The first video game about Genre change was released in 1987.

Konami, Nintendo and Sierra On-Line has published most of these games

This should only be used for the first game in a sub-series or similar and not for the whole sub-series (subsequent games in a sub-series should be considered in relation to the first game in the sub-series, not the parent series).

This is likely an attempt from the developers/publishers to broaden the consumer base interested in a franchise.
