->''You know what future historians will say about us, right? "There were two very different games called ''Wolfenstein'' released in the same twenty year period and the second was not, strictly speaking, a remake of the first. From this we conclude that the people of the early twenty-first century were taking the piss."''
-->-- Yahtzee, ZeroPunctuation

Coming up with a good title for a new work is hard. No wonder so many people just take the lazy way out and [[NumberedSequels just stick a number on the end]].

Of course, if you're ''really'' lazy, you could not bother with even the number, let alone a subtitle, and give the latest release in your series the same name as an earlier one- usually, the first installment, which will typically also be the series name. A variation includes (de-)pluralizing the previous title, or dropping the adjectives. Fans will typically give the later work a FanNickname.

Recycling titles became very common in mid and late 2000s.

This doesn't cover [[TheRemake remakes]], where the new work is explicitly a new version of the previous work. Re-imaginings, such as when a video game is released with significantly different versions on consoles and handhelds at the same time and with the same title, are borderline.

Often used when it might be embarrassing to admit how many times they've milked this particular cash cow. It may also be an attempt to bring in newcomers who [[ArchivePanic don't want to catch up with all the past installments]], since a title like ''Hero Spies IV: [[RevengeOfTheSequel Avenging the Aftermath]]'' sounds like it might leave non-fans lost.

See also SimilarlyNamedWorks, which is when two or more entirely unrelated works happen to share the same title.



[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' has two episodes named "Day One", the second of the first season and the first of the third season.

* ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' is the most overworked title around: it's TheMovie, the pilot episode, the ship, and the comic miniseries (later reprinted with the subtitle "Those Left Behind"). Because Fox owns the name ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', Joss Whedon seems determined not to use it for anything but the actual show.
* ''Film/{{Alien}}'', and then ''Film/{{Aliens}}''. [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd It makes sense. First there's one alien and now there's many aliens.]]
* The sixth ''{{Rocky}}'' film, ''Rocky Balboa''. As WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd pointed out, it sounds like they took the first film and added his last name.
* In Japan, ''Film/TheReturnOfGodzilla'' was "Gojira" just as [[Film/{{Gojira}} the original film]].
** The series also has entries titled ''Film/MothraVsGodzilla'', ''[[Film/GodzillaAndMothraTheBattleForEarth Godzilla vs. Mothra]]'', ''Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzilla'', ''Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzillaII'', ''Film/GodzillaAgainstMechagodzilla''.
** Other films with just the title ''Godzilla'' include ''Film/{{Godzilla1998}}'' (not part of any continuity) and ''Film/{{Godzilla2014}}'' (seems to be in the same universe as the original).
* The prequel to ''[[Film/TheThing1982 The Thing]]'' is called ''[[Film/TheThing2011 The Thing]]''. The videogame sequel is also called ''VideoGame/TheThing''.
* Only a borderline example, but the fourth ''{{Rambo}}'' film is technically the first to be titled just ''Rambo'' - the first film was actually called ''First Blood'', while [[ElectricBoogaloo the second]] was ''Rambo: First Blood Part II'' and [[OddlyNamedSequel the third]] ''Rambo III''. As pointed out by WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd, this has plenty of potential for confusion, since just the name "Rambo" alone can be used to refer to three of the four movies. At one point the fourth movie was going to be titled ''John Rambo'', following the same pattern as ''Rocky Balboa'', and while it ended using that title in certain foreign markets, it ultimately ended up being called just ''Rambo'' domestically.
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' ([[Film/StarTrek reboot]]). ''Star Trek'' is already the original name of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the first series]] and [[Franchise/StarTrek the franchise as a whole]]. The 2009 film is currently the only work in the ''Star Trek'' franchise to be officially known as ''Star Trek'' with no subtitle, as the series was retroactively renamed ''Star Trek: The Original Series'', and the first film had the full title of ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture''. Fans are calling it "''Star Trek 11''" or "''Star Trek 2009''" to differentiate it. To remedy this, some releases have called it ''Star Trek: The Future Begins''.
