  • The original Japanese release of Animal Forest + for GameCube lacks Soccer and Excitebike, and instead features the early Famicom versions of Gomoku Narabe and Mahjong.
  • Depending on the version of the game, some NES games are obtained through different means.
  • Clu Clu Land D, Soccer, Donkey Kong 3, Donkey Kong Jr. and Punch-Out!! were initially unavailable in-game, however Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe later released codes that could be used in the game to unlock them, though Punch-Out!! was deciphered by fans.
  • Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda cannot be played through normal means.
  • Some NES games were re-released in Classic NES Series for GBA.
  • There is a fake NES game in Animal Forest e+ and Animal Crossing, obtainable from Tortimer on April Fool's Day called Super Tortimer.
  • When playing Animal Crossing using a setup that supports the game's progressive scan display mode, the mode must be activated in order for NES games to be playable.
  • In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the New Nintendo 3DS and Wii U furniture items received from fortune cookies may be a nod to these NES games, as they are playable Nintendo consoles.
