We here at Nintendo Enthusiast greatly enjoyed Doki Doki Literature Club Plus. A visual novel that is not what it initially appears to be, the title hit PC back in 2017. Now, an enhanced version of the game has hit the Nintendo Switch. Gamers are eating it up. In fact, publisher Serenity Forge and developer Team Salvato just announced Doki Doki Literature Club Plus has surpassed 500,000 copies in sales during its first two weeks. This is across all platforms, but it’s still impressive!
Maybe it is time for me to dive into Doki Doki Literature Club Plus
Here’s what Zhenghua Yang, co-founder of Serenity Forge, had to say about Doki‘s success:
We’re beyond ecstatic about the success of Doki Doki Literature Club Plus. In addition to publishing on digital storefronts over the past few years, we’ve been targeting an expansion into physical distribution as we see a market opportunity in that realm. We’re very much still focused on digital as that’s where the majority of fans prefer to purchase their games, but the retail success of Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is a testament to our strategy entering the physical retail distribution space as well as a reflection of the love that fans have for this game. We’re truly grateful for Team Salvato trusting us with Monika and her friends, and humbled by the love the fans are showing for the new content.
It’s good to see Doki doing well on the physical front. As of now, the game is only available physically on Switch, PS4, and PS5. Hopefully, the title’s success will allow for an Xbox and PC release in the future.
Dan Salvato, the creator of Doki Doki Literature Club, added:
I’ve had the opportunity to hear from so many fans about their experiences with DDLC Plus, especially the new Side Stories. We’re all brought together through connecting with the club members and relating to their everyday challenges. It inspires us to take on our own challenges and be our best selves. It means so much to me that I can make a difference in that way, and I hope our feeling of closeness will never have to subside. I’m eternally grateful for it.
I’m excited to see the extra goodies added to the Plus version. And since I only know a little about the game, this is the perfect way for me to experience the adventure. Going in blind is key to the title’s allure.
