    Seeing as there's some games that were re-released with more features, I think it is a good idea to have a list of them.

    List:

    1. Soul Sacrifice / Soul Sacrifice Delta
    2. Toukiden: The Age of Demons / Toukiden Kiwami
    3. Ragnarok Odyssey / Ragnarok Odyssey ACE
    4. Valhalla Knights 3 / Valhalla Knights 3 Gold
    5. Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2012 / Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2012 Ketteiban
    6. Deception IV: Blood Ties / Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess
    7. BlazBlue: Chronophantasma / BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend
    8. BlazBlueContinuum Shift / BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend
    9. Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax / Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition
    10. God Eater 2 / God Eater 2 Rage Burst

    Question: do you have both versions of these games in your collection or only the enhaced versions?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. Soul Sacrifice / Soul Sacrifice Delta

    Soul Sacrifice Delta adds new content to the previously released Soul Sacrifice. The game is available in NA and EU exclusively on the PSN store for download but a physical release in english was sold in Hong Kong.
    While Soul Sacrifice Delta borrows heavily from the original game, there are plenty of new additions to the combat mechanics.

    Combos:

    You can now use combos to deal more damage and/or avoid getting hit easier. For example: If you use the Falcon Feather (which turns your dodge roll in a teleport spell), you can use any weapon offering in conjunction with that. Attacking right after teleporting will cause your character to use the weapon instantly.

    Weather:

    During some fights, the weather will change. It can happen because of location, spell overloads, bosses or just at random.

    Locations and obstacles:

    Some locations now have hazards like wind gusts and pulling spheres. Other will have obstacles that can be triggered by both the players and the boss. This can be a platform that will rise (permanently) and serve as higher ground. In other locations, a giant beanstalk will grow out of the ground and serve as a healing tool for the boss.

    Factions:

    In the game, you can join with one of three factions: Sanctuarium, Avalon and Grim. These are all based on the 3 choices you have for every defeated creature in the game: Save, Sacrifice and Fate respectively. However, if you choose to obey the faction you are bounded to, you will not only get more experience from each creature, you will also get bonus offerings at the end of the pact, save for the Grim faction. Grim doesn't rank their sorcerers. Instead, they get random bonuses.

    Death:

    Just like in the original game, if another player sacrifices you, or you chose death right after being knocked out, you will die and become a ghost. As a ghost you can still touch enemies to lower their defense and touch players to raise their attack. However, unlike in the original, you can use the offerings of the locations to help the other players who are still alive. You can use weapon offerings just as you normally would, use armor offerings to distract the boss, pick up offering recovers and give them to a live player, and use health offerings to heal another player. You can also possess players, which locks the camera on them and this is used to heal them or recover the offerings.

    New Features:

    Soul Sacrifice Delta feature lots of new content. One of the most notable is the new Grim faction. The Grim faction gets its own story arc, albeit the shortest of the lot. There are also new monsters, being affiliated with a 'fairy tale' theme (inspired by the Brothers Grimm, including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and Snow White). There is also a new section in the portraiture that lists information on offerings and the quests where they can be acquired.

    A new Combo system has been included that allows the combination of certain offerings. The sacrifice/save system has been completely overhauled; with results of each becoming faction dependent. A new "Fate" option has also been added as an alternative to sacrificing or saving. Depending on the Faction that the player is aligned with, Save, Sacrifice and Fate's affects on the player are as follows:

    As a Sorcerer of Avalon:
    • Save: Restore health
    • Sacrifice: Renew offerings
    • Fate: Speed boost
    As a Sorcerer of Sanctuarium:
    • Save: Renew offerings
    • Sacrifice: Enhance magic
    • Fate: Speed boost
    As a Sorcerer of Grim:
    • Save: Restore health
    • Sacrifice: Enhance magic
    • Fate: Renew offerings
    The customization of characters has been expanded, being now able to choose torso and legs armor separately. Also a new store has been created, allowing users to buy "rumors" and new apparel.

    The Right arm screen has also been changed, including more options, particularly a new aesthetic option that isn't tied to the palm, allowing more freedom of visual customization and resonance where two sigils that work together create an increased boost.

    You can also perform a Rite of Transmutation. This is when you max your stats to 100 (50/50, 99/1 etc.) and is essentially a respec. You then get a heart sigil which you can choose of varying effects depending on variables like Faction, arm type, etc. When done, a new Sigil Menu section opens, allowing you to add as many sigil on your heart as you've done the Rite. Rumor is up to 99, though there is no evidence as of yet. The Heart sigils give massive stat boosts. You also get a XXL xp boost

    Endings:

    There are also two new endings depending on your choice after the final fight with Magusar.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    2. Toukiden: The Age of Demons / Toukiden Kiwami

    Players who haven't played the first game can still experience the story scenarios in this entry; Kiwami's new scenarios begin in chapter 8. The general gameplay returns with the following known changes.

