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.

Shovel Knight

The Shovel Knight amiibo figure, which is compatible with the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game, is the first amiibo to be able to function whilst still in its packaging, unaltered. This is because it doesn't include the blocking strip which can be found in every other amiibo packaging. Yacht Club Games made this intentional after receiving feedback from fans who wanted to keep it as a collector's item.

The figure is also the first amiibo to be produced not by Nintendo's own manufacturers. The game itself was also the first non-Nintendo developed title to receive its own amiibo.

In an effort to allow people to play the game who couldn't afford it, the game's developers decided to upload a free version of Darkwood onto the website The Pirate Bay to torrent. Instead of offering free Steam keys, they hoped that doing this would also stop key reselling sites from selling the game, and also hoped for gamers to eventually purchase the game once it was discounted on Steam.
