* The Wii's menu system (including the default channels and at least part of ''WiiSports'') is a Spiritual Successor to ''MarioPaint''. The music is too similar to be a coincidence, and the Wiimote works a lot like the old SNES Mouse did.

* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games set in the Ivalice universe (including ''VagrantStory'', which technically isn't a ''Final Fantasy'' game) are successors to Quest's ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' franchise. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', the first game in the Ivalice universe, was already a spiritual successor of ''Tactics Ogre'' in its gameplay. Not surprisingly, Yasumi Matsuno, the director of most of the Ivalice series, was also the director of ''Ogre Battle'' and ''Tactics Ogre'', as well as the script writer of ''VideoGame/OgreBattle64'', while Hiroshi Minagawa and Akihiko Yoshida were the illustrators in most of his games. After the release of ''Vagrant Story'', Squaresoft actually purchased all of Quest's assets and absorbed them into the company.

** The upcoming ''VideoGame/ShroudOfTheAvatarForsakenVirtues'' is the spiritual SpiritualSuccessor to classic ''Franchise/{{Ultima}} series'', and it's MMORPG offshoot, ''VideoGame/UltimaOnline'', being even developed by Richard "Lord British" Garriot, the ''Ultima'' series creator. Interestingly, you will apparently be able to control if the game will be a single player, few friends online, or a full-blown MMORPG experience. The setting of game is even called "New Britannia", the player character will be called the Avatar, and there are other, almost sequel-like nods to the old series.

** The ''Gothic'' series is already a SpiritualSuccessor to the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, with the future Piranha Bytes seeing ''VideoGame/UltimaIX'', and trying to do a better 3D ''Ultima'' game. The interactivity with the surroundings, life-like [=NPCs=] with their schedules, and many more will seeM familiar to fans of the ''Ultima'' series. The war with orcs, is even similar to the war with gargoyles from ''VideoGame/UltimaVI'', [[spoiler: with the orcs, like gargoyles being also revaled as a much more sympathetic species, that averts AlwaysChaoticEvil]]. [[spoiler: The Sleeper]] is also defeated in a similar way to Exodus. [[spoiler: both are defeated not in battle, but by destroying the things that bound them to reality. In Exodus' case, you insert 4 punchcards into slots in Exodus' computer interface, which overloads and destroys it, while in the Sleeper's case, you must stab the 5 hearts that anchor him in the Mortal Realm.]]

* ''VideoGame/HometownStory'' was made by Yasuhiro Wada, who is better known for making ''Franchise/HarvestMoon''. Its general idea is ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' [[RecycledInSpace with the player running a shop instead of a farm]], but the DatingSim aspect gets downplayed in favor of forming friendship bonds with all ''32'' main villagers.

* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' was [[WordOfGod apparently]] always designed to be a spiritual successor to the ''Franchisse/HarvestMoon'' games, borrowing many elements from them while also rectifying a number of common criticisms, such as the lack of a GayOption.
