what are some cancelled retro games you wish had came out, or would love for a prototype to see the light of day?
the Duke Nukem leak reignited the glimmer of hope. i'm still waiting on that 90% complete build of Resident Evil 1.5 to drop some day in an official capacity

Sonic has a lot of cool prototypes. Sonic 16, Treasure Tails, the infamous Sonic 2 Beta, Sonic Crackers before it became Chaotix

But of course the only one that ever gets brought up is X-Treme, never mind that Chaotix and Adventure both probably have Saturn builds lying around somewhere

I think this game could have blown the survival horror genre out of the water. The visuals looked incredible, though they may have been downgraded, probably, in the official release. The atmosphere was great, and I would've been okay with a new twist with something more paranormal. Loved the over the shoulder combined with tank controls, I think that idea is great. Shame we never got it.

I've checked a tons of content, videos, screenshots, interviews, concept arts, etc

There is no reason to believe the game would have been any different (everything we know from the final game seems to have already been there or at least planned), EXCEPT from two things:
- the N64 version was colourful, while the art direction in RE0 GC is "shit-piss-puke rainbow wrapped into a red carpet"
- Gameplay, that is to say gunplay, controls, etc would have been identical to RE2. All the videos show models and their animations straight out of RE2

These two points would be improvements, especially the later. RE0 really suffers from long animation cycles with tons of frames which impact gameplay negatively, while with RE2 models/animations it would have been just as tight as RE2.

Ura Zelda and Earthbound 64 are the only ones I give a shit about desu. Ura Zelda is particularly tantalizing because we know it's 100% complete and just sitting in Nintendo's archives. All it would take is one little leak but nobody's ever managed to do it in all these years. And of course Nintendo will never tell us shit about Ura Zelda because they're retarded assholes. It's the holy grail.

Just by virtue of being an N64 exclusive RE, it would have had more cool factor. Zero on GC got to play second fiddle to both REmake and RE4, so no one gave a shit.
There's a chance it would have had item boxes, and pretty regular RE gameplay too, since those changes in Zero were very much a response to the notion that the RE formula was getting old by that point.

REmake isn't the original trilogy, it came out 6 years after the first game released, as well as after 2, 3, CODE:Veronica, and 3 spin-off games.
It also does not have involvement from MULTIPLE important people in RE1's development such as Fujiwara (the developer of Sweet Home), Iwao (the guy who decided on what all the core elements of RE1 would be), and Kamiya. It is far from being part of the "original trilogy", even ignoring the glaring visual difference, the various gameplay differences, how almost everything REmake adds is never referenced, or how CODE:Veronica, the mainline game that you have to play if you want to know what happens to Chris and Claire, expects you to have played the original RE1.

Crackers (actually meant to be Clackers) was developed on the Genesis and was being worked on in mid-1994, right after Sonic 3 (but before S&K). By December, Sonic and Tails were removed, and it was renamed to Chaotix and moved to the 32X. Not sure where the Saturn version fits in, but maybe it was intended to be a simultaneous release with the 32X version.

There were -three- "Kirby for Nintendo GameCube" (commonly abbreviated Kirby GCN) projects. The one shown at an E3 got the most coverage back in the day, and was basically a four-player sequel to Super Star, with the plan to have a game menu reminiscent of it, but was supposedly primarily about Dedede stealing Kirby's Warp Star. Then after Air Ride, Sakurai (and Shimomura?) left HAL and the game entered development hell. An Iwata Asks reveals that two more versions were worked on from scratch before Return to Dream Land was cobbled together. One was a briefy-developed full 3D platformer that looked more like Blowout Blast with abilities. The next was a stylized, cell-shaded 2D platformer that had and upgradeable ability bar and treasures, which was likely developed for Wii since it was widescreen, but canceled in 2010. The apparent reason for the three cancellations was that they just didn' click together. Anyway, it's been discovered that Returns to Dream Land isn't the only game using their assets - dataminers digging through filenames concluded that some of the music composed for these games stretches at least to the 3DS era. Overall, at least two if them got far in development.
