An unnamed VHS, released alongside the first issue of the UK's Sega Saturn Magazine, is a promotional video advertising the Sega Saturn and various games set to be launched in 1995.

The VHS is headlined by footage of various Sega-published Sega Saturn games in development, including Sega Rally Championship (70% complete), animation demos and footage from a "40% complete" build of Virtua Fighter 2, a "1995 Summer Toy Show" version of Virtua Cop (30% complete), an Wing Arms (85% complete), World Series Baseball, Clockwork Knight 2, NHL All-Star Hockey and Cyber Speedway (each 95% complete) and "60% complete" versions of Hang-On GP and F1 Challenge (still known as Formula 1 or F-1 Live Information at this stage).

Later on a 75% complete version of X-Men: Children of the Atom is shown, a 90% complete version of NBA Jam Tournament Edition, a 60% complete version of WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game, a 90% complete version of Time Warner Interactive's VR Virtua Racing and Victory Boxing, a 70% complete version of Mortal Kombat II, a "demo version" of Alien Trilogy and 80% complete versions of Shellshock and Tilt!. The rest of the video is devoted to games that had already been released at this point, including Bug!, Virtua Fighter Remix, Panzer Dragoon, Daytona USA, Shinobi X, International Victory Goal, Pebble Beach Golf Links, Digital Pinball and Myst.

Throughout the video there is no commentary and the sound originates from the game being shown. As such the incomplete nature of Virtua Fighter 2 and Virtua Cop is immediately apparent.
