* ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'' was originally released in Japan for the {{PC88}} and {{MSX}}2 computer platforms in 1988. The original versions were pretty advanced for their time, but lacked voice acting and [[ObviousBeta were rushed for release]], resulting in the omission of the game's final act. The game was then remade as a Super CD game for the [[TurbografxSixteen PC Engine]] in Japan titled ''Snatcher [=CD-ROMantic=]'' in 1992, which was the basis for the localized UsefulNotes/SegaCD port in 1994. The game got further remakes for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation and UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn in Japan in 1996.

** ''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 [[SoCoolItsAwesome you get to play as Meta Knight]], and one that's a remake of the first game's ''hard mode''!

* The ''Creator/{{Namco|Bandai}} Classics Collection'' series [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin bundled three classic Namco games]], and then added an "arrangement mode" which brought new features and a story that their [[EndlessGame endless 8-bit counterparts]] did not have. The collections came in two volumes and were only released as arcade machines. One had ''Galaga'', ''Xevious'', and ''Mappy''. The other had ''Pac-Man'', ''Rally-X'', and ''Dig Dug''. However, ''Namco Museum'' for the [=PS2=], Gamecube and Xbox (released in 2001) did include ports of both the original and arranged versions of ''Pac-Man'', ''Dig-Dug'', and ''Galaga''. ''Xevious 3D/G'' also contained a port of the arranged version of ''Xevious'', along with the original, and ''Super Xevious.'' The arranged version of ''Pac-Man'', meanwhile, was included as part of the Game Boy Advance ''Pac-Man Collection'', and released on [=iOS=] as ''Pac-Man Remix''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/NocturneRPGMaker'' was originally made for RPG Maker 2000 and mainly used stock assets and the default battle system. The RPG Maker XP remake, ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'', uses more custom assets (though most enemies on the map still use stock sprites) and implements a more complicated sideview ATB system.

* ''VideoGame/TacticsOgreLetUsClingTogether'' was rereleased for the PSP where the game mechanics were rebuilt from the ground up and includes new artwork, orchestrated soundtrack, an ability to travel to different story branches which makes viewing the multiple endings easier, the ability to rewind turns to reduce the need to save scum and a post-game campaign.

** ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge'' has gotten one too. It also includes a commentary track by the three original ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' designers, TimSchafer, [[Creator/TelltaleGames Dave Grossman]] and Ron Gilbert, plus a concept art gallery featuring backgrounds made for the 1991 version of the game (including some that were cut to save disk space), as well as character design art from the brand-new high-res makeover.

* Games made by EugeneJarvis fit this trope nicely. Examples include ''VideoGame/{{Defender}} 2000'' for the UsefulNotes/AtariJaguar (programmed by Jeff Minter, the guy behind the classic VideoGameRemake ''VideoGame/{{Tempest}} 2000''), reimaginings of ''VideoGame/{{Robotron 2084}}'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} and UsefulNotes/PlayStation, and remakes of ''Defender'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{NARC}} N.A.R.C.]]'' for the [=PS2=] and Xbox. Unfortunately, the latter two were terrible, and Jarvis [[CreatorBacklash disowned]] the ''N.A.R.C.'' remake.
