None of the other TT games have done this, but the TMI chapters will function as actual in-game MI style chapters, so it's not impossible that you may see items jump from one chapter to the next.
CMI had an interesting scheme where items you didn't need disappeared with the next chapter (such as when they shipwrecked on Blood Island). I forget if SMI or MI2 did this as well.
Jake at Telltale:
You'll be carrying some items from episode to episode. Probably not many superfluous ones, because that would be hard to track (impossible on the Wii, since we can't easily read save data from one episode in another), but there will be situations where you pick something up in an episode and don't end up needing it until an episode or two down the line, or it has multiple uses which come into play far later.
