The Japanese Saturn was released in November 1994, just six weeks ahead of its rival, Sony's PlayStation. Approximately 170,000 machines were sold the first day the console went on sale. Many of the games that made the Saturn popular in Japan, such as the Sakura Taisen series and various role-playing video games, were never released in foreign territories as it was assumed at Sega of America and Sega of Europe that they were not appealing to a Western audience.
