During early concept stages of the game, Hanzo and Genji were once originally the same character, a cyborg ninja named Hanzo that wielded both a sword and bow.

Pokemon Sun & Moon
To help commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon series, the developers wanted to look at trainers and Pokemon as living things and express that in a better way. When coming up with ideas for Pokemon Sun & Moon, they created a theme for the game based around the concept of life, with both the sun & moon both being important to all life on earth. A place that came to mind to reflect this was Hawaii, an area with lots of sunshine, clear nights, and an abundance of life.

Z-Moves were introduced in order to have something that would allow players to use a wider variety of Pokemon in battle.
Rather than have an individual Pokemon that players can focus on and make strong like with Mega Evolutions in Pokemon X & Y, Z-Moves where designed as a system where any Pokemon can use them and be stronger and more relevant in battle.

Resident Evil Zero
While it was still being developed on the Nintendo 64, the game was going to have multiple endings depending on which character(s) were still alive at the end of the game. This meant both Rebecca and Billy could have gotten killed at some point in the game. The idea was scrapped due to the possibility of Rebecca's death contradicting the series' timeline.

Series: Shantae
Shantae director Matt Bozon has revealed that there were plenty of prototypes of games for Shantae that never made it off of the drawing board. These include things such as a spline-scroller (like Namco's Klonoa), a open-world 3D game (similar to Super Mario 64), and a 3D platformer. He even hinted that they were going to be released for the PS2, PC, and Nintendo Gamecube. Matt Bozon states:

"We had a polygonal Shantae that could be run around in three distinct gameplay 'gyms'. One was a spline-scroller (like Namco's Klonoa), one was a free-range 3D like Mario 64, and the last was an isometric 3D platformer. We've done a lot of exploration in this area" Shantae was a sprite/3D hybrid for PlayStation and PC, and was free-roaming on the PlayStation 2. She even rode a river raft on the GameCube. It's possible that we'll see a polygonal Shantae down the line, but only if it serves the style of gameplay we want to create at the time."
