Resident Evil 2 was developed simultaneously with Mega Man 8, although the latter was finished before Resident Evil 2 was completed. However, Sony Computer Entertainment America refused to grant Capcom permission to localize Mega Man 8 since it wasn't a 3D game. Capcom responded by threatening to make Resident Evil 2 a Sega Saturn exclusive game, which resulted in SCEA changing their stance and allowing Capcom to localize Mega Man 8.

Ironically, Capcom did work on a Sega Saturn version after the PlayStation version was completed, but the project was scrapped after support for the Saturn in the USA ended.
