In some rather unfortunate news, Serenity Forge has delayed the Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! physical edition once again. This is due to the coronavirus pandemic affecting production and resources toward the physical edition. As a result, the physical edition is now releasing on October 8th. Here’s what Serenity Forge had to say:
Dear #DDLCPlus Fans, 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.
– Serenity Forge & Team Salvato
