The Biohazard Complete Disc is a supplemental disc bundled with the Japanese version of Resident Evil: Director's Cut: DualShock Version that is notable for containing official footage of the most complete build of Resident Evil 1.5 (the scrapped first draft of Resident Evil 2) ever shown by Capcom. On a less interesting note, it also contains downloadable save data for every version of Biohazard and Biohazard 2 released at that point, as well as Japanese-voiced versions of the live-action cutscenes from the first game that were unused.

Unused Graphics

There are English variants of the title screen, background and various UI graphics stored within the disc which are never used, suggesting that at one point Capcom was considering producing an English version of this disc to go along with the U.S. version of the game. They even went as far as swapping out the functions of the X and Circle buttons (in most Japanese PlayStation games, including this one, Circle is the confirmation button and X is for declining). However, the Japanese packaging artwork for the games are still present.

Speaking of which, the packaging artwork for Biohazard: Director's Cut: DualShock Version is loaded alongside the ones for the other games, despite never being used. It likely went unused due to the fact that save data from the standard version of Biohazard: Director's Cut are cross-compatible with the DualShock Version, rendering the need for separate save files for the DualShock Version unnecessary.
