Yeah, the Japanese library is something you don't aim for a complete collection of. Ever.

While the US and Europe got a few hundred Saturn titles, the Japanese library is something crazy like over 1500 titles!

Music releases, stuff like that Virtua Fighter CG Art Gallery series, oh my.

Least if you can't read Japanese the spines also have an English title in most cases..... :lol:

Gosh yes, the Japanese still probably hold a torch for the Saturn.

But my impression of over here was that the Saturn became 'a thing' for a little while and then seemed to vanish again rather quickly, much like the Dreamcast was briefly 'a thing' and also seemed to vanish rather quickly.

As I said though I shall keep a lookout for future news...

The thing is, a Saturn mini COULD have a killer line-up of (mostly) non re-released games that would make it a must-buy:

Sega Rally
Daytona USA
Fighters Megamix
Last Bronx
Shinobi X
Panzer Dragoon Saga
Burning Rangers
NiGHTS
Virtua Fighter 2
Shining Force III

I didn't bother adding the Virtua Cop games because a mini is never going to come with a gun.

And I'm sure there are loads of others I'm forgetting, tons more if you count third-party stuff. And how about those two Shining Force III translations?

But, as I've said, I don't believe Sega would ever commit the money, resources and hours to nailing Saturn emu, getting all of these fantastic games onto a mini and going a little bit further with SFIII translations or reaching out to third parties to get their games on it. I mean, I love all of this stuff but it makes no business sense.

I'd rather that they just cracked emu and started dumping Saturn games on PSN/XBLA/Steam.

Bollocks to all that
Wheres my GX4000 mini?
Amstrad will probably get round to it in five years' time. And it will be the size of a breezeblock.
A lot bigger than the real one?

It's a joke based on how big the original Amstrad computer was...

I know, but I felt it missed the target as the GX 4000 was small

You would have to include a Sonic game as at least kids will be like "IT HAS SONIC!!!" being their most profitable franchise and get a fraction of them picking it up at least, though that remains tricky. Sonic Jam would be my best guess unless the legal issues with Sonic 3 put a stop to that but at least that 4 extra games with a 3D hub thing, Sonic 3D is....Sonic 3D but at least it would be easy to access the Saturn exclusive features, and I don't think anyone would care about the mess that is Sonic R.

So it turned out to be a website celebrating Sega's 60 years...

So we've got good old Segata back officially, maybe in a force ghost like capacity.
