In February 2019, the game was removed from sale on Steam by the developer. This was because the game received a negative review bombing by Chinese gamers due to it featuring a poster with derogatory remarks about Xi Jinping, the president of China. Red Candle Games stated that they'd do another review of the game to make sure no other "unintended materials" were present. Additionally, all official trailers had been either made private or removed.

The studio's other game Detention had also been bombarded with negative reviews due to the outrage.

The limited collector's edition of the game was originally to include a set of Fate Cards, a Hobbe figure and a premium size box. However due to "supply chain issues!", the edition was reduced to just including the game disc, bonus DVD and bonus in-game content, plus $10 off the sale price. To make up for the change, Lionhead Studios offered a free download of the original Fable's soundtrack.

Japanese clothing company Uniqlo held a competition called the UT Grand Prix for a winner to have their artwork used for a t-shirt to be worn in-game and receive $10,000, with the grand-prize winner being Chinese artist Li Wen Pei. However, it was later discovered that Wen Pei had broken the contest's rules causing him to be disqualified and the grand prize not being awarded to another entrant. Though not explicitly stated by Uniqlo as to why he was disqualified, it's believed this was due to Wen Pei having used his design for his own commercial purposes such as on phone cases and t-shirts, which goes against the competition's rules. Wen Pei's design featured a Gyarados sitting atop a trio of Magikarp presented in a totem style.

Several changes were made to the game during its development: the game's box art was altered, the game's title changed from Cabaret Gals to Girls RPG: Cinderella Life, hostesses being changed to “Neosiennes”, the character’s underlying goal changed to finding a legendary lucky butterfly at the castle instead of being the best hostess, and the game's marketed sale price from 5,400 yen to 4,980 yen.

Though undisclosed, it's assumed that these changes were done so try and disassociate itself from the fact that the game is about being a hostess, which is deemed as not being one of the most dignified professions in Japan.

In April of 2019, the game was banned in Nepal after the Nepal Metropolitan Crime Division filed a Public Interest Litigation with the Kathmandu District Court. The reason for the ban was due to parents and schools complaining about the game affecting their children's studies. Psychiatrists in the country also claimed that the game made more people aggressive due to the in-game violence, which influenced the authority's decision. All ISPs and mobile service providers were ordered by the Nepal Telecommunication Authority to block the game.
