D3Publisher began streaming the opening movie for its VitaminX Destination romance fan disc on Monday. The video previews the opening song "Hōkago Eden" by Tatsuhisa Suzuki (the voice of Tsubasa Makabe) and Daisuke Ono (the voice of Hajime Kusanagi).

The game will ship in Japan on February 22. HuneX is developing the game for PlayStation Vita.

In addition to Suzuki and Ono, the cast includes Kousuke Toriumi as Shun Nanase, Hiroyuki Yoshino as Kiyoharu Sendo, Daisuke Kishio as Goro Fumonji, and Hisayoshi Suganuma as Mizuki Madarame.

VitaminX Destination celebrates the game's 10th anniversary. The story takes place seven years after the first game, when the boys have become adults. Yūri meets up with them again and new romances unfold.

The original game's story is set at Seitei Gakuen, an elite private academy that teaches every level from kindergarten until college in Tokyo. A new female teacher named Yūri Minami is starting her second year of teaching here, and she is now moving up from teaching middle school students to the assignment she had sought after: grammar for high school students. Unfortunately, she gets assigned to "Class X," an infamous group of seniors; it is said that all of their previous teachers have retired due to ulcers or neurosis. Minami must try to reach out to these students and get them into college.

D3Publisher released VitaminX for the developer HuneX on PlayStation 2 in 2007. Since then, the two companies have ported the game to Nintendo DS under the title VitaminX Evolution, and PlayStation Portable and Nintendo 3DS under the title VitaminX Evolution Plus. The game also spawned a DS mini-game collection called VitaminY and a PlayStation 2 sequel called VitaminZ. The sequel in turn receive ports for PSP and 3DS under the title VitaminZ Revolution.

The franchise received a three-episode original video anime titled VitaminX Addiction in 2011.
