252 Sega Saturn
Game Over, yeah!
Ages (pun intended) ago I did a Dreamcast picture and I’ve been promising myself to do a Saturn version since. Many years later, here we are! A celebration of all things Sega Saturn, my favourite games console.
I wanted to make a nice composition of purely Saturn-exclusive games, using only human-like characters. (I thought the Daytona Hornet car would look too odd with the human characters…)
Majority of these games have been re-released or remade since, but they are iconic Saturn characters to me. Except Bug. He’s just filling a void in the picture.
I’ve always loved the Japanese Saturn controllers so I’ve included that colourful bit of joy here. However the background is more inspired by the European Sega Saturn box, which has the blue planet and space motif.
Do you know every character? If not, clockwise from the top:
- Shou, from Burning Rangers
- Michael Hardy “Rage”, from Virtua Cop
- Bug, from Bug!
- NiGHTS, from NiGHTS into Dreams…
- Astal, from Astal
- Akira, from Virtua Fighter
- Sonic, from Sonic The Hedgehog
- Azel, from Panzer Dragoon Saga
- Honey / Candy, from Fighting Vipers
- Sir Tongara de Pepperouchau III, from Clockwork Knight
