Though Tam Tam does not return as a playable character, the game's code still contains his character data, suggesting that he was going to be in the game in an early stage of development. However, any attempts to access the data will result in the game crashing.

Nicotine Caffeine's name originated from Adachi's addiction to coffee and cigarettes during the game's development.

"I came up with the name "Nicotine Caffeine" because I was addicted to coffee and cigarettes when we were developing the game. I took the words "caffeine" and "nicotine" and changed them to kanji characters. I no longer smoke cigarettes."

• The background on the title screen is completely different.
