For the Greek magazine, see Sega Power (Greece).

Sega Power was a monthly magazine sold within the UK that focused on Sega products, namely the Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive (and its add-ons, the Sega Mega-CD and Sega 32X), Sega Game Gear and later, the Sega Saturn. It was the successor to S: The Sega Magazine, and took advantage of the boom of video game consoles during the early 1990s.

The magazine continued until 1997 when it was rebranded Saturn Power and focused solely on the Sega Saturn.
