The Sega Saturn has a cult following for the RPG's released on the console With the likes of the Panzer dragoon series + Dragon force. Across the Pal region we only got one of the Shining force iii chapters, But we did get Shining the holy ark and Shining wisdom. Even though only released in Japan if you love Shining force iii then you must look at chapter 1 + 2.
Pal conversions of Japanese games can be found online with translations. Nights into dreams brought the arrival of the Sega Saturn 3d controller which is a great experience to play, the follow up Christmas nights was issued with a magazine.
Beat em ups like guardian heroes, allowed lots of friends to play with the use of the Saturn's Multiplayer adapter.
Personally Three dirty dwarves is my favourite beam em up on the console, I have special memories playing Guardian heroes with my friends spending many late nights gaming.
The Saturn's controller was really good for fighters with its 6 buttons and larger size than the mega drive 6 button controller.
