physical edition which will only cost $ 29.99 USD; the official shop indicates that pre-orders will open in the future and will also appear at major retailers.
