- Accidentally Correct Writing: Thanks to the limited NES palette, Scrooge's frock coat is red, like in the comics, rather than blue as in the cartoon. Remastered, as a throwback to both media, uses the cartoon color scheme.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Disney owns the characters while Capcom still owns the source code. This problem kept the original NES game from making it over to the Wii Virtual Console. What happens when Disney and Capcom get talking again? Yes, BOTH games are coming out for PS4, XBOX One and PC on Steam. At less than $5 per game.
- Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Edition: The PS3 version of the game had a retail version of the game containing a voucher to download the game and a collector's pin. The Wii U's retail version will also have the collector's pin along with the game disc, but it is exclusive only to Target retailers.
- No Export for You: The Remastered version was not released in Japan. Justified, as the original NES game was made for Western audiences in mind. Averted when the iOS/Android ports came.
- The Other Darrin: New actors were hired to play the characters listed below in the remastered version because the original actorsnote had passed away by the time the game was developed:
- What Could Have Been:
- The Remastered version was originally going to include Scrooge's alter ego, the Masked Mallard (from the episode of the same name), as an unlockable costume.
- Menu screens featuring the Way Forward character Shantae (from the game of the same name) were found dummied out as well.
- Japanese copies of the NES game kept the infamous "dream and friends" ending from the prototype.
