Street Fighter II
Super Street Fighter 2 HD Remix started out as a remake of Street Fighter Alpha 3. Lead designer David Sirlin felt that Alpha 3's large roster would make the development process more difficult. He also believed that the game's lack of approval by the hardcore community would harm the game's sales, so he pushed Capcom so that they could work on SF2 instead.

David Sirlin also confirmed that the development team scrapped 2,500 animation frames in development because they weren't satisfied with how they turned out.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars
When choosing candidates for the Tatsunoko and Capcom character rosters, the development team were given free reign to nominate any character they wished. However, the team faced limitations on its Tatsunoko candidates; Niitsuma explained, "[We] had to consider licensing issues. Once we had that list we had to figure out how to make a balanced fighting game. On top of that we wanted a good balance between male and female characters."

Among the Tatsunoko candidates, the team considered the eponymous characters of Muteking, The Dashing Warrior and Nurse Witch Komugi, but they were eventually scrapped. The team also disallowed characters from Genesis Climber MOSPEADA or Samurai Pizza Cats, despite the high number of fan requests for the latter.

As for Capcom candidates, the development team hoped to include Arthur from Ghosts 'n Goblins, Ingrid from Capcom Fighting Evolution, Charlie Nash, Ibuki and M. Bison from Street Fighter, a Tyrant (unclear which one specifically) and Leon from Resident Evil, Date Masamune from Sengoku BASARA, Hsien-Ko from Darkstalkers, Zero Gouki from Cyberbots, Tiara from Gaia Master, Rouge from Power Stone, June from Star Gladiator, and Nero from Devil May Cry.
