Alt. Versions - Collector's Point of View 

Sega Saturn - Author - Madroms
From a collector's point of view, having a complete collection is sometimes a goal. Everybody has a different definition of what a complete collection is. It could be: all the games released, all the games released and their variations, all the games and not for sale titles, etc.

A lot of Saturn collectors try to get a complete collection of games released in the US. Games only, not demos. Ok, it is not so difficult to achieve. Then, sometimes, the collection goes a little further than that.

Working Designs is well known in the US to have released some beautiful packages and translations of Japanese games. On the Saturn, they did the same. Particularly, they made some alternate versions for 3 games: Albert Odyssey released with 2 different CD artworks (and a revision of its manual), Magic Knight Rayearth released with 3 different CD artworks and Dragon Force released with no less than 4 different CD artworks and 3 different Backup RAM Cartridge stickers.
This is enough for collectors to try getting all of these alternative versions.

The best for you, Saturn collectors, is to know what to look for and we, at, try to help you.

You can already see what the Magic Knight Rayearth CD artworks look:

Sega Saturn Database - Magic Knight Rayearth USA [T-12706H] - All 3 different CD artworks

Same goes for Dragon Force:

Sega Saturn Database - Dragon Force USA [T-12703H] - All 4 different CD artworks and 3 different backup RAM cartridge stickers

(Albert Odyssey will come soon).

Great, isn't it ?
But having the possibility to track down these Alternative Versions is better. This is what we thought. And this is why you can also manage this part of your collection at! Browse directly to The Minor Revisions / Alt. Versions page to see all the games and demos that could be managed this way.

And just for our US Collectors, here is a less known alternative version, for the Not For Sale 3 Free Games Pack:

Sega Saturn Database - 3 Free Games With Purchase of Sega Saturn (Daytona USA - Virtua Fighter 2 - Virtua Cop) USA [81606] - 2 different packagings

There are also some Alt. Versions for Japanese games. We will show you soon some great stuff to collect ;)

Delisoba Deluxe 

Sega Saturn - Author - Madroms

Delisoba Deluxe JPN [610-6803] cover

Delisoba Deluxe is one of the most sought after "not for sale" title on the Sega Saturn and probably the most well known.

It is not the most expensive title (2-3 other titles are more expensive than Delisoba Deluxe) but nevertheless it fetches high price on the market. If you are lucky enough, you can find it complete in mint condition for about 450-500 Euros (55 000 Yens / 700 USD as of today) but you have more chance to find it for more, likely 750 Euros (85 000 Yens / 1 000 USD).

It is also not the rarest title of the Sega Saturn library. Despite its value, you can find it quite easily in Japan. On the "rarest scale", you can count more than 15 titles (games and not for sale titles) that are more difficult to get. As always, expensive does not mean rare.

Delisoba Deluxe (which stands for Deliver Soba), developped by Cave, is a "game" given away at the Tokyo Friend Park II TV-show made by TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System). In this show, contestants have to complete a certain amount of mini-games, one of them being Delisoba. This is "a two player game in which one player races to checkpoints in a video game to deliver soba in a set amount of time, while the other sits at the back and holds the soba to be delivered. If the player crashes into an obstacle in the game, the players on the seat will also feel the impact and drop the delivery they are holding, simulating what occurs in the video game" (description found on the internet on different websites, original publisher unknown).
Delisoba Deluxe for Sega Saturn is the remake of this mini-game.

Some years later, the Delisoba mini-game has been updated and has been named Delisoba Gold. Here is the official page at

You can find some videos of the actual TV-show on Youtube. Here are 2 of them showing Delisoba mini-game:
- Delisoba
- Delisoba Gold

For the first time on the internet (in my knowledge), here are some screenshots and a video (Youtube + downloadable high quality) showing Delisoba Deluxe in action:,,610-6803,,Delisoba-Deluxe-JPN.html

This is probably a big news for a lot of you, and I am happy to share this. But I assure you, you must wait for something BIGGER in some weeks ;) For now, enjoy the show!
