This game was notable for being released in three different forms. The first release, ''Infinity'', was released for the [=PS1=], and only contained the first five routes. The second release, ''Infinity CURE'', was released for the NeoGeoPocket, and contained two routes: [[spoiler:Izumi]] Curé (the sixth and final route) and the story "Yuka Cure" (Yuka's Route from Yuka's own point of view, added into later versions of the game). The third and final release was ''Never7: The End of Infinity'' for the Dreamcast, and contained all six routes. This release was later ported to PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.

* ShoutOut- A few to the KID VisualNovel MemoriesOff:
** Yuka buys a keychain of a fat cat at one point in the game, a reference to an actual pregnant cat from MemoriesOff.
*** A reverse ShoutOut occured in MemoriesOff Pure: the name of the protagonist's homeroom and English teacher is "Yuka Kawashima" (there's no evidence that they're the same person, though the protagonist's description of her personality does sound similar to the Never7 Yuka).
** The main heroine of MemoriesOff, Yue, makes a cameo in the game as a little girl.
** Izumi's alma mater is Sumisora Academy, the high school from the game.
** Non MemoriesOff example: during the tennis match on day one, Yuka makes an ''Manga/AimForTheAce'' reference. In the English translation, this was changed to a ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'' reference.

This game was notable for being released in three different forms. The first release, ''Infinity'', was released for the [=PS1=], and only contained the first five routes. The second release, ''Infinity CURE'', was released for the NeoGeoPocket, and contained two routes: [[spoiler:Izumi]] Curé, the sixth and final route, and the story "Yuka Cure" (Yuka's Route from Yuka's own point of view, added into later versions of the game). The third and final release was ''Never7: The End of Infinity'' for the Dreamcast, and contained all six routes. This release was later ported to PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.
