- Zenze used to be named Zen, but it was changed at last minute for unknown reasons.
- Zen Studios stated that "a successor to Zenze is not planned for the forseeable future"
- Zenze has a more economic version of it planned to be released alongside it, called Zen Tab.
- The Pro Controller was made for the only purpose of Wii U backwards compatibility, although Zen OS games can use the controller too.
- Zen Studios has released boxart templates for Zenze games.
- The first one is the preferred template for most games. It's called Ambient, and it only allows for the front of the boxart to be made.
