The Japanese edition of Sega Magazine (セガマガジン) was a Sega-branded magazine which covered several of their business interests during the 1996-97 period, including (but not limited to) the Sega Saturn, Model 2 and Model 3 arcade games, and amusement centres such as Joypolis. It was officially licensed by Sega.

Like its official successor Sega Jack, the magazine was distributed for free in Sega's Amusement Theme Park venues, and also later received a digital version on their official website. It is suspected that only nine issues were produced, with the relaunched Sega Maga picking up from where it left off (and initially using the same name).
