The game's cover artwork originally featured the American flag and green gaseous fumes, and on the back the words "WANTED: Deadly Force Authorized", "deadly arsenal" and "terrorists". However, due to the then recent 9/11 terrorist attacks and the anthrax scare, the game had been recalled with these removed and the back text changed to make it more politically correct. This pushed back the game from its original September 25th, 2001 release to early November 2001. Some copies with the original box art had already shipped, making that version a collector's item and dubbed the "9/11 American Flag Cover". It also came in a dual case, despite the game only having a single disc.

The game was first released in 1998 on the PlayStation exclusively in Japan as Theme Aquarium, part of the "Theme" series of games by Bullfrog Productions. However, when it was released in 2000 for the PC exclusively in Europe, it was simply titled Aquarium with the "Theme" name and any mentions of Bullfrog Productions dropped.

The reason for the PlayStation version featuring the "Theme" brand was that the previous Theme games had proved popular in Japan so publisher EA Square wanted to help further generate interest by asking Bullfrog to use it in its marketing. When porting it to the PC for the West, the reason to simply release it as Aquarium was due to the belief that "the game quality wasn't high enough for it it come out in the West as a Theme game, with the Bullfrog brand," according to Shintaro Kanaoya, who provided localization assistance.

A spinning EASN logo appeared in early builds of the game, though this was changed to a single spinning EA Sports logo instead. This was because of a lawsuit between ESPN and EA, whose fictional EASN branding sounded similar to ESPN.

Ready At Dawn made some adjustments for the game to run at the full 333MHz of the PSP's CPU when the game was re-released on the PlayStation Store as a digital download, instead of the system's default 222 MHz CPU speed. This resulted in smoother gameplay.

When Octo was brought to the west, Octo's color scheme was changed. This may have been done to avoid comparisons to racist stereotypes of black people. Interestingly, when the game finally saw a Japanese release no GameCube, they reverted Octo's color sceme back. Wario Land 3 also retains his original appearance in all regions.

The training room is completely modeled out in the 3DS version compared to the original release on the GameCube. However, in both cases, the player cannot use the Game Boy Horror, making it impossible to see through normal means.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
In April 2018, the iQue Player (a Chinese console based on the Nintendo 64) was cracked after 15 years. Upon hacking the console, a never before seen Taiwanese ROM of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was found suggesting that the system and/or the game was planned to be localized in that region.

Pokemon Yellow
If the player attempts to enter The Safari Zone without sufficient money to enter enough times, the worker who lets you in will take pity and allow you to enter with one safari ball. This was not an interaction in Pokemon Red & Blue and exists as a way to prevent the player from progressing in the game as a result of being unable to acquire enough money to get the HM03, surf, which is found in the park.

Ratchet & Clank
In the demo version, a cutscene in Blackwater City shows Darla Gratch says she's reporting for "Channel 64 News", but her microphone has a 2 on it. In the official release version, her small dialogue was change to "Channel 2 News", but her mouth doesn't match the words she says. In later games like Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, she was reporting for "Channel 64 News", as was originally intended during development of the first game.

The English version of the game removed a feature in Communication Mode which allowed the player to poke characters to make them interact with voiced dialogue. This is notably odd as this feature was advertised in English trailers for the game prior to release.

A limited NTSC run was made with that release now worth around several hundred US dollars.

Michael Jackson's Moonwalker
Early pressings of the Genesis version included snippets from "Thriller," the title track of Jackson's bestselling 1982 album, that would play whenever a special attack was used in stages 3-1, 3-2, 3-3 and 5-3. However, because "Thriller" was written by Rod Temperton and not by Jackson himself, the quotations from this song were replaced with ones from "Billie Jean" (also from the "Thriller" album) and "Another Part of Me" (from the 1987 "Bad" album); in these later pressings, stages 3-1, 3-2, and 5-3 use "Another Part of Me", while 3-3 uses "Billie Jean".
