At the end of the game's E3 2016 trailer, a Jiggy from Banjo-Kazooie can be seen in one of the character's drink glasses. This nod to some of the senior developers' previous series seems to be completely removed from the final game however, as Playtonic likely do not have the rights to use it.

Sonic Adventure
Sonic Adventure had a limited edition release available two months before the release of the SEGA Dreamcast in North America. SEGA signed a deal with the game rental company Hollywood Video that let people rent a SEGA Dreamcast two months before the release of the console with a selection of games, one of those being Sonic Adventure Limited Edition. Although those copies were never meant to make it into the hands of the public, the copies that did make it to the public usually are incomplete or have a Hollywood Video sticker on the top of the disc.
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
Early US copies had a few glitches that were fixed in later copies:

• When using the data transfer function, the game freezes if there are any Easy mode saves from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
• In the glossary, viewing Muarim's description lists Mist's description instead.

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
When the game was released on the 3DS Virtual Console, all renders of Multiplayer mode became unplayable, due to the 3DS not supporting any link or infrared capabilities that the Game Boy Color had originally. Because of this, strings referencing multiplayer modes in the Fortune Teller were changed to duplicate other Text Strings:

• "Today is your day to win the race" was changed to "Fortune is hidden in bricks unbroken".
• "Victory is yours in the coming race" was changed to "Feelings shared will be understood".
• "Trade high scores to set new goals" was changed to "Fortune is hidden in bricks unbroken".
• "A VS Mode victory is not your fate" was changed to "Stomping on spikes leads to sore feet".
• "Victory in a race may wash pain away" was changed to "Change old habits Yield new success".

NHL 2004
During NHL 2004's development and release, EA had to make two different cover athlete changes. Boston Bruin's captain Joe Thornton was the original planned cover athlete until Thornton was brought up on assault charges. EA replaced Thornton with Atlanta Thrashers player Dany Heatley when the game was first shipped out. However, Heatley was later involved in a car crash that killed his teammate Dan Snyder. After this, EA once again changed the cover athlete to Colorado Avalanche captain Joe Sakic. Existing copies of the game remained on store shelves, though further productions and advertising for the game were switched to Sakic.

Back to the Future: The Game
While the game was being developed, Dennis Lenart wanted to include actors from the original films to reprise their characters, but some of them were unavailable at the time. Later in 2015, Tom Wilson, who played Biff Tannen, replaced Andrew Chaikin to reprise his character's voice in the "30th Anniversary Edition".
This version was released on October 2015, to celebrate the same month and year that Marty McFly and Doc Brown went to the future (October 21 2015) in Back to the Future Part II.

Destiny of an Emperor II
Based on the popular manga from the 80s, Tenchi wo Kurau, which is set in 3rd century China; the game was originally titled Tenchi wo Kurau II.
Much like the first game of the series, Destiny of an Emperor, when the game was localized in the U.S. the box art depicted a 16th century Japanese samurai warrior on it, instead of a 3rd century Chinese warrior.

The first Nobunaga's Ambition game was actually the second in the series, originally titled "Nobunaga no Yabou: Zenkokuban".
Though it was the second game in the series, it was the first ported to the U.S. and so it was simply titled Nobunaga's Ambition in the West.

In the sewers of Lower Hengsha, there is a breakable wall only accessible with the Punch Through Wall augment. Inside the room are several Nuke Virus Softwares, a Valve to turn off poisonous gas, and two dildos on a mattress next to a bottle of lube and box of tissues.

The two dildos caused the game to be delayed in Japan for about a month, as it was slated to be released in September 2011, but was delayed until October 2011, as the Japanese ratings board prohibits the depiction of sex objects in retail games. According to Matthew Kowalewski of the Super Best Friends Play youtube channel, who worked as a QA Tester at the time for Square Enix's Eidos Montreal, they had to go as far as to do "Dildo Duty", which involved manually searching the China levels for any potential remaining dildos that may have been left over.

In the Director's Cut version of the game, they are completely absent from the game for all regions.
