* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'', the third games in both the [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquer3TiberiumWars Tiberium series]] and the [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 Red Alert]] series used a 3D engine. Also, if you consider ''Dune 2000'' as a separate game instead of a remake of VideoGame/DuneII (which was actually the first game, but that's a different trope), then VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune counts as well.

There's also a more meta example involving ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals Generals]]'', the first fully-3D RTS in the series which started a third continuity to ''Command & Conquer''. Also, if you consider ''Dune 2000'' as a separate game instead of a remake of VideoGame/DuneII ''VideoGame/DuneII'' (which was actually technically the first game, but that's a different trope), being entirely unrelated to the [[VideoGame/Dune1992 other]] ''Dune'' game from 1992), then VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune counts as well.

* The 3DS itself, if you take the DS as the first and DSi as the second (and dismiss the Lite and XL as revisions).

* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Xrd'', kinda. It uses 3D models to imitate 2D sprites and is the third "X" game in the series, though it's technically the fourth game since the original ''Guilty Gear'' didn't use an X in the title, and 6th if you count ''Isuka'' and ''Overture''.
* Semi-subverted with ''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}'', who has a game called ''Rayman 3D'', a 3DS UpdatedRerelease of ''VideoGame/{{Rayman 2}}'', which is arguably the last one you'd expect from that title.
* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', anyone? The first two and their expansions were isometric.
* The first two ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires'' games were barely isometric, while the third blew away it's competition in the 3D graphics part.

** Played straight with Sonic 3. While it wasn't a 3D game, the title screen actually used pre-rendered 3D as opposed to the pixel art tile screens in the first 2.
** And 3D Blast still plays with it, as it's the third Sonic game outside the numbered series.

%%* ''RailroadTycoon''.
* ''RollerCoasterTycoon 3'' was in full polygonal graphics, unlike the first two games. It even allowed to ride a coaster in first-person view.

For a period in the Eighties, it was not uncommon for the third film in a series to be released [[ThreeDMovie in 3D]]. With the current flood of 3D film releases, this has once again become common practice. It may or may not also be [[SequelGoesForeign set in a foreign country]].

* Subverted with the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' franchise. While there are two primary games in the form of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D'' is not part of the sequence. It's instead more of a GaidenGame on the Nintendo3DS, while the actual third game is simply ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII''.
