The SEGA plastic bags that are given out to people for playing the UFO Catcher machine features a Morse code message on it. When translated, it reads "UFO Catcher is not a vending machine." This message was added by the bag's graphic designer and means that because a player may insert money into it, it doesn't necessarily mean that they'll receive a prize. The bags had been in use since 2014 and the message's meaning was confirmed by SEGA on their official Twitter account.

Undertale
The game contains an ending error message where Sans will say;
"i'll be honest.i have no idea what happened for you to get here. this is actually some sort of error- handling message. so, if you're getting this ending...tell whoever made the game, okay? they'll fix it, or if it's a novel situation... they might even add another ending to the game. chances are, though... you're just a dirty hacker, aren't you? yeah, get outta here."

This works as an error handler when none of the available endings are triggered, which shouldn't happen during regular gameplay.

Company of Heroes was originally named "Brothers in Arms" during development.
Despite THQ later releasing a game under that name, the legal team at Relic Entertainment decided against it because it was too similar to Brotherhood of Arms, a previously released game.

Freedom Planet
The developer originally wanted to add alternate outfit colours for the characters that would have been unlocked gradually through play, there was even going to be an option to customise both Carol's scarf and motorcycle colours.
But a problem with the software used to develop the game meant that swapping the colours of the characters at runtime caused graphical glitches, so it was ultimately cut.

The game's director, Kaori Ando, originally envisioned for a crossover between Fire Emblem and Pokémon as he felt that the two series' RPG mechanics were well in line. However, the Pokémon Group already had a proposal at the time for another crossover which would become Pokemon Conquest, so the idea was not used.

World in Conflict
Attachment
World in Conflict contains a few references to other similar works.
One of the main characters in the game, Captain Bannon, is most likely a reference to Captain Sean Bannon from the 1987 best selling novel Team Yankee.
Both characters are high ranking US army officers in an Armor Company, and both fight in Europe during a "Cold War gone hot".

There are also plenty of references and similarities to the 1984 film Red Dawn as well.
Both have a large focus on the Soviet invasion and occupation of the United States, they include themes of resistance against Soviet occupation, and as previously mentioned both deal with a "Cold War gone hot" scenario.

The operation name for the Soviet invasion of West Berlin is even referred to as Red Dawn.

The title of the game seems to be a reference to a letter written by Mike Ranney, a Sergeant in the 101st Airborne Division during WW2, in which he writes;
"I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' I said 'No...but I served in a company of heroes'."

Sweet Tooth from the Twisted Metal series makes a cameo as Agamo's 4th costume, "Mecha-Sweet Tooth". In most releases of the game the costume can only be unlocked if Twisted Metal: Black is saved on a memory card, though some regional releases treat it as a regular costume.

In the multiplayer map NUK3TOWN, if you shoot off the arms on all of the mannequins, an alarm will sound in the distance. All of the mannequins in the map will then pursue you when your back is turned and will freeze in place when you face them. This is an homage to the Weeping Angels from the Doctor Who series, at which an enemy in the show that pursue people in the same manner.

Xenoblade Chronicles
There is an unused playable character named Lambert in the Japanese version of Xenoblade Chronicles. He has various animations for battle sequences, as well as running, walking, and jumping animations for movement outside of battle. The model's file name is pc2. Because "pc" stands for playable character in the game, this indicates that he was playable at one point. It's unknown if he was intended to be in the final game, or if this was simply for testing purposes. His model was found in "work.pkb", which is only found in the Japanese version of the game.

Samurai Warriors
Keiji's real name historically is Toshimasu ironically. The name Keiji comes from Edo legends, which mean "lead cautiously" due to his reckless personality. A lot of Keiji's visual design is inspired by his characters in the comic Hana no Keiji. His line during his Musou "Why do you think tigers are strong? Because they were born that way!" is a quote from the comic. His alternate outfit is also a reference to an event in the comic where Keiji shaves his head as a peace messenger to Ieyasu.

Many of Keij's weapons and fighting style are also inspired by kabukimono as he celebrates and dances during battle.
