Mega Drive Fan (メガドライブFAN) was a Japanese magazine which focused on the Sega Mega Drive. It started as a section in Family Computer Magazine in the first half of 1989, before getting spun out into it's own magazine. Initially a bimonthly periodical, it became monthly from the July 1990 issue. With the September 1994 issue the magazine's name was expanded to Mega Drive Saturn Fan in preparation for the upcoming Sega Saturn release. At the beginning of 1995 "Mega Drive" was dropped from the magazine's name to become solely Saturn Fan.
