** The side-scrolling ''Ys III: Wanderers From Ys'' was completely remade in a top-down 3D hack-and-slash format similar to that of ''Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim'' as ''The Oath In Felghana'', which was originally a [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] PC game but was later ported by NihonFalcom to the PSP, with that version receiving an English translation by Creator/XSEEDGames. XSEED later published the PC version in English through Steam.

** ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar'' has been remade several times, first as ''Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete'' on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation, then as ''Lunar Legend'' on the GameBoyAdvance, and then the ''Silver Star Story'' version was again redone as ''Lunar: Silver Star Harmony'' on the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]].

* Both ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' games on the GameBoyAdvance were remade and compiled into one awe-inspiring UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 game (''Super Robot Wars Original Generations''), featuring a host of new gameplay elements and rebalancing, much improved visuals and a host of additional story elements, including a playable teaser for the sequel - something ''nobody even knew about'' until the game itself announced it after the end credits.

** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'', a GameBoyAdvance game, was remade for UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 in the international version of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII [[NoExportForYou Final Mix+]]'' as ''Re:Chain of Memories''. The remake was eventually released in North America by itself (two and a half years later!), but alas, not in Europe or Australia.

* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' got an enhanced remake on the Wii in 2008 which featured motion controls for every elemental power and (sadly) removed the game's credits sequence because it contained the logo for Clover Studios, the game's original creators. In 2012 a remake was released for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 which featured 1080p full HD graphics and the Wii's motion controls.

* The ''VideoGame/CrashBandicootNSaneTrilogy'' had the [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot1996 first]] [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot2CortexStrikesBack three]] [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot3Warped games]] completely rebuilt from the ground up, since the original source code is out of date with newer technology. It also unifies features in all three games (for example, Relics from the third game can now be collected in the first two games), as well as having Coco Bandicoot playable in all three remasters, as opposed to only being playable in select levels of ''Warped''.

* Every game in the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' trilogy has had two remakes: one in ''Super Mario All-Stars'' and the other in the ''Super Mario Advance'' series (except ''[=SMB1=]'', which got a second remake in ''Super Mario Bros. Deluxe'' for the Game Boy Color). The ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld World]]'' [[VideoGame/YoshisIsland games]] and ''[[VideoGame/SuperMario64 64]]'' also have portable remakes.\\\
In fact, ''Super Mario 64 DS'' may set the record for the most [[SuperTitle64Advance console-specific subtitles/prefixes]]. It has "64" from the Nintendo 64, and "DS" from the Nintendo DS. Not only that, but the remake itself featured three additional playable characters, with Yoshi being the primary one to play as with their own unique abilities (you have to unlock Mario before tackling the ground level final sections. Luigi and Wario are optional though), some new or revised levels, and a slew of minigames and even a competitive multiplayer mode, requiring only one cartridge to play. It also used the touch screen as an improved analog stick, but this is now unnecessary with the release of the 3DS.

** ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' (also known as ''Kirby's Fun Pack'') for the SNES also contained a shortened remake of the Game Boy Kirby's Dream Land. Then comes ''Kirby Super Star Ultra'', a remake of this game, which not only adds new minigames, but four new game modes, including one where you get to play as Meta Knight, and one that's a remake of the first game's ''hard mode''!
