* NoExportForYou: Prior to HD Collection's version of ''Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner'', a [[UpdatedRerelease Special Edition]] of game was released in Japan and Europe, but strangely never to North America. The Special Edition featured some graphical and frame-rate improvements over the original game, new difficulty levels[[labelnote:*]](the Japanese version has an Extreme difficulty and a Super Hard difficulty in-between [[HarderThanHard Very Hard]] and [[NintendoHard Extreme]] mode, whereas the European version only gets the Extreme mode)[[/labelnote]], new cutscenes and battle sequences, an expaned Extra Mission mode, and sub-weapon tutorials for the VR Training. This changed though as the HD Collection includes the European version of the Special Edition of ''The 2nd Runner'' for the North American release.
** And there's the two [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition premium editions]] for the Japanese version of ''Zone of the Enders HD Edition'', which has ''two'' books instead of one from the Western release, and a Blu-ray re-release of the ''[[TheAnimeOfTheGame Zone of the Enders: 2167 IDOLO]]'' [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]] with the most expense of two packages.

Added DiffLines:

* PreviewPiggybacking: The first ''Zone of the Enders'' was widely known for its inclusion of the highly-anticipated ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', which was the biggest reason many ''Metal Gear Solid'' fans bought the game. History repeated itself in 2012 with the HD Collection of the series, this time bundling a demo of ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''.

** [[Creator/HoukoKuwashima Dolores]] once competed with [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Sakaki]] in high-school, became a [[MsFanservice sexy]] [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive ninja]], traveled with [[VideoGame/EternalSonata Allegretto]] as an archer, an [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia emotionless vampire hunter]].
** The games' English cast famously seems to be on the obscure/no-name side of the voice acting world. There is one exception, though -- Elena, who is voiced by Debra Rogers ([[Franchise/DotHack Mia]], [[VideoGame/TekKen Anna Williams]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam Karen Joshua]]).

* OldShame: Whilst not necessarily ''ashamed'' of the original game, the HD Collection's pre-release hype was all focused on ''The 2nd Runner'', with barely a word being said about the HD remastering of the original game; on top of that, the intro specially made for the HD Collection only focuses on the original game for roughly a minute and a half, with the remaining four minutes focusing on ''The 2nd Runner''.
** To make things even worse, the Hexa Drive patch on the [=PlayStation=] 3 version only addresses the frame-rate issues of ''The 2nd Runner'' and enhanced its visual quality to 1080p; the original game is left untouched. Granted the original ''Zone of the Ender''[='=]s frame-rate at the time wasn't crippled, High Voltage Studios only enhanced the games for 720p when these games were supposed to be in 1080p.

** ''Jehuty'' went through several name changes, from ''New Eden'' to names such as ''Exodus, The Whisper, Vision Divine, Lightning'' and ''[[OddNameOut Megadriver]]''.
** Similarly, ''Tempest'' had the names ''Faust, I-Vanvo, Epusutain, Vadourv, Devionario, Manonresco'' and ''Volpone'' before settling on Tempest.
* [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros Z.O.E's Music Debuted in Metal Gear Online]]: Some music from ''Zone of the Enders''[='=] soundtracks was reused in [[Franchise/MetalGear Metal Gear Online]]; most notably "Vivid Transparency", [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N6_mGzAvm0 heard here.]] This has led to a surprisingly large number of people wondering where someone got the notion that a Metal Gear track is from this game about flying, sword-fighting robots.
