Yoshi's Island was originally meant to be a 1991 video game adaption of The Shining. It went through so many development changes that the only evidence of its origins in the final product was some snow levels.

The production of many Sonic the Hedgehog games have been delayed by the difficulty of trying to convert Miles Prowers speed to metric
The original plan was to have Sonic's partner be a one-tailed fox by the name of Kimberly Prower. This fell through when the American side of STI complained about a girl being playable in their boy's game the Metric system.

This led to Miles Prower happening. He became Tails when Yamaguchi accidentally drew a second tail while designing him.

The "Shining" series was originally conceived as a video game version of Stephen King's book of the same name. While most of the source material was scrubbed out before Shining in the Darkness's release, and entirely by the release of Shining Force, Sega still pays King for the use of the name for each game. This financial licensing burden has contributed to a slower release cadence for the series than might otherwise be expected.
