- Scott's calendar book is the same as Lillian Weiss' from Stay Tuned for Danger (anger management is not surprising).

- While trying to watch the TV (before you have to fix it), you can see glimpses of Watching Waverly (a TV show inspired by the events at Waverly Academy last year), Attorney General (the show mentioned on Izzy Romero's Twitter and Pete's blog) and Detective Beach (the show advertised at the end of Secrets can Kill and that Rick Arlen mentioned in Stay Tuned for Danger). There is also a show called "Are you a detective?" which shows a hallway from Blackmoor Manor in Curse of Blackmoor Manor.
- You can also see scenes inside and outside of the WWB studio in New York City from Stay Tuned for Danger, and a commercial for Madame McKay's fashion lineup from Danger by Design.
- The Hilihili from The Creature of Kapu Cave provides the plants for the agricultural students.
- The clue pointing to the location two games ahead is the Frankenstein book on the table in the living room (a German name), which connects with the radio clip of someone saying what sounds like "and that little girl grew up to be Mary Shelley", the original author of Frankenstein. Frosty also wants a car from Germany, an advertisement for which he has near his desk.
Secrets Can Kill: RemasteredEdit
- This game has many references to past Nancy Drew games, plus books celebrating Nancy's 80th anniversary. One of these is the cover of "The Whispering Statue" on the billboard in the teacher's lounge.

- Barnacle Blast, from The Haunted Carousel, is a minigame at the diner.
- Jake wants to own Dread Isle from Ransom of the Seven Ships, and Nancy vacations there after she's solved the case (presumably back in her own time, as gong there in 2010 may cause a paradox).
- There is a book in Aunt Eloise's house that tells of a ghost story, possibly referencing Shadow at the Water's Edge.
- After getting both Easter Eggs, a mysterious line appears in Nancy's journal: "I can't wait to go home and help my friends in the ..ERROR.." This probably refers to the Clues Challenge in Alibi in Ashes.

- There were many clues to throw the players off as to the location two games ahead, such as Miwako's pamphlet for Greece or the last guest to leave being Australian, as well as the animal on the purikura booth being a koala, when in reality the location is River Heights. The Australia clues are probably for The Case of the Missing iPad.
