    The Sega Saturn is a home video game console developed by Sega and released on November 22, 1994 in Japan; in May 11, 1995 in North America; and July 8, 1995 in Europe. Part of the fifth generation of video game consoles, it was the successor to the successful Sega Genesis. The Saturn has a dual-CPU architecture and eight processors. Its games are in CD-ROM format, and its game library contains several ports of arcade games as well as original games.

    These magazine print ads were part of the advertising campaign for the North American launch of the game console.

    The first image uses FF Confidential for the headline, as well as the “It’s Out There” tagline at the bottom right.

    The second image again uses FF Confidential for the headline. Here, body text is set in a mixture of FF Confidential and FF Meta.
