* ''Franchise/{{Ys}} I & II'' (despite the title, they're essentially the first two games fused into one complete game) has seen many rereleases over the years, starting with the first version on Turbografx-CD, and then later on getting separate new versions for Windows [=PC=]s, PS2, DS and PSP. However, aside from graphical and audio facelifts, later releases would eventually also have updated gameplay to make them play more like modern Ys games.

* The ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series' first three games are [[IncrediblyLamePun guilty]] of this. The VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightTrilogy was released on the GBA only in Japan. Years later, a DS version was made of all three games, which were now released internationally. Other than remastered music, improved coloring on the sprites and an added case in the first game which made use of the DS's new features, all three games were more or less the same. Later, all three games were made available on WiiWare, with the only notable difference being that the player can point the Wiimote while shouting [[RuleofCool OBJEC]][[AwesomeButImpractical TION!]] But again, no other significant differences. It's now also on the Appstore (using a free-to-play model where the user must pay for each individual episode save for 1 and 2). Aside from improved graphics, again, no difference. Then all three games were released on the 3DS as ''Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy''. The graphics were practically identical to the iOS versions, but, once more, no difference.
** It should be noted, however, that with the exception of the DS updated version of the first game with the new case, none of these ports were made with the intention of making people buy the games again, but rather to have the titles still be in the market when their home consoles became outdated.

* Samsung has a tendency to issue UpdateRereleases of the preceiding smartphones after releasing a new model. The Galaxy S has the Plus model and whopping 3 dual-SIM revisions, S II has the Plus model, S III has the Neo model, the [=S4=] have the rugged Active version ''released in the same year'', and the [=S5=] has the Neo model again. The [=S6=] and [=S7=] is released in the normal, Edge, and Active model ([=S6=] also includes the larger Edge+ model). The larger Note devices suffer similar things: the Galaxy Note 3 was followed by a nerfed model called Neo with worse camera, display, and storage. Goes more blatant with the Note 10.1 tablet where the updated model is called ''2014 Edition''. Of note, other Android vendors do similar things as well.

The [=iPhone=] 4 was followed by the [=4s=] model, the [=iPhone=] 5 has 2 additional revisions [=5c=] and [=5s=], and the [=iPhone=] 6 (as well as the larger sized 6 Plus was followed by 6s. More confusingly, the third and fouth generations of [=iPad=] was marketed as "New [=iPad=]" and "[=iPad=] with Retina display".

** ''{{Prometheus}}'' kinda subverted by having deleted scenes, but not an alternate cut because Ridley Scott didn't want to do so. (given both ''Alien'' and ''BladeRunner'', a feat for him!)

*** Additionally, a true sequel (''Guilty Gear 2: Overture'') was released around the same time as ''Accent Core Plus'' (the new story in ''AC+'' leads into ''Overture'' in some aspects where Sol, Ky, and Dizzy are concerned). And a sequel to both that and ''GGXX'', 'Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-'' has now been released.
** And ''Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R'' was released in 2013.

* Arc System Works fell head first back into this with ''Guilty Gear''[='=]s SpiritualSuccessor, ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}'', albeit not at first.

* Arc System Works fell head first back into this with ''Guilty Gear''[='=]s SpiritualSuccessor, ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}'', albeit not at first. Like ''Guilty Gear'', each time the subtitle changes, new gameplay is introduced but they continue to use the same sprite artwork between each one.



** ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma'' follows in ''Continuum Shift''[='=]s footsteps. The original game came first, then a patch for the additional characters, and then finally a new patch given a full retail release.

* ''VideoGame/DoDonPachi'' has had no less than ''nine'' followups, all of them a MissionPackSequel at best. ''Creator/Cave'' in general has frequently done "Black Label" versions of their more popular games, with a few tweaks and occasionally some minor content additions
