Chrono Trigger
For video game magazine Game Informer's issue featuring their review for Chrono Trigger, they were planning to include a full cover spread featuring exclusive custom Chrono Trigger artwork by the game's artist, Akira Toriyama. Despite the game's publisher, Square Enix, agreeing on it, a week before it was to be made they informed Game Informer that Toriyama had decided not to do it in fear that due to his drawings being worth a lot they will most likely be sold on the black market. Lunar: The Silver Star was featured on Game Informer's cover instead.

As a way of preventing the use of a cheat device like Game Genie, additional code was put in place to detect one. If the system discovers any sort of leftover data in its RAM and VRAM, the game will lock-up and display a gray screen. This was done due to the game being released as part of a contest run by MTV.

In August 2017, the game was removed from the Nintendo Switch eShop after its ESRB rating suddenly changed from an E for Everyone to a T for Teen rating. This was due to a poster found in the game's Giant Home level which pictured a massive demon with naked female characters around his crotch area. An updated version was released on the eShop in September 2017 with the poster replaced with another featuring an abstract swirl.

Series: Mario
Lakitu's Japanese name, 'Jugemu' (ジュゲム); or 'Jugem' as it was romanized in later games of the series, comes from a rakugo folk tale. In the tale, a couple could not think of a suitable name for their newborn baby boy and so the father went to a temple and asked the chief priest to think of a name. The priest suggested several names, but they coulnd't decide on one, so they decided to mix all of those names into one, the final result being:

Jugemu-jugemu Gokonosurikire Kaijarisuigyo-no Suigyomatsu Unraimatsu Furaimatsu Kunerutokoroni-sumutokoro Yaburakojino-burakoji Paipopaipo-paiponoshuringan Shuringanno-gurindai Gurindaino-ponpokopino-ponpokonano Chokyumeino-chosuke

Console: Wii
In 2017, Nintendo lost a patent lawsuit with Texas-based tech company iLife Technologies Inc. who claimed that the Wii, Wii Remote, and Wii U infringed on their patents. The suit filed by iLife back in 2013 claimed that Nintendo had infringed on their patents which include devices that "contain systems or methods for body movement detection, body movement evaluation, body movement analysis, receiving body movement signals, analyzing body movement signals, responding to body movement signals, and remotely monitoring body movement signals."
The court decided that Nintendo had breached one of their patents and was ordered to pay iLife $10.1 million, less than what they originally wanted which was $150 million. Nintendo is currently seeking to appeal the decision.
