New Game Plus

Mithlas
The list author says: "Video games that include the ability to replay the game with what you've earned in your first play-through.

If you know of other games with this feature that aren't listed, please send a note/email with details."
Final Fantasy Chronicles: Chrono Trigger/Final Fantasy IV
Final Fantasy Chronicles: Chrono Trigger/Final Fantasy IV
"Chrono Trigger (for the Playstation) may just be the Super Nintendo version with animated cutscenes added, but every item, skill, coin, and experience point carried over. Characters have to be re-recruited but playing over-powered characters allows interesting alternate-endings to be unlocked. Chrono Trigger is attributed with being the game that started "new game plus"."
Chrono Cross - PlayStation
Chrono Cross - PlayStation
"Items, equipment, elements, and character growth carry over. Characters have to be re-recruited but return at last strength."
Ratchet & Clank - PlayStation 2
Ratchet & Clank - PlayStation 2
"The first in the series, all weapons and non-story items could be carried over into a "challenge mode" where enemies are stronger."
Ratchet & Clank Going Commando
Ratchet & Clank Going Commando
"The second game of the series with some of the most memorable characters, introduced the concept of "leveling up" weapons in addition to health. All weapons, health, and ship upgrades carried over into the challenge mode."
Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal - PlayStation 2
Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal - PlayStation 2
"Third in the series, the polish on the weapons and the rpg elements really begins to shine. Carrying on the best of "Going Commando", all weapons, health, and non-story items can be carried over into "Challenge Mode" where enemies are stronger but this time ammunition is easier to come by and the weapons can keep up."
Ratchet Deadlocked - PlayStation 2
Ratchet Deadlocked - PlayStation 2
"Given a more action-tilt than the previous games, weapons could level up more than any other existing game and the addition of various mods makes for fun fireworks. One of the series' gems."
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction - Playstation 3
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction - Playstation 3
"Weapons, devices, and experience carry over into challenge mode. Weapons get an interesting upgrade tree, but aren't quite as easy or fun to toy with as in Deadlocked."
Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time - Playstation 3
Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time - Playstation 3
"Sequel to "Tools of Destruction", this continues the familiar series action platformer. Money, weapons, and non-story equipment carry through."
Tales of the Abyss - PlayStation 2
Tales of the Abyss - PlayStation 2
"You have to buy back things like potions from a shop between play throughs, you can also buy Grade Point and experience multipliers; but you lose useful items like weapons and armor."
Suikoden 3
Suikoden 3
"Characters must be re-recruited but return with prior skills and levels. Money, skill points and items carry over."
Suikoden IV - PlayStation 2
Suikoden IV - PlayStation 2
"Skill points, money, and items in party and castle inventory except story progression items carry through plays. Characters have to be re-recruited, but return with all their skills."
Suikoden Tactics - PlayStation 2
Suikoden Tactics - PlayStation 2
"Characters have to be re-recruited in successive play-throughs, but will retain their levels, skills, and weapon level from previous runs. Skill points, runes, and gold is also carried from one game to the next."
Suikoden V - PlayStation 2
Suikoden V - PlayStation 2
"Characters have to be re-recruited, but like others in the Suikoden series rejoin with their abilities. Skill points, money, and non-plot items also carry over."
Front Mission 4 - PlayStation 2
Front Mission 4 - PlayStation 2
"Money and 'EP' for purchasing pilot skills carries through successive plays. Unfortunately: equipment and skills reset each time, though at least you receive EP back for skills purchased and money back for the parts."
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES - PlayStation 2
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES - PlayStation 2
"Items and Personas registered in a "compendium" can be brought into successive play-throughs, making things less tedious because you don't have to worry about missing skills."
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 - PlayStation 2
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 - PlayStation 2
"Items, personas, and stats can be carried over to successive play-throughs. Weapons and armor are lost, however."
Armored Core 2
Armored Core 2
"Mechs, equipment, and money can be brought into successive plays."
Armored Core 3
Armored Core 3
"Mechs, equipment, and decals can be brought into successive plays."
Final Fantasy X-2
Final Fantasy X-2
"The first Final Fantasy game to have a "New Game Plus" feature, allowing items and 'orbs' (classes) to be brought into replays. Sidequest progress was also tracked, so missed NPCs and adventures could be done on later plays to get the perfect ending. Plays very differently from other FF games, but taken on its own still a solid game."
Shadow Hearts
Shadow Hearts
"Experience, money, and items carry over from play to play. The weakest in the series in terms of gameplay and story, you can skip to Covenant without missing anything (in my opinion)."
Shadow Hearts: Covenant
Shadow Hearts: Covenant
"Experience, money, weapons, and items carry over from play to play. Being able to keep Strike Expands makes getting Ring Perfects much easier and fun, and there's a lot of customize-ability to enhance gameplay."
Shadow Hearts: From the New World - PlayStation 2
Shadow Hearts: From the New World - PlayStation 2
"Experience, money, and items carry over from play to play."
Makai Kingdom - PlayStation 2
Makai Kingdom - PlayStation 2
"Characters, money, weapons, and other items acquired from previous plays can be brought into successive play-throughs. Includes the bonus of being able to choose the Japanese dub from the start, but leveling to unlock everything is very tedious."
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories
"Characters, items, and money carry over. Leveling up characters and weapons is tedious and, if you're unlucky, can easily become frustrating."
Disgaea 3 Absence of Justice - Playstation 3
Disgaea 3 Absence of Justice - Playstation 3
"Characters, items, and money are carried over, but leveling up characters and weapons can be tedious."
Okami - PlayStation 2
Okami - PlayStation 2
"Items, equipment (except elemental-enchanted and some Holy Artifacts), money, and the bestiary are carried straight over. Most skills are kept, though some have to be "re-bought" they typically return with upgrades (like Fleetfoot automatically returning Counter Dodge)."
Valkyria Chronicles - Playstation 3
Valkyria Chronicles - Playstation 3
"All equipment, awards, research, and troop levels are carried into a Clear Game. You can re-play missions at will and videos can be skipped."
Wild Arms 5 - PlayStation 2
Wild Arms 5 - PlayStation 2
"Levels and Mediums reset, but non-story items including armor, ammunition, weapons, badges, and Dragon Fossils carry over."
Wild Arms 4 - PlayStation 2
Wild Arms 4 - PlayStation 2
