* ''FireEmblem: [[FireEmblemAkaneia Mystery of the Emblem]]'' had this in a sense. It contained both a remake of the first and its sequel, though both were available from the beginning. In turn, its remake ''New Mystery of the Emblem'' contains remakes of the obscure ''BS Fire Emblem: Akaneia Saga'' {{Satellaview}} games as unlockable bonuses.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' games beginning with ''VideoGame/MarioKartDS'' began to feature 32 tracks. These tracks were divided into four "Nitro" Cups (the cups containing all-new tracks), and four "Retro" cups (containing old tracks from previous ''Mario Kart''s). While there are 16 retro tracks per edition, how many are from each previous edition differs.
**As the fifth ported version, ''DS'' has four tracks each from the SNES, four from ''VideoGame/MarioKart64'', four from ''Super Circuit'', and four from ''VideoGame/MarioKartDoubleDash''.
**''VideoGame/MarioKartWii'' brings back two courses from ''Super Mario Kart'', four from ''Mario Kart 64'', two from ''Mario Kart: Super Circuit'', four from ''Mario Kart: Double Dash!!'', and four from ''Mario Kart DS''. Many of the courses are modified to reflect the new stunt abilities.
**The retro cups in ''VideoGame/MarioKart7'' bring two courses from ''Super Mario Kart'', three from ''Mario Kart 64'', one from ''Mario Kart: Super Circuit'', two from ''Mario Kart: Double Dash!!'', four from ''Mario Kart DS'', and four from ''Mario Kart Wii''. Almost all of the retro courses have been modified in some way to incorporate the new underwater driving and/or hang gliding mechanics.
**In default form, ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' has 16 retro tracks: one track each from ''Super Mario Kart'' and ''Mario Kart: Super Circuit'', four tracks from ''Mario Kart 64'', two each from ''Mario Kart: Double Dash!!'' and ''Mario Kart Wii'', and three each from ''Mario Kart DS'' and ''Mario Kart 7''. As with the retro tracks from ''7'', those in this game feature altered sections that incorporate the game's hang-glider, underwater, and anti-gravity features. The DLC packages add an additional seven retro tracks (one track from ''Super Mario Kart'', ''Mario Kart Wii'', and ''Mario Kart 7'', and two from ''Mario Kart: Super Circuit'' and ''Mario Kart: Double Dash!!'') and nine new ones.

** 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.
