Doki Doki Literature Club Plus Adds New Content to the Viral Visual Novel

Doki Doki Literature Club (yeah, that Doki Doki Literature Club) is getting a special edition release for consoles. Monika and the rest of the literature club will make their return on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox on June 30 with Doki Doki Literature Club Plus. Originally launched by Team Salvato on PC in 2017, this new package of the secretly psychological-horror visual novel will include additional side stories, HD visuals, and more than 100 unlockable images.

The game will include more than 13 new tracks to flip through in an in-game music player. In-box exclusives shown at the end of the Doki Doki Literature Club Plus trailer are available to purchase as well, though only for PlayStation and Nintendo Switch players.

Kicking it with the Doki Doki Literate Club Plus cast might sound fun, but it’s important to reemphasize that this is a psychological horror game. Just beneath the surface of this cutesy anime story is a horror game with a meta-narrative that is sure to make your skin crawl. Team Salvato attracted viral attention when the game first terrorized unsuspecting audiences a few years ago, and it looks like Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is aiming to do that all over again.