* ''[[Film/FinalDestination The Final Destination]]'', whereas the first film was called ''Final Destination''. ''The Final Destination'' is the [[SeriesFauxnale final]] ''Final Destination'', see. Subverted when a fifth film came out after this one, making it the single case of StoppedNumberingSequels in this franchise.
* Likewise, the third sequel to ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'' is simply known as ''Fast & Furious''.
* ''Film/TheMuppets'' is not to be confused with ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''. Good luck trying to use it in a sentence.
* ''[[Film/BatmanTheMovie Batman]]'', a film adaptation of the Creator/AdamWest [[{{Series/Batman}} TV series]], is not to be confused with the Creator/TimBurton movie also called ''Film/{{Batman}}''. To differentiate between the two, the Adam West film is usually called "Batman the Movie" (since it's based on the TV series), while the Tim Burton film is simply called "Batman".
** On a related note, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', is actually called simply "Batman". "The Animated Series" is simply used to avoid confusion between the previous two movies (and Adam West TV series).
* There was ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', and a movie in 2013 just called ''Film/TheWolverine'' (although it's apparently supposed to be a standalone film rather than a direct sequel).
* Several non-sequel movies in the Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles universe are just called "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" or "TMNT"; some TV incarnations do the same.
* The title of the 2011 film ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' is actually shorter than that of the 1977 anthology ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' and makes it seem like it should be first on top of being generally vague.

[[folder: Music]]
* A famous example is PeterGabriel, whose first four albums were self-titled, only being differentiated by their cover art. His US label got tired of it, and refused to release the fourth one unless he gave it a title, and he quickly thought of Security. It remained self-titled elsewhere. The first three albums are known by fans as Peter Gabriel I, II and III respectively, and the fourth is either known as IV or by its US title. Some also refer to the first three albums as "Car", "Scratch" and "Melt" in reference to the cover art.

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* There's ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' on the Genesis in 1991 (along with a mostly different 8-bit version of the same name), and ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' for {{Xbox 360}} and PS3 in 2006. The 2006 game was commonly referred to as ''Sonic [=NextGen=]'', although that has since fallen out of use in favour of ''Sonic 2006'', mainly due to the fact it's no longer on a 'next' generation system.
* ''VideoGame/BionicCommando'' - the arcade, NES and Game Boy versions were released in Japan under the titles of ''Top Secret'', ''Hitler no Fukkatsu: Top Secret'' (The Resurrection of Hitler) and ''Bionic Commando'', in that order. Only the third one could be considered a port, since it's based on the NES version, which was more of a sequel/spinoff of the original arcade version than a port. Later, Capcom commissioned the development of another sequel in 2009 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 simply titled '' Bionic Commando'' as well.
* Inverted in [[{{VideoGame/Okami}} Okami]]. The name "Ōkami" was first used by Capcom in [[{{VideoGame/Commando}} Commando]], whose Japanese name was Senjō no Ōkami.
* ''NinjaGaiden'' - The NES version in 1988, then on Xbox in 2004. Both have two numbered sequels, although the ones on the NES used Roman numerals and had subtitles. There was also the arcade game released around the same time as the NES game, as well as the Sega-published versions for the MasterSystem and GameGear, along with an unreleased MegaDrive version (all of them are completely unique games and not just ports of the same game).
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' - only outside Japan, where ''VideoGame/MetalGearGhostBabel'' (the GameBoyColor version released in 2000) was simply titled ''Metal Gear Solid'' in the west.
