Has a game series ever gone back to old continuity when a reboot failed?

Phoenix Wright kinda seems to be doing this. After Apollo Justice, they made AAI and then kinda just put Wright back to being the main character again.

I thought the 2008 reboot was the best PoP by far..

The only thing I didn't like about pop2008 was the repetition of the boss fights, other than that, it was my favourite as well. The art style/graphics were fantastic. But people have to moan about something so they chose the 'no deaths' thing. That never bothered me it was just like checkpoints in other games except you were back instantly instead of having to wait 5 minutes for the game to load back up.

Bomberman did it.


So did Metal Gear (kinda with Snakes Revenge).

Loved PoP 2008, it was a move in the right direction but need a bit of tuning, too bad Ubisoft completely forgot about it and went with AC games :S , now AC is like COD

I though PoP 2008 was great. Beautiful to look at and pure platforming with incredibly fluid gameplay. Combat could've used some work, but other than that a great game. The Sands of Time really was the only good game in that series. All the other ones were pretty
bad.

Snakes Revenge wasn't a reboot, it was an a non canon sequel.
