** In something of an inversion, ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' has the final boss fight from the [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood preceding game]] as the opening level (although it's referred to as "[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaBloodlines Bloodlines]]" in the English localization). Furthermore, the player's performance in the flashback level determines Alucard's starting stats and items.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII: [[UpdatedRerelease Final Mix+]]'' has a [[VideoGameRemake remade]] midquel given almost equal billing to the game itself, ''Re: Chain of Memories'', which takes the GBA sprite game and turns it into a full-fledged 3D PS2 game. However, that is a standalone release in America (and thus merely an remake), with Final Mix+ itself taking its sweet time coming overseas in the form of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 (containing a remake of [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth By Sleep]] due to the remake of the first game having Re: Chain of Memories).

* ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' has an example similar to ''Videogame/Left4Dead2'' mentioned above: Two levels from ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist'', being First World Bank and Slaughterhouse, were remade to accommodate the play-mechanics of Payday 2, and included for free as of the Black Market update. Owners of the Wolf Pack DLC for the first game also receives Undercover and Counterfeit. It should be noted that it is now possible to fully stealth First World Bank and Counterfeit.

* A subversion of this trope: ''Videogame/MassEffect2'' for the [=PS3=] was released before the Mass Effect Trilogy, and as such, there was no [=PS3=] port of Mass Effect 1. To make up for this, Bioware includes an interactive comic book that summarizes the events of the first game and allow the player to make decisions on important events to determine how some set pieces are arranged.
* Parodied with ''Videogame/DukeNukem3D''. The first level has an arcade cabinet that runs ''Videogame/DukeNukemII''. Interacting with it simply has Duke say [[ADateWithRosiePalms "Hmmm, don't have time to play with myself."]]
** However, this is played straight for the DOS versions released at retail. When installing the game, you have the option to install demos to other DOS games, as well as all episodes to ''Videogame/DukeNukemI'', and ''Videogame/DukeNukemII''.
** It does get parodied again with ''Videogame/DukeNukemForever'', where the first level is a recreation of the final stage of ''Videogame/DukeNukem3D''