* ''[[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Mega Man]]'' (the original series): Differentiating the numbered NES and GameBoy titles can get a bit tricky. With the exception of the first Game Boy game, which was subtitled ''Dr. Wily's Revenge'', [[http://www.retrogamenetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/mmeshop.jpg all the sequels used Roman numerals on their title screens]], until Capcom began unifiying the title logos with [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/playstation/mega-man-8-anniversary-edition/screenshots/gameShotId,109013/ MM8]], [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/xbox360/mega-man-9/screenshots/gameShotId,341358/ 9]] and [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/xbox360/mega-man-10/screenshots/gameShotId,430520/ 10]]. Fan communities used Arabic numerals for the NES versions (due to the logos on the packaging, which designed differently from the in-game versions) and roman numerals for their Game Boy counterparts. This was never an issue in Japan, where the ''Rockman'' sequels on the Famicom used Arabic numerals and subtitles (e.g. ''Rockman 2: Dr. Wily's Enigma''), whereas the Game Boy versions were actually part of a side-series known as ''Rockman World''.
** The GameBoy VideoGame/MegaManX ports known as VideoGame/MegaManXtreme are called ''Rockman X: Cyber Mission'' and ''Rockman X2: Soul Eraser'' in Japan. Which makes sense, since they are more or less straight ported-down versions of ''Mega Man X 1-3'' with a new story.
* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' - the original arcade game, and the 1994 Game Boy version. Could be said to be a remake, since the first four stages of the GB game are based on the arcade, but the mechanics are changed and there's about 96 more levels after that. The GB game is generally known as ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong94''.
* ''Prince of Persia'' - first on numerous platforms in [[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia1 1989-1992]], then on Xbox 360 and PS3 [[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia2008 in 2008]].
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' - first on the NES [[VideoGame/{{Castlevania|I}} in 1987]], then on the N64 [[VideoGame/{{Castlevania 64}} in 1999]]. The latter tends to be called "Castlevania 64" to the extent that many people assume that's the actual title. Also, the Japanese and European releases of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLamentOfInnocence'' from 2003 had the subtitle dropped, leaving it as a third game just called ''Castlevania''. Moreover, ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaCircleOfTheMoon'' is also just ''Castlevania'' in Europe.
** In Japan, the games known in the west as ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania|I}}'' (the NES one), ''Vampire Killer'' ([=MSX2=]), ''VideoGame/HauntedCastle'' (arcade) and ''VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV'' (SNES) are all titled ''Akumajō Dracula'', as was the X68000 game later ported to the [=PS=] as ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChronicles''. On one hand, this clears a lot of ambiguity between what are practically five completely different games (not just ports of the same title) by making it easier to tell each game apart by name. On the other hand, this also obscured the relation ''Vampire Killer'' and ''Haunted Castle'' had with the series (since they did not carry the ''Castlevania'' moniker overseas) and caused the common misconception that ''Super Castlevania IV'' is a continuation of the NES trilogy rather than a retelling of Simon Belmont's first venture into Dracula's castle.
** In addition to the [=MSX2=] game, ''Vampire Killer'' was also the title of the Japanese version of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaBloodlines''.
* Borderline: The 2008 ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' game. While the first game in the series (from 1997) had a subtitle (''Turok: Dinosaur Hunter''), it was often just called Turok, which is of course the accepted series name.
* ''{{Shinobi}}'': The 1986 side-scrolling action game for the arcade, the 2002 [=3D=] action game for the PlayStation2, and a 2011 side-scrolling sequel for [=3DS=]. May also apply to ''The G.G. Shinobi'' for the GameGear, which was simply titled ''Shinobi'' on the American cover art (but still kept the original title in the actual game).
** Also applies to ''The Revenge of Shinobi'', which was the title of the 1989 SegaGenesis sequel to the original ''Shinobi'', and an [[InNameOnly unrelated]] GameBoyAdvance game released in 2002 to cash-in on the above-mentioned [=PS2=] version.
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' recycled the title of a 1991 MMORPG on the VideoGame/GoldBox engine.
