The game was originally in development for the Xbox and the GameCube, and was to be released in 2003, but the GameCube version was cancelled and the Xbox version was moved to the console's successor, the Xbox 360. In addition, Meepo was initially Kameo's sidekick in the GameCube version of the game. This is referenced in a note from the cupboard of the Mystic's Hut:
Take one Cube of ice... Add two beetles from a Box of Creepy-Crawlies... Heat to 360 degrees... Add Meepo scales to taste.
On 8th November 2005, it was announced that Maxmedia will develop an animated feature based on the game, adapted by Sunmin Park
The song that plays in Creeper's home when you turn on his radio is a remix of the title theme from Banjo-Kazooie
