Total Saturn was a monthly magazine which backed the Sega Saturn and was released in the UK. It was not a particularly successful magazine and is therefore one of the rarest, being sold only in a handful of video game stores rather than normal magazine stands.
The magazine was often accused of plagiarism, and made a habit of using Sony PlayStation screenshots to describe cross-platform titles. It came with its own brand of demo discs.
It is not currently known how many issues of Total Saturn were released and when. Some sources say ten issues were produced across 1997, though the coverage of older games and lack of information on the internet to support the 10 issue claim, suggests perhaps only six issues were printed, likely in the latter half of 1996.
