In one of Harley Quinn's introduction lines to Mr. Freeze, she asks if he can "make her a pony", to which he retorts, "It will make the twilight sparkle." Harley Quinn then will say, "Hahahaha! I was hoping you'd say that." This is a reference to Harley Quinn's voice actress, Tara Strong, who also voices Twilight Sparkle in the series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".

Keys for in-game rewards, which were intended exclusively for backers of the game's Kickstarter campaign, were stolen by a temporary contract worker hired by Limited Run Games, one of the game's distribution partners, and sold on ebay. Though unknown who the culprit was, it was decided by Limited Run Games from December, 2017, that they would cease hiring temporary contract workers.

The world record for the fastest completion time in the game has had contentious debate over its legitimacy. Todd Rogers had held the record since 1982 with a completion time of 5.51 seconds which he submitted to Activision’s official fan newsletter, which was also later recognized by the Guinness World Records. Despite even having support from Activision's founder David Crane over it's legitimacy, Rogers was stripped of his record in 2018, as well as his records for other games, as it was determined with evidence that the only possible legitimate fastest record to get in the game was 5.57 seconds.

American McGee's Alice
This game was the first M rated game published by EA. According to American McGee, he fought for the rating because he didn't want parents to buy the game thinking it was for children.

In retrospect, McGee stated he regretted fighting for such a high rating, believing the game wasn't violent enough to warrant it.

Contrary to popular belief, Urien's name is not a mistranslation of the name 'Julien', but rather it's a very obscure Welsh name taken from legends and Arthurian romances. The name means "privileged birth", which correlates directly with his parents being high-ranking members of the Illuminati, as well as his entitled attitude and wish to rule with utter supremacy.

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.

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
Attachment
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.
