Sega Saturn Magazine was originally known as Sega Magazine,[5] which launched in 1994 and covered the Sega consoles available at the time, including the Master System, Mega Drive, Mega-CD, 32X and Game Gear. In November 1995, it was relaunched as Sega Saturn Magazine[1] and coverage of other Sega consoles was gradually reduced.

In addition to reviews, previews, and demo discs, the magazine included interviews with developers about topics such as the development libraries that Sega was providing them with, and would routinely cover topics of interest only to hardcore gamers such as imported Japanese RPGs and beat 'em ups. The magazine retained its title even after its content became chiefly devoted to the Saturn's successor, the Dreamcast, as the Saturn had been discontinued in Europe.
