I don't think the Saturn's fortunes change too much in this scenario. The main problem the system had was a lack of good games, especially first party games. The Saturn actually had a killer app in Japan early on which was Virtua Fighter. Consequently, the Saturn did fairly well in Japan. It didn't do well in the rest of the world, because they didn't have a game that other regions considered a killer app. What they really needed was a great Sonic game. A more interesting alternate reality would be if Sonic Mania was released on the Saturn back in the day. In that scenario, I think the Saturn has a fighting chance.
