Cancelled NES / Gameboy versionsUbisoft was going to publish a NES version and Gameboy version of John Madden Football '93 but it never materialized.
References to the gameThis game is referenced in the Spice 1 song Strap on the Side with the lyrics of "And like John Madden 93, "BOOM!!! He's on his back!" which is also a line often uttered in this game by John Madden.
Re-releasesThe Genesis version is featured in Madden NFL 2002 for PS1, only renamed as John Madden Classic. The Genesis version is also included on the bonus disc of Madden NFL: XX Years (Collector's Edition) for PS3 and Xbox 360, but was renamed Madden NFL '93, and had the rosters updated to those of the 2008-2009 season.
SalesThe game was EA's #1 seller of 1994.
