The idol unit has previously released two songs “E->MOTION” and “Cheat Dancer” which were well received by the fans and otome gamers in Japan and overseas.

Dressed in a robust, sexy and aggressive pop, X.I.P comes as the best idol unit from “Tokimeki Restaurant” with a very solid group of good seiyuu singers and with songs that aren’t as “corny” as you could maybe expect from a fictional idol unit in a women-driven game (otome game) but they impress with that aggressiveness and sensuality in the lyrics so this is a big announcement for those who have been expecting something like this for a while.

Titled “Naughty !!!“, the single is available in two different editions: regular and limited edition. The regular edition comes with a first press bonus (another jacket on CDJAPAN) and the limited edition comes with a DVD with the PV and other bonus still unknown.

The tracklist is yet to be revealed but we already know that the single contains 3 tracks and the respective 3 instrumental to a total of 6 tracks. Cover art is still unknown.

The single is available for preorder on CDJAPAN for all overseas fans.
