Yo-kai Watch 4
The splash screen at the end of the Tokyo Game Show 2018 demo depicts various forms of Jibanyan, including Kuroi Jibanyan and Rudy. However, these two do not appear in the final game.
Shaq-Fu's notoriously low quality resulted in the creation of a website known as in 2001, devoted to the mission statement of destroying as many copies of Shaq-Fu as possible, with their "Reasons for LIBERATING" being listed as

•You prevent other generations from feeling the corruption of this game and its evil.
•You clear up the enormous copies of Shaq-Fu lying on the shelves in used console game stores. By doing so, you remove it from public display so that people will not be reminded of the game's existence.
•Purchasing many copies of the game shifts the demand schedule, consequently raising the price. Even though it costs you more money, it reduces the incentive for a non-liberator to buy the game; a worthwhile sacrifice.
•By getting it from another person, you remove the burden and embarrassment they feel.

The website contains stories, told through photographs, of site users visiting second-hand game shops to aqcuire copies of Shaq-Fu, a page with links to other anti-Shaq-Fu content, an archive of hate mail circa 2008, and was even updated to coincide with the announcement of Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn, announcing protest against the new title.

The popularity of would result in the creation of a response site,, devoted to purchasing and protecting copies of Shaq-Fu from the users of, containing anthropomorphized bios of "rescued" Shaq-Fu cartridges.

My Hero One's Justice 2
Attachment The DLC character Midnight's costume is censored in both the Western and Japanese versions of the game, with her chest being covered up by her leotard. In addition, her character artwork has her wearing formal wear instead of her hero costume: the outfit itself is a reference to the anime episode "Special Episode: Save the World with Love!".
Solstice: The Quest for the Staff of Demnos
Tim Follin, widely regarded as one of the most talented music composers in gaming history, does not fondly look back on much of his music, citing a lot of it as sounding like "nonsense" and believing that - due to being composed before game details were finalized - it was often unfit for the games, which cost him future work. He has cited the soundtracks of Solstice, the C64 port of Ghouls N' Ghosts, and some unspecified SNES titles as some of the few scores he can still enjoy going back. In the case of Ghouls N' Ghosts, he claims to still enjoy the soundtrack because "it was the least C-64 sounding project I did, in a way."

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
When SpongeBob is on-stage in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, he automatically activates a code titled "yummerSummon" - this does absolutely nothing, and serves as a comical reference to an infamous unused graphic in SpongeBob Saves the Day! for dataminers to discover. The Yummer graphic is not known to exist in All-Star Brawl.
SpongeBob SquarePants: SpongeBob Saves the Day!
Attachment In Mrs. Puff's sprite sheet for SpongeBob Saves the Day!, an image can be found of an unnerving semi-realistic CGI character, internally called "Yummer". The character's unsettling design, combined with an image present in the code of Sandy's torn-up scuba suit, caused a lot of speculation about the image's potentially macabre origin. The original creator of the graphic eventually came forward and revealed that the character was simply a developer in-joke from the late 2000s used as a placeholder for a scrapped feature where an undecided character would peek from the back of one of the Krusty Krab's poles. The character's name is also not "Yummer", but rather simply "Yum", named as such because "that's the opposite of what you'd use to describe him". The torn Sandy suit was part of a puzzle where SpongeBob would need to wear one of the treedome's helmets.

Sound Voltex: Vivid Wave
The song "Bi" (び, pronounced like "bee") is notable for containing an 8-measure long, 16th note jackhammer section (a section of hitting the same button continuously) in its Maximum Chart. Fittingly, the jackhammer in question is the B Button.

When brought over to Dance Dance Revolution A20, and later A20 Plus, the Challenge Chart for the song references this section, using down arrows for its jackhammer, mirroring the position of the B Button in Sound Voltex.

The song "Space Dog" is based on Laika, a Russian dog who became the first animal to orbit Earth from the Sputnik 2 spacecraft in 1957, and also died in the process.
This is further referenced in the song's genre "UCHU-RYOKOU" (ウチュウリョコウ), which is Japanese for "space journey".

Bombshell Barista: Speed Dating
While the version of the game was released on schedule, the Steam version was delayed due to Steam erroneously believing the game was made using AI, forcing the devs to prove that the game was made by humans. Unfortunately, Steam's review team rejected the inital appeal due to an error on their part, forcing them to reapply. The Steam version was finally released on September 29, 2023.

Despite MultiVersus being positioned by the gaming press and certain players disappointed with the latter game's lack of content as being a "rival" for or having "killed" Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, the development teams behind both games are fans of one another's work.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
In an interview with the game's producer Yasunori Ogura published on PlayStation.Blog on August 21, 2023, he was asked how the series was able to be revived after ten years since the previous installment in the Armored Core series, and when did the initial planning and development began? He responded:

"First, I would like to thank everyone for their continued support of the Armored Core series throughout the years, especially our fans, who have been waiting for ten years since the previous installment, Armored Core: Verdict Day.

As for the process leading up to the development of this title, our company’s President, Hidetaka Miyazaki, myself, the director, Yamamura, and many other members of the development team all really wanted to create a new Armored Core game. We also fostered a team of very talented people through our experience in developing other titles, so we basically had no reason not to go ahead with the development of a new Armored Core.

So, around 2018, in the early stages of development, Miyazaki and a few others established a small team of initial directors who went back and reevaluated the fundamentals of the Armored Core series and began development of a prototype that helped them determine the direction of the new entry. After the release of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in 2019, Yamamura joined the project and took over as director. Full-scale development kicked off around 2020.

Meanwhile, because we had several projects underway at the same time, we had to allocate internal resources for the development of other titles. Which in turn resulted in a long ten-year wait for this game."
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
Attachment A promotional cookie was included in press kits for Metroid Prime 2: Echoes in 2004. It was a white, round cookie with the game's logo printed in the middle and covered with small black rocks, which are possibly crystallized sugar or another candy. Its flavor is unknown, as is who baked them. One of these cookies, still in its wrapper, was placed up for auction on eBay for $129.99 USD in 2011, although by that point it is reasonable to assume that this cookie was no longer edible, and no other such cookies have surfaced online.

Street Fighter 6
According to English voice actor Aleks Le in his YouTube video "LUKE SINGS TMNT THEME SONG (OFFICIAL) SF6", he stated that in February 2023, he had dinner with the game's director Takayuki Nakayama, who said that he and his team really loved Aleks' passion and watching at all the cool and funny things Aleks did with the character both in-game and online. Nakayama then asked Aleks if he could get Luke to sing a song, to which he replied: "Me? No, I don't know how to sing... But Luke? Even if he's bad..." Nakayama's idea was to recruit Aleks to sing the lyrics to a new arrangement of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song, arranged by CAP-JAMS to promote Street Fighter 6's TMNT DLC. Aleks commented that this performance was his first time trying to sing and that his vocal coach for the recording sessions was Jason Miller, who provided vocals for the song "Rules of Nature" from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
