Habitat II (ハビタット2) is a piece of Sega Saturn software released exclusively in Japan. It was a Saturn based game client for Fujitsu's "Habitat II" virtual world which itself was a licensed version of Fujitsu's WorldsAway virtual world launched September 1995. The service was initially made available online to Windows users in March 1996 and 4 months later the Saturn client was released. It is reasonably likely that this would have been cross platform so Windows/Saturn users would be able to play on the same server. It is completely reliant on the Sega Saturn Modem due to the client/server relationship and thus cannot function in the modern age.
