* ''VideoGame/OutRun 2'' was finally released to arcades in 2003, though it was actually the fourth Creator/{{Sega}} ArcadeGame to have ''[=OutRun=]'' in the title.

Namespacing.
* Trying to arrange the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' in chronological order can get confusing. Birth By Sleep is the first Kingdom Hearts game by canon, despite coming out 8 years after ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'', which was the first released title. ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', the only game with a straightforward numbered subtitle, was neither the second game released nor the second chronologically (''KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' being both). The most recent game, ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'', while the direct sequel to ''II'', is ''not'' the long-awaited ''Kingdom Hearts III''. According to Nomura, ''III'' is to be release next after the HD remasters, and it will be the ''eighth'' game in the series (ignoring updated rereleases).

* An early episode of ''[[LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit Law & Order: SVU]]'' was called "Closure." In the second season, the victim from that episode was brought back as a vigilante. The follow-up episode was called "Closure 2."

** They were supposedly reluctant to use the title "Shrek 3," lest it create confusion with the short "Shrek 3-D" which was released in a box set with the first two films. Apparently ViewersAreMorons.

* The UrExample is probably Creator/SergeiEisenstein's ''Film/IvanTheTerrible'', which was released in two parts in 1944 and 1958. Coppola himself cited Eisenstein when arguing for ''Godfather Part II''; the studio dismissed this argument on the grounds that ''Ivan'' was a Russian film, and [[ViewersAreMorons no one had seen it]].

More of an example of Annual Title
* When CBS revived Goodson-Todman's ''Series/MatchGame'' in 1973, it was suffixed with "'73," as opposed to calling it "The New Match Game" (which some TV listings actually had). The year in the title changed accordingly each December 31st. (In 1979, NBC revived ''Series/{{Password}}'' as ''Password Plus''; [[WhatCouldHaveBeen they were going to name it ''Password '79''.]])

* The three Compile-developed sequels to ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' have puns on numbers. ''Tsū'', the Japanese word for expert, also sounds like the English word two; ''SUN'', when pronounced in English, sounds like the Japanese word for three; and the "yon" in ''Puyo Puyo~n'' means four.

* ''VideoGame/{{Gauntlet}}'' was followed by ''Gauntlet II'', ''Gauntlet: The Third Encounter'' and ''Gauntlet IV''. ''The Third Encounter'' is an oddball not only in title; it was only released for a handheld system, namely the UsefulNotes/AtariLynx. ''Gauntlet IV'' is actually the original game remade for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis.
to:
* ''VideoGame/{{Gauntlet}}'' was soon followed by ''Gauntlet II'', and the non-arcade sequels valiantly attempted to carry on the numbering. ''Gauntlet: The Third Encounter'' was released exclusively for the UsefulNotes/AtariLynx, while U.S. Gold and Software Creations were authorized to make the entirely different ''Gauntlet IV''. ''The Third Encounter'' is an oddball not only in title; it was only released III: The Final Quest'' for a handheld system, namely the UsefulNotes/AtariLynx. European home-computer market. ''Gauntlet IV'' is actually a remake of the original game remade for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis.
