The Sega Saturn was a failure in the US market, but sold very well in Japan, perhaps because its advertising featured Judo master Segata Sanshiro beating up people who weren’t playing the Sega Saturn. Losses in the US led to the console being cancelled worldwide…and the premature introduction of Sega’s next console, Dreamcast.