    Slayers can use a team attack called "Onichigiri Kiwami" (鬼千切・極) to destroy multiple demon parts in one hit. It can be used once the new group "Unity Gauge" (共闘ゲージ) has been filled by either:
    1. attacking the same target/body part with multiple party members.
    2. purifying fallen demons/broken body parts with multiple comrades.
    3. casting a group buff. Taunt adds to the gauge.
    4. reviving fallen allies.
    At least two Slayers must be adjacent to one another for the combination attack ([​IMG] + [​IMG] when conditions are met). The Unity Gauge is designed to build at a slower rate than individual Weapon Gauges to avoid overlapping the techniques.

    Players in single player mode can order their NPC allies.
    • Attack (攻): orders ally to use everything they have to be offensive. Will not heal themselves.
    • Charge (任): default AI. Character has balanced attack and defensive movements.
    • Assist (援): uses individual's skill set to focus on healing and support abilities.
    • Gather (集): selected comrade rushes towards the protagonist's side, making it easier to launch Onichigiri Kiwami.
    AI has been polished for both Mononofu (slayers) and Oni (demons). AI Slayers now vocally inform the player when the Unity Gauge is filled and when a giant demon has been completely stripped of parts. The number of Oni have doubled. Returning hunting grounds have a distinct area added to them and a third difficulty level (Kiwami).

    Weapons:

    New weapons so far include the spiked club, naginata, and rifle. Over 1,000 weapon models have been added. Over 100 new armor sets have been added. Over 100 new Mitama (souls) are available.

    Tenko can equip a Mitama before leaving base and may randomly use its abilities to assist the player's team if they are in the same area. The player has to locate and contact it on the map for it to follow the party. When attacked by demons it teleports away for a few seconds. A new mood parameter affects its likelihood of retrieving rare goods. Players may choose to equip it with decorations to increase its findings or improve their pet's mood with food. Give it a meal for a high morale boost, dumplings to alter fur color, and candies to change the tone of its voice. Tenko related goods can be found at the Shop.

    Locations:


    Utakata Village has aesthetically changed to reflect the autumn season. Slight adjustments have been made to its facilities:
    • Yuu may randomly offer one-time emergency missions. Mission details will be unknown and the demons will be tougher, but the loot is often better than normal missions. Any giant demon, including multiplayer exclusives, can be challenged.
    • Visit Shuusui to fight in randomly generated infinite or special missions. Infinite missions feature rounds of only giant demons which start off very weak but slowly boost their strength as more are defeated. These missions dramatically increases Mitama drop rate. Demon specific materials can only be collected from player avatar finishing blows; NPC Slayer kills nets common materials from any broken body part/demon corpse. Shuusui rewards victorious teams with haku and strengthening steel based on their progress. Any giant demon killed during these sessions count for town requests.
    • Shuusui's encyclopedia keeps all changes to character biographies and includes elemental and weapon weaknesses for giant demons.
    • A reserve Slayer can be sent away on a separate material gathering mission. Each character has their item rarity preferences.
    • The prayer box near the standard village exit for missions has been simplified to 100 haku (possible failure of acquiring a skill) and 500 haku (always successful) payments; later upgrades changes payments to 300 haku and 1,000 haku respectively. Players can select a specific category (attack, defense, etc.) for their skill before praying, and multiple prayers can upgrade it to include more categories. Multiplayer skills have been added.
    • Mitama can be equipped before entering the cleansing area. Players can select who they wish to see bathing in advance once the protagonist has reached a high friendship rating with a character. Both characters reward the player with one-mission-skills after the bathing.
    • Blacksmith uses Soul Steel to upgrade weapons and armor. These metals can instantly upgrade any phase of a weapon's development without interfering with an equipment's branching upgrades.
    • The Sacred Tree has additional development phases.
    • Bulletin board now keeps a history log of Tenko and mission data.
    • The outskirts of Utakata Village is a new hunting ground.
    Save data:
    Save data from the first game and the experience trial can be transferred to Kiwami. Players can additionally obtain various items and armor sets depending on the degree of their completion. PSP save data can be converted for a PS Vita through a computer or the PS3 network. Downloadable content from the original game carries over with save data.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3. Ragnarok Odyssey / Ragnarok Odyssey ACE

    Among a new episode set after the game’s ending, and all the download quests from the original game, the game will also feature a host of new elements. Find these additions detailed below.

    Music:
    • Composed by Kuma Tanioka
    Monster:
    • Niizuegg (ニーズヘッグ): A black dragon. In addition to biting and scratch attacks, it can also breath strongly.