* The ''SamuraiShodown'' games had a few [=3D=] games. These were, ''Samurai Shodown 64'' and ''Samurai Shodown 64: Warrior's Rage'' for the Hyper Neo-Geo 64 and ''Samurai Shodown: Warrior's Rage'' for the [=PlayStation=]. To avoid confusion, they are called ''Samurai Shodown 64 Part II'' and ''Samurai Shodown: Warrior's Rage''.
** In addition, there were two Samurai Shodown games for ''NeoGeo Pocket'': ''Samurai Shodown!'' and ''Samurai Shodown! 2'' (the exclamation marks are part of their titles).
* ''PunchOut'' has had ''three'' games called ''Punch-Out!!'' First is the original arcade game, second is the NES game, and third is the Wii version.
** ''Punch Out'' also has two sequel titled ''Super Punch Out'': the arcade sequel and the SNES sequel to the NES version.
* ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}''. Sure, the 2009 game doesn't have the "[[VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D 3D]]" in its title (not to mention the "Castle" from Silas Warner's [[CastleWolfenstein original Wolfenstein games]]), but still.
* There are no less than four distinct games titled ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', not counting ports.
** The 1998 original.
** The newest version of ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'' on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
** The US-exclusive [=PS1=] release, which uses the ''[=DanceDanceRevolution=] [=3rdMIX=]'' engine and uses songs from 1st through ''[=3rdMIX=]''.
** The 2013 arcade release, with the year sometimes appended as a FanNickname to avoid confusion with the original 1998 release.
* Similarly, the 2013 versions of ''Guitar Freaks'' and ''[=DrumMania=]'' are simply called ''VideoGame/{{GITADORA}}'', a common FanNickname for the long-running series.
* Rebellion Developments has made not one, not two, but '''three''' separate games based on the AlienVsPredator universe: ''Alien Vs Predator'' (1994, Atari Jaguar), ''Aliens versus Predator'' (1999, PC), and...''Aliens versus Predator'' (2010, multiplatform).
** And that's not counting the SNES and Capcom arcade versions, which are both titled ''Alien vs. Predator'' as well. Note that, unlike the above Jaguar game, this one ''has a period after vs''! That makes it completely different.
* ''ABoyAndHisBlob'' for Wii is a borderline example since it has no subtitle, but the original NES game had the subtitle "Trouble on Blobolonia". Still, the Wii version is usually referred to as ''A Boy and His Blob Wii''.
* Borderline: There was a Japan-only FMV game based on ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' simply titled ''Street Fighter II Movie'' (which was the film's original Japanese title). This is unrelated to ''VideoGame/StreetFighterTheMovie'', a fighting game released for the arcades based on the [[Film/StreetFighter live-action film]], or with the console game of the same name (which was released in Japan as ''Street Fighter: Real Battle on Film'').
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' has the [[VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles NES game]] and [[VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTheArcadeGame the arcade game]], both based on the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 first animated series]] and released roughly at the same time in 1989 (as such, the NES port of the latter was labeled a sequel to the former) and the 2003 multiplatform game by Konami based on the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 second animated series]]. The 2007 multiplatform game by Ubisoft based on the [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles CGI film]] is simply titled ''TMNT'', much like the movie itself.
** And then two games with the title of just "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" released in 2013 (based on the Nickelodeon CGI series) and 2014 (based on the film reboot) - both by the same developer and publisher!
** Three distinct games were released with the title "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters" at the same time, for three different consoles. The character lineups for each one other than the Turtles themselves were vastly different, the sprites, moves and stories were completely original for each one, too. In Japan, only the Genesis version was called Tournament Fighters, with the SNES version being subtitled "Mutant Warriors" (the NES version never released there).
*** The 1987 and 2003 animated series are themselves an example in America, but not in Europe, where the 1987 series was called Teenage Mutant HERO Turtles for censorship reasons.
**** The 2003 and 2012 cartoons are both called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles everywhere.
* ''NeedForSpeed: Hot Pursuit'' (2010) is a sequel to ''Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit '''II''''' (2002), itself a sequel to ''Need For Speed '''III''': Hot Pursuit'' (1998). Confused?
