Posted on Unseen64 - Regarding Saturn Tomb Raider II
Official reason from coder himself:
"The game is going to be PlayStation and PC only. Does cutting out the Saturn version allow you any additional flexibility?"
Smith: "Basically, that’s it in a nutshell. If we looked long and hard enough at it, we could have done another Saturn version, but I think we might have been compromising what we wanted to do on the PlayStation and PC. We’ve always said that the PlayStation is a good system to do what Tomb Raider does. That’s not anything against the Saturn, it’s just that the PlayStation does its job extremely well. There was no way we could gain improvement from the Saturn version because we couldn’t make use of things like Mode 7 floors. We viewed it as a situation that we couldn’t move it as far forward as we wanted to."