    • New cards have been added.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4. Valhalla Knights 3 / Valhalla Knights 3 Gold

    While the original Valhalla Knights was translated into english and saw a physical release in the US, the enhaced version called "Gold" remains a japanese exclusive... with the game being completely in japanese. Xseed said that they have no plans to bring it to the West.

    New Features:

    This version features additional story parts, improved load times and battle speed as well as new characters.

    Save data:

    The game is compatible with your old save data from the original Valhalla Knights game.

    Locations:

    In Valhalla Knights 3 Gold, the Red Light District - where players can recruit female party members along with side-quests - will be getting a new facility called “Erotica Heaven”.

    Characters:

    The enhanced version of the game will be adding two new races of Angels and Demons.

    Also, in addition to the already existing 20 job classes such as Ninja and Amazoness, they’ll be adding Gunner and four other classes to the game.

    Multiplayer:

    When Valhalla Knights 3 was released by Xseed Games outside of Japan they included the online multiplayer option, unlike the original Japanese version which only featured ad-hoc connectivity. In Valhalla Knights 3 Gold, Japanese players will finally be able to play via WiFi, along with the newly introduced co-op and versus modes.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5. Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2012 / Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2012 Ketteiban

    All I know is that the word "Ketteiban" means definitive edition, so this version has to have some extra content and/or fixes. Can't find any info about it on the internet though.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    6. Deception IV: Blood Ties / Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess

    This upgraded version adds a new protagonist, brings back past protagonists as villains, and a Quest Mode that features over 100 new challenges.

    Characters:

    In addition to bringing back characters like Millennia, Allura, and Reina from past Deception games (and Trapt,) Deception IV’s The Other Princess upgrade will also reintroduce traps from past games such as the Suezo, Genocide Eye, and more.

    For the first time in the series, the protagonist will get to directly attack enemies. So that means she’ll be able to kick enemies into traps, or even stomp on enemies that have already fallen to the ground, just in case the traps weren’t enough.

    Quest Mode:

    The story mode from Blood Ties will be available as a bonus, but the main one will be the Quest Mode, this time around. As previously reported, the Quest Mode features a bunch of new challenges, and this is also where you’ll face off against past protagonists.

    Deception Studio:

    A new feature called the “Deception Studio” will let you edit characters and missions. By using acquired parts, you can create enemies and give them their own names, so you’ll pretty much get to make your own quest with custom characters and enemies.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    7. BlazBlue: Chronophantasma / BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend

    Chronophantasma Extend features an extended version of the story from BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. It features the playable inclusion of Celica A. Mercury, as well as the reintroduction of Lambda -No.11- as a standalone playable character. There are also several gameplay changes kept over from the 2.0 update of the Arcade version of the original Chronophantasma. There is cross-platform connectivity between the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game, however, the PS Vita version is incapable of this.

    All DLC content returns, with the exception of voice packs, which still remain unknown. All previous DLC characters, BGMs and stages are present. The story contents, which were exclusives for PSVita, returned.

    Modes:

    Challenge mode has been changed in order to add Celica and Lambda's own challenges. Missions that consist of Special Attacks, Distortion Drives and Astral Heat are moved to the Tutorial mode. Every character has 20 missions in Challenge mode.

    Items in Abyss mode has a "cost" parameter, which describes how many items a character can carry on them. Maximal "cost" value is 3, it can't be exceeded. Items have different "cost" value.

    There are additional story scenarios named The Rat, Determination, and Collision; focusing on Bullet, Kagura Mutsuki, and Kokonoe, respectively. A new story mode has been added that focuses around the events of BlazBlue: Remix Heart, named Remix Heart Gaiden. It is placed separately from other stories. There are eight additional gag reels, for Relius Clover, Amane Nishiki, Bullet, Azrael, Yūki Terumi, Kokonoe, Celica A. Mercury, and Lambda -No.11-.

    The formerly Japan-exclusive Library mode of the original game is included in the NA version.

    Network mode contains of 13 worlds. Two worlds are intended for PS4 version of the game. Every world has 10 lobbies, with maximum of 64 players in a lobby. Player Match has a new function named "My Room". Player can design it using in-game currency, and invite friends to battle them.

    HUD:

    To differentiate from the original Chronophantasma like with the previous Extend game, the HUD's countdown timer for CP Extend is now in a magenta-color as opposed to a blueish one.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    8. BlazBlue Continuum Shift / BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend

    This extended version of BlazBlue Continuum Shift adds new modes and characters to the roster.

    Characters:

    This installment features Relius Clover as a brand new character, along with the arcade version's latest balance update from October 2011, along with much more re-balancing for all the other characters.

    Modes:

    Story Mode includes Calamity Trigger Reconstruction, a remastered version of Calamity Trigger's story mode, the Military Academy story Heart to Heart, the Sector Seven story that which is inherited, and stories for Makoto (Slight hope), Valkenhayn (Hunting Dog), Platinum (Scapegoat) and for Relius (Darkness Visible).

