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.

Maniac Mansion
Only a few weeks after the game went on sale, it was pulled from shelves at Toys R Us due to a complaint over the word "lust" printed on the back of the box, which prompted a revision of the game's packaging.

Street Fighter II
Chun-Li originally had a back flip attack, but it was cut due to being too strong and the team not having enough time to adjust it. However, sprites for the move still exist in the game's data, and it was later implemented in SFII: Champion edition.

American McGee's Alice
The symbols on Alice's dress have changed throughout promotional artwork and the several releases of the game.

In original promotional artwork, the symbols are the symbol of Neptune and the symbol of Jupiter. In game, the symbols are the symbol of Venus rotated 45 degrees to the left, and a sextile.

In the 2011 rerelease of the game, the symbols are the symbol of Eris, and the symbol of Jupiter. This makes the design fall in line with its appearance in the sequel, Alice: Madness Returns.

When American McGee was asked about the symbols he said "the difference in symbols might have to do with poor communication/planning and/or might have to do with the marketing department being overly sensitive about the symbols and their meanings. Too much time has passed for me to remember exactly what caused the differences."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
The emulated NES demos featured in the "Masterpeice" collection seem to run NES games at a higher quality than the actual Virtual Console versions they are promoting. This is most evident in how smooth and clear these demos look against the comparatively blurry VC ports.

This is likely due to Nintendo's improved emulation abilities rather than them purposefully trying to mislead fans, as the NES Virtual console was released very early in the Wii U's lifespan and likely used a system similar to that of the Wii.

Mortal Kombat (2011)
Data for an unfinished version of Skarlet can be found within the game's data. This version uses Jade's stance and Mileena's profile picture as placeholders, along with an additional costume not seen in both the home console or PC versions' DLC. This costume would later be made available in the PS Vita releases of the game.

At the end of the game's E3 2016 trailer, a Jiggy from Banjo-Kazooie can be seen in one of the character's drink glasses. This nod to some of the senior developers' previous series seems to be completely removed from the final game however, as Playtonic likely do not have the rights to use it.

Sonic Adventure
Sonic Adventure had a limited edition release available two months before the release of the SEGA Dreamcast in North America. SEGA signed a deal with the game rental company Hollywood Video that let people rent a SEGA Dreamcast two months before the release of the console with a selection of games, one of those being Sonic Adventure Limited Edition. Although those copies were never meant to make it into the hands of the public, the copies that did make it to the public usually are incomplete or have a Hollywood Video sticker on the top of the disc.
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
Early US copies had a few glitches that were fixed in later copies:

• When using the data transfer function, the game freezes if there are any Easy mode saves from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
• In the glossary, viewing Muarim's description lists Mist's description instead.

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
When the game was released on the 3DS Virtual Console, all renders of Multiplayer mode became unplayable, due to the 3DS not supporting any link or infrared capabilities that the Game Boy Color had originally. Because of this, strings referencing multiplayer modes in the Fortune Teller were changed to duplicate other Text Strings:

• "Today is your day to win the race" was changed to "Fortune is hidden in bricks unbroken".
• "Victory is yours in the coming race" was changed to "Feelings shared will be understood".
• "Trade high scores to set new goals" was changed to "Fortune is hidden in bricks unbroken".
• "A VS Mode victory is not your fate" was changed to "Stomping on spikes leads to sore feet".
• "Victory in a race may wash pain away" was changed to "Change old habits Yield new success".

NHL 2004
During NHL 2004's development and release, EA had to make two different cover athlete changes. Boston Bruin's captain Joe Thornton was the original planned cover athlete until Thornton was brought up on assault charges. EA replaced Thornton with Atlanta Thrashers player Dany Heatley when the game was first shipped out. However, Heatley was later involved in a car crash that killed his teammate Dan Snyder. After this, EA once again changed the cover athlete to Colorado Avalanche captain Joe Sakic. Existing copies of the game remained on store shelves, though further productions and advertising for the game were switched to Sakic.
