Kurisu was first mentioned in Fallout 2, but was not given a name. She was initially meant to be found in the game, but this quest was eventually unfinished and Kurisu was cut from the final version.

She also was to appear in Black Isle's cancelled Fallout 3 project (Van Buren) as a joinable ally. Her name was revealed in the Van Buren leaks (it is a joke concerning Avellone's first name, her name being 'Chris' with Japanese pronunciation).
