* For ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', after two straight generations of no "third version", Game Freak's love of this trope returned with a vengeance with the announcement of ''Ultra Sun'' and ''Ultra Moon''. Unlike previous "third versions" (and possibly due to the time mechanic), it's split up into two games, but otherwise follows the same formula; the same basic storyline with modest additions and improvements, most notably armored variations of Solgaleo and Lunala.

* ''VideoGame/ExZeus'' had an updated version released on mobile platforms as ''[=ExZeus=] Arcade'', which improved on the visuals, added difficulty levels, and added online leaderboards.



** ''Doom'' has had quite a few of these. ''The Ultimate Doom'' was a commercial re-release of the first game, which included a fourth episode to bridge the gap between it and ''Doom II'' (for what little that's worth, given the [[ExcusePlot bare-bones story]]). Around the same time was ''Doom95'', a port of the engine designed to work with Windows 95, made in response to estimates stating that ''Doom'' was installed on more computers than Win95 was[[note]]as an interesting tidbit: the team that made the port was lead by none other than [[Creator/ValveSoftware Gabe Newell]][[/note]].

* ''[=ExZeus=] 2'' was originally ported to Windows 8 or later systems through the Windows Store in 2014 that was mostly a direct port of the smartphone version. An updated version was released in 2017 that slightly improved the visuals, supported higher native resolutions, added remappable controls for controller and keyboard, and does not require a Windows 8 or later machine to play it.

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuestMonsters Joker 2 Professional'' was announced less than 6 months after the original's release. This variant may hint at a US release, as the US release of Joker had balance changes that were not backported properly to the Japanese Joker game -- if they were making balance changes for the US game, they would have to rerelease those changes in Japan.