    Network Mode has also been tweaked and adjusted from the previous installment to include smooth online play and team battles, with options for 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4.

    Legion Mode is replaced by Abyss Mode that is a new mode ported straight from the handheld versions. In this mode, there are four levels – Depth 100, Depth 500, Depth 999 and Depth 99,999 (also known as Depth Infinity).

    Unlimited Mars Mode is a brand new mode exclusive to Extend. Player fights with ten Unlimited Characters. Rules are akin to Score Attack Mode.

    BlazBlue Quiz Mode is a new mode exclusive to the PlayStation Portable version.

    HUD:

    Like with Continuum Shift II, Extend also features a few aesthetic changes such as marking the patch version number above the match countdown timer, and changing the HUD color in order to distinguish between the past versions of Continuum Shift; CSII originally had a blueish dye to the HUD, while CS Extend instead replaces it with purple.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    9. Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax / Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition

    This ignition edition adds new characters, new systems, unlockables and balance updates for previously included characters.

    Characters:

    New characters include Quenser Barbotage (from Heavy Object), Emi Yusa (from The Devil is a Part-Timer), and Tatsuya Shiba (The Irregular at Magic High School) and new partner character Miyuki Shiba (The Irregular at Magic High School).


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    10. God Eater 2 / God Eater 2 Rage Burst

    God Eater 2 Rage Burst is an expansion of God Eater 2, adding new features and elements to the game. It was released in Japan on February 19th, 2015 and Taiwan on February 26, 2015 for PS Vita and PS4.

    Additional Story Content
    :

    In addition to the story of God Eater 2, Rage Burst adds a continuation to the story of Julius Visconti's fate. By exploring the Spiral Tree, there will be encounters with some Aragami never seen before alongside with new areas.

    Blood Rage/Rage Burst
    :

    By sliding an on-screen icon, numerous vows to select from and complete on a certain Aragami are shown. Upon completion, damage multipliers will be granted depending on the percentage accumulated alongside greater mobility (infinite HP, ST & Dash). Furthermore, a special theme will play.

    Variant Scythe
    :

    A new weapon type, Variant Scythes specialize in Sunder and are specially good at attacking foes from mid distances through their special actions; Round Fang, Cleave Fang and Vertical Fang.

    Skill Install
    :

    By accepting random occurences from a red indicator in the mission screen, it's possible to accept "Special Duties", which are rewarded with "Abandoned God Arcs". With these, it's possible to install these Arcs' abilities into equipment. Skill effect varies depending on their level and low levels could be improved into a higher level by stacking two of the same skill. This system is called Skill Install.

    Personal Ability System
    :

    By spending Ability Points (AP) earned from missions, it is now possible to unlock new Personal Abilities which consist of new skills and buffs to existing attributes of allied NPCs.

    Survival Missions
    :

    Introduced in the original game as a DLC pack, players can go through a series of missions to defeat Aragamis. 'Camping Scenes' take place between missions where players can catch a glimpse of the characters doing various activities as they take a break. Survival missions have a stat meter called 'Endurance', representing the number of spawns each member has remaining.

    Since you're including non-English released titles, you're missing the following off the top of my head (these are the originals listed);
    • BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma
    • Deception IV
    • Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax
    • God Eater 2
    • Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters

    Not sure if this counts, but Demon Gaze got a 'Global Edition' in Japan that added the extras from the international version and English voiceovers.

    I wouldn't count it, normally the Empires version in DW games have a bigger strategic component when compared to the rest of the series for that version.

    what about games like muramasa rebirth that got a complete edition release (japan... and i think it's on psn atm as well) that include the game + all dlc in one package? The game isn't exactly enhanced and you can buy the same experience separately i guess. Are you jus tlooking for games that have a potential change in experience between releases?

    Awesome thread! I didn't even know the difference in a lot of these games despite even owning some myself. I usually buy the regular copy and then sell it later if an enhanced version gets released. I figure if no one buys these games the first time then it's highly unlikely they'll get a release the second time around, so just voting with my wallet, I guess.

    Great list. I never realised the differences between each of the games.

    Soul Sacrifice has always interested me but it's hard to get a "new" physical copy these days and I wouldn't want to get 2nd hand as the network code will have been used. May have to eventually get from PSN.

    Normally, yes. But Tecmo Koei made so many upgrades (Toukiden / Toukiden Kiwami, Deception IV Blood Ties / Deception IV Nightmare Princess, Samurai Warriors IV / Samurai Warriors IV-II, Atelier Escha & Logy / Atelier Escha & Logy Plus, Ar Nosurge / Ar Nosurge Plus), that I'm very suspicious.

    Anybody with the 2 games who could confirm ?
