Star Wars: The Old Republic
In 2018, former game director for Star Wars: The Old Republic, James Ohlen, said in an interview with GameInformer that he regretted having not pushed it to be "Knights of The Republic online" as opposed to making it traditional in the style of World of Warcraft, referring to it as "Star Wars World of Warcraft."

Animal Crossing
In an early announcement trailer for the Nintendo Gamecube, Animal Crossing was called (or at least promoted as) "Animal Forest for Nintendo Gamecube", outright referencing the original Japanese title of the game (Dōbutsu no Mori or "Animal Forest" in English). This suggests that either the English localizers were thinking of keeping the game's original title, albeit translated, or the title "Animal Crossing" was not yet finalized.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
In an interview, art director Yasushi Yamaguchi was asked about how his team came up with the idea of having 2-players, he commented:

"The development of Sonic 2 was informed by two factors: the things we couldn’t do in the first game, and the response/feedback from players. The idea of controlling Tails came from programmer Yuji Naka, who wanted a kind of “1.5 player” game—something where it would be ok if the second player died. He wanted to allow for a tandem experience where both skilled and unskilled players could enjoy the game together."

Solid Snake's series logo was changed from the FOX emblem that was used in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, to the exclamation point seen when being caught in most Metal Gear Solid games.

This is likely because the FOX emblem (which first appeared in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater) is also commonly associated with series creator Hideo Kojima and his company Kojima Productions, a former subsidiary of Konami. Kojima left Konami in 2015 and the removal of the FOX emblem to represent the series is likely a biproduct of the split.
