Sonic Adventure 2
Attachment
At the start of the Dark Story when Dr. Eggman releases Shadow, a message can be seen on the edge of the pit where Shadow was held that reads:

"ASTRONOMERS ARE CONCLUDING THAT MONSTROUSBLACKS"


This message could be an early or unrealized hint at the existence of the Black Arms, the antagonists of the spin-off game Shadow the Hedgehog, or something similar that went unused in Sonic Adventure 2.

Kingdom Hearts III
When using the Classic Tone keyblade's Shotlock, Sora actually turns into the same exact cartoony monochrome form that he had donned when he was in the retro Timeless River world in Kingdom Hearts II. In addition, the 'portals' he comes out of and goes into during the Shotlock are extremely similar to the doorways that lead to different areas of the world that are used by the characters in Timeless River's story.

On the game's box-art, the clock on the tower to the left of the characters actually has thirteen roman numerals instead of twelve, and they are out of order. In addition to that, the two hands on the clock are pointing to 13 and the 7, representing the 7 lights and 13 darknesses that play a major role in this game's story. The clock tower itself bears a striking resemblance to the NTT Docomo building in Shinjuku, Japan.

Pokemon Sword & Shield
In the Eastern side of the Hammerlock Pavilion there is a little girl who asks the player to deliver a message to her friend in Ballonlea. However, when the player delivers it to said friend, they find that he is actually a middle-aged man. Adding to the eeriness of the scene, the man claims that the girl who sent the letter was a friend of his who he hasn't seen since childhood. If the player returns to where the child was, she won't be there, and if the player searches the exact area she was on, they will instead find a hidden Reaper Cloth (An item important to Ghost-type Pokémon), implying she may have been a ghost. Furthermore, if the player goes back to the man's house, a child will be standing facing the wall and state that she is having a conversation with someone. This seem to be part of a string of similar "Ghost Girl" Easter eggs seen in recent main-line Pokemon games,

Despite the game's ending revealing Jack the Ripper's true identity to be Spoiler:Jacob Levy, in reality there was no proof that he actually was. Whilst Spoiler:Levy definitely was a suspect in the real-life investigation, in actuality Jack the Ripper's true identity still remains unsolved to this date.

The special ability for the Mini Toads, reducing their size to get under tight spaces (the Small Crawl), is possibly a reference to how the Mushroom power ups from the Mario franchise move around. The Mini Toads while doing so even slightly resemble Super Mushrooms.

Outside of Sirchester there is an NPC who states that he swam from the Kalos Region (from Pokémon X & Y) to the Galar Region. If what he says is true then this confirms that the two regions are in close proximity to each other just like their real-world European counterparts of the United Kingdom (Galar) and France (Kalos), which, in real life, are very close but separated by the English Channel.

The Legend of Zelda
In the publication "The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia" by Dark Horse Comics, it was strongly suggested that the entirety of the first legend of Zelda game actually takes place on Death Mountain. Furthermore there are a lot of similarities between the entire map of The Legend of Zelda and the Death Mountain portion of the overworld from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, giving more credence to the claim.

The Conner android has several possible references to the Terminator film franchise. Conner is an "RK800" model, just as Arnold Schwarzenegger's character from the films is a "T-800" model initially. The name of the robot from the game is "Conner" which is very similar to the surname of two central characters from the films: Sarah Connor and John Connor. The Trophy for letting Conner die every way possible is called "I'll Be Back" which comes from Schwarzenegger's icon line from the first Terminator film.

Hyrule Warriors
The "Under Siege" musical theme appears to be based on part of Gustav Holst's "Mars, the Bringer of War" suite from Opus no. 32 "The Planets", this is appropriate due to the heavy war theme of the game and the situation the characters are in when the theme plays.

The face that Kirby makes when setting the Ultimate Choice difficulty to Soul Melter is an homage to the one that he had in an episode of Kirby: Right Back at ya! when he was possessed by a Demon Frog that made him evil.

Console: SNES
Attachment
Nintendo planned to create the CD Add-on for the SNES. Nintendo partnered with Sony and Philips to create the CD Add-on, but it was ultimately cancelled. This agreement allowed Philips to use Nintendo's IP on their own Gaming Console, the "Phillips CD-i.

Sony's own gaming ventures appear to have been influenced by this as the canceled reader was dubbed "The Play Station", akin to the PlayStation.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2
Attachment
A girl featured in the concept art of a pitch by Creative Assembly for a new Resident Evil game bears a striking resemblance to Natalia Korda from Resident Evil: Revelations 2. The images, by Brad Wright, depict a girl on a hospital bed and show her having some kind of unnatural powers. These story elements were all later included in Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Wright put the images online in 2015 a few months after the release of the game, though his statements imply that the pitch was made years before then.