** Criterion Games seems to have a penchant for doing this with regard to their ''NFS'' entries. The ''NFS'' game for 2012 is called "''Most Wanted''", which is the same as the 2005 installment.
* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'': [[VideoGame/MortalKombat The 1992 original]] and the [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 the 2012]] ([[ContinuityReboot a reboot]]). Netherrealm Studios calls the latter "Mortal Kombat 9" informally, taking into account ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'' as the eighth game in the series.
* The ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' reboot by Ninja Theory is titled ''[[VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry DmC: Devil May Cry]]''. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Taking the acronym into consideration: yes, it's actually called "Devil May Cry: Devil May Cry".]]
* [[ElectronicArts EA]] has done this with ''MedalOfHonor''. The first on the {{Playstation}} in 1999 and then in 2010 on the {{Xbox 360}}, PS3 and {{PC}}.
* There are three different games called ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'': the original NES game, the Game Boy game, and the 1994 arcade game (which is sometimes referred to as ''Super Battletoads''). To make matters more confusing, the original game was also ported to the Game Boy under the title ''Battletoads in Ragnarok's World''.
* The ninth ''Film/{{Tomb Raider|2013}}'' game will be titled...''Tomb Raider''.
* ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'': the original 1987 arcade beat-'em-up and the 1994 Neo-Geo head-to-head fighting game [[RecursiveAdaptation based on]] [[Film/DoubleDragon the movie]]. There were also numerous adaptations of the former in various formats that deviated from the original, including an [=iOS=] version released in 2011.
* ''TwistedMetal'': 1995 [=PlayStation=] original and the 2012 [=PS3=] sequel to ''Twisted Metal Black''.
* ''SuperDodgeBall'': the 1987 arcade original, the 1988 NES version (which is technically a port, but very different from the original), and the rare 1996 Neo-Geo sequel.
* ''Operation C'', the GameBoy sequel to the NES ''{{VideoGame/Contra}}'' games, was simply titled ''Contra'' in Japan. However, the title is spelled in katakana[[note]]コントラ[[/note]] instead of the three kanji characters used in the arcade and console installments to phonetically spell out "Contra" in Japanese.[[note]]魂斗羅[[/note]]
** In Europe, the early console games in the ''Contra'' series were released as ''Probotector'', replacing the original human heroes with robotic counterparts. Three games in the series were simply titled ''Probotector'': the NES original (based on the first ''Contra''), the Game Boy version (based on ''Operation C''), and the Mega Drive version (based on ''Contra: Hard Corps'').
* Borderline example: The English version of ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken]]'' ("The Sword of Flame") is the only game in its series that is simply titled ''Fire Emblem'', as it was the first one to get an international release (it's actually the seventh game in the overall series and the second one for the GameBoyAdvance). Every ''FireEmblem'' game since the Famicom original (''Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi'', or "The Dark Dragon and the Sword of Light") has a subtitle in Japan.
* ''VideoGame/AdventureIsland'', the NES version of the Famicom game ''Takahashi Meijin no Bōken Jima'', has nothing to do with the PC Engine game ''Adventure Island'', which was released for the [=TurboGrafx-16=] under the name of ''Dragon's Curse''. However, they were both produced by Hudson Soft and both were remakes of Sega[=/=]Westone games (''VideoGame/WonderBoy'' and ''Monster World II'' respectively)
* ''VideoGame/AlienSyndrome'': the original 1987 arcade game that was ported to various platforms and the 2007 multi-platform sequel.
* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'': the original 1994 2D action shooter for the NeoGeo (that was ported to various platform) or the 2006 3D third-person shooter for the PlayStation2.
* Borderline: ''Rocket Knight'' is the fourth game in the ''VideoGame/RocketKnightAdventures'' series, which consists of the Genesis games ''Rocket Knight Adventures'' and ''Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures 2'', as well as an SNES game simply titled ''Sparkster''.
