Release now slated for the 8th of October.
Serenity Forge has indicated that the physical version of Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! is being postponed once again. It was originally slated to release on the 31st of August, but this was pushed back to the 21st of September, and now being pushed back even further. According to Serenity Forge the current pandemic is the cause of its logistical issues.
Here’s their full statement:
Our teams have been working tirelessly with partners across the globe to bring the DDLC Plus premium physical editions to you. Over the course of the past year and a half, however, the pandemic has presented our partners with many unique challenges.
The nature of these challenges has been unprecedented and has greatly impacted the gaming industry as a whole. Manufacturing limitations, material and labor shortages, and shipping delays have significantly affected the timeline and process involved with physical production.
Due to these continued logistical challenges our partners have been facing, the physical release will be delayed to October 8, 2021.
After assessing their production timelines our partners have confirmed with us that there will be no further delays in the physical release.
We want to sincerely thank you for your continued support as a community, both in your reception of the initial release of DDLC Plus, and in your enthusiasm for the upcoming physical edition.
We are as excited as you are to experience all the love that has been put into this physical edition when you receive it in just a few short weeks.
