A limited form of Coupled Games can be found in the pairing of Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion, which was released on the GameBoy Advance and GameCube respectively. Completing one of these games gave a reward in the other if the systems were linked together, in one case providing a new costume for the main character and in the other allowing players to play the first Metroid game.
Players of Sonic Adventure on the SEGA Dreamcast could find Chao creatues. While these could be raised and played with in the main game, they could also be interacted with as a separate game on the interactive memory cards (called Visual Memory Units) of the console.
