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 satakore.com, 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 Satakore.com! 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 ;)
