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.

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.

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.

Sonic Heroes
A lot of Team Rose's levels end at a much earlier point than Team Sonic and Dark's. However, through the use of glitches, exploits, or cheats, it's possible to go past the goal ring with Team Rose and go to areas that are only accessible to the two other aforementioned teams. The same thing can also be done in some of Team Chaotix's levels as well.

Interestingly, the characters of both Team Rose and Chaotix have fully voiced and functioning dialogue for these normally inaccessible areas.

The game's story set-up in the Nintendo 64 and PC versions is that the wizard's accident is caused due to him mixing the wrong potions causing him to turn to stone, however in the PlayStation intro the incident is instead depicted as being deliberately brought about by the glove that becomes the game's villain, Cross-Stitch. The manual for the PlayStation release retains the incident as being an accident and not deliberate as seen in the other versions.

Aliens: Colonial Marines
The reason the Alien AI in the game is broken is due to a one letter spelling error in the game's .ini file. The line is written as

"ClassRemapping=PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachXenoToTether -> PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachPawnToTeather"

when it should read;

"ClassRemapping=PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachXenoToTether -> PecanGame.PecanSeqAct_AttachPawnToTether"

Removing the letter A from this line fixes many of the issues with the game's AI.
