ActRaiser is the title of two games developed by Quintet for the SNES.

According to the producer of Enix America[1], Soul Blazer is set in the same fictional universe of Actraiser 1 & 2, but Illusion of Gaia is in a separate one. Still, he also defines the latter as the spiritual successor of Soul Blazer, because of the similar gameplay.

ActRaiser 2 drops the city-building part from its predecessor, and it was a commercial failure. A later game, Solo Crisis, resumes the city-building from the first game, and indeed many action commands are the same. Of course the new game also introduces several innovations.

Terranigma and The Granstream Saga are considered sequels of Illusion of Gaia.
