* ''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/CastlevaniaTheDraculaXChronicles The Dracula X Chronicles]],'' the PSP remake of ''Rondo of Blood'', contains both ''Symphony of the Night'' and the original ''Rondo of Blood''. The former has revised dialogue and an additional playable character, and the latter is fully translated to the west.

* ''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''

* ''Videogame/Doom3'' Collector's Edition for the X-Box included PC-perfect ports of Ultimate Doom, and Doom 2, complete with four player split screen multiplayer. All copies of its stand alone [[Main/ExpansionPack expansion pack]], Doom 3 Resurrection of Evil, also includes the first two games, plus the Master Levels of Doom 2.
** There is also Doom 3 BFG Edition that includes Doom 1 and 2. The X-Box 360 and [=PS3=] versions play much the same as their downloaded counter-parts, while the PC version uses the original wad files and makes it play just like how it did when it was initially released (sadly with no multiplayer support), and also included the campaign: No Rest for the Living. Thankfully, you can still extract the wad files and use it in various source ports to make up for the lack of multiplayer, and more.
* ''Videogame/Quake4'' Special Edition for PC included a second disc that includes ''Videogame/QuakeII'' and all its expansions. X-Box 360 owners have a similar deal: A faithful [=360=] port of Quake 2, playing exactly like its PC counter part, with the added bonus of four player split-screen, plus up to 16 players via a local area network. The only downsides are no expansions are included, no auto-aim, and no online play.
* New copies of [[Videogame/GearsOfWar Gears of War Judgment]] include a download code for the first Gears of War.
* [=PS3=] versions of ''Videogame/BioShockInfinite'' includes the first ''Videogame/BioShock''
* The X-Box One version of [[Videogame/RainbowSix Rainbow Six Siege]] includes the 360 versions of Rainbow Six Vegas 1 & 2, fully playable on the X-Box One.

* ''VideoGame/TimeCrisis Razing Storm'' for the PlayStation3 boasts that it includes the arcade version of ''Time Crisis 4'', which is essentially the same game as its individual release, only with Playstation Move support, and the complete story mode completely absent ([[ScrappyMechanic not that many people minded]]). ''Dead Storm Pirates'' (which isn't a precursor) was also thrown in for good measure.
* ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2 Limited Edition'' on PlayStation3 included the HD remastered version of ''VideoGame/DeadSpaceExtraction'' (being a prequel to the first game), complete with move support, and an additional difficulty level.