* ''VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack'': The original was released in 1995. It had its share of sequels and expansion packs, then it laid low for about eight years until a new one was released in 2011 with the same name as the original. Most fans just append "2011" to the name.
* ''Cobra Command'' was the title of two different arcade games by Creator/DataEast. The first one was an animated laserdisc game originally released in 1984 (originally titled ''Thunder Storm'' in Japan) and ported many years later to the SegaCD. The other was a side-scrolling shoot-'em-up released in 1988, with a NES port that same year.
* The seventh ''VideoGame/TestDrive'' installment.
* The [[Videogame/AloneInTheDark2008 fifth]] ''Franchise/AloneInTheDark'' game.
* ''VideoGame/MansionOfHiddenSouls'' is the title of both the Sega CD original and its Saturn sequel.
* ''VideoGame/SimCity''s first sequel was ''Simcity 2000'' after [[{{Trope2000}} the fashion of its time]]. The next followed logically with ''3000'', the next dropped the extraneous zeros, and the fifth incarnation was just ''Simcity'' again. ''VideoGame/SimCity2013'''s actual name is "[=SimCity=]", we call it "2013" because EA gave us no other names to use.
* The 2009 release in the ''VideoGame/BishiBashi'' series is simply called ''The [=BishiBashi=]''.
* The upcoming fourth entry in the VideoGame/{{Thief}} series (previously known as ''[[Letters2Numbers Thi4f]]'') is technically the first one to be called just ''Thief''. The original 1998 PC game was titled ''Thief: The Dark Project''.
* The upcoming third entry the the ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront'' series, developed by DICE and published by EA. TheOtherWiki has taken a liking to calling it ''Star Wars: Battlefront (DICE)''.
* Seventeen years after the last release in the series and ''nineteen'' years after the namesake it recycles was released, ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' for the XboxOne understandably did not dub its third installment ''Killer Instinct 3'' and instead opted for just the plain title.
* ''VideoGame/{{Strider}}'' could refer to: the 1989 arcade game by Capcom, the NES version released during the same year based on the Moto Kikaku manga, or the 2014 sequel to the arcade game developed by Double Helix.
** ''Strider II'', the 1990 Tiertex-developed home computer sequel to ''Strider'', is not to be confused with the similarly titled ''Strider 2'' (aka ''Strider Hiryu 2''), the 1999 Capcom-developed arcade sequel. The former was remade for Sega Genesis and Game Gear under the U.S. title of ''Journey From Darkness: Strider Returns''.
* The XboxOne's name is identical to what people were calling the original {{Xbox}} since the {{Xbox 360}} was announced.
* ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheTriad''. Wait, you mean the 1994 one or the 2013 one?
* Crytek's new version of the CryEngine is the fourth major version, but it will be dropping the number and be named simply CryEngine like the original, apparently to emphasize how different it is from the previous versions.
* Everything seems to indicate that the fourth game in the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' series will be named simply, well, ''Doom''.
* Both ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' and its [[MarketBasedTitle overseas title]] ''Puyo Pop'': the former could refer to a 1991 MSX2 / FamicomDiskSystem game and a radically different 1992 ArcadeGame, while the latter could refer to a 1999 NeoGeoPocketColor game, 2002 GameBoyAdvance game, or 2003 UsefulNotes/NGage game.
* A new official ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' game is planned for 2015, simply called ''King's Quest''. This will be the ninth official game and the first since 1998.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* The ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' franchise has used the title ''Transformers: Robots in Disguise'' both for the American title of [[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise a 2000 anime]] and a 2015 cartoon set in the same continuity as ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''. Between those two, there was a comic released call ''The ComicBook/TransformersRobotsInDisguise''.
* 2004's ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie'' is being followed by 2015's ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobMovieSpongeOutOfWater'', though all the publicity seems happy to refer to it only as "The SpongeBob Movie" and treat it like it is unprecedented.
