Doki Doki Literature Club Plus surpasses 500,000 copies sold
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus has had a successful launch, with Serenity Forge and Team Salvato confirming the game’s first sales figure. Since launching at the very end of June, 500,000 copies have been sold across all platforms.
Serenity Forge co-founder Zhenghua Yang said in a statement today:
“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.”
Doki Doki Literature Club creator Dan Salvato added:
“I’ve had the opportunity to hear from so many fans about their experiences with Doki Doki Literature Club 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.”
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is out now on the Switch eShop. A physical version will follow on August 31.
