Sometimes the history around games that never made it out of the door can be fascinating, as we look back at what might have been if different decisions had been made. Rejected or failed projects often come back in different forms, but occasionally they're lost forever.

Unseen64 has teamed up with DidYouKnowGaming to look at some 'failed pitches' from Nintendo history. It's a summary video of sorts that retreads a few familiar tales, but also touches upon a couple of projects that haven't been mentioned in the past. A couple that are either new or missed by this scribe previously relate to an Art Academy 'all stars' idea, and an attempted Super Mario Bros. 3 PC port by two very familiar and highly regarded names.

We're still a bit disappointed that the Star Fox 3DS port never got approved...
