The decades-old Sega Saturn may be a beloved retro console for those who have experienced the company’s penultimate console. With the console being infamously difficult to emulate and real hardware becoming faulty, preservation of the device and its exclusive games is becoming increasingly important.

That’s where the Polymega comes in: designed as an all-in-one emulation device, this modular console will allow players to play legal backups of retro games. With Playstation, Sega Saturn, Sega CD, TurboGrafx CD, Neo Geo CD, Genesis, TurboGrafx 16, SNES and NES support, the system appears to be the greatest emulator box yet.

However, with the Sega Saturn being notoriously difficult to get working properly through emulator, this system’s recently revealed Saturn playback is incredibly impressive.

Through a series of newly released videos, the new console has seemingly done the impossible. To my eye, the system’s emulation is near perfect. Through a series of videos, the developers have shown five incredibly difficult Saturn titles running flawlessly on the Polymega. It’s incredibly impressive!

Developed by Playmaji, the Polymega is hands-down the most impressive looking emulation system we’ve ever seen. Running on an eighth-generation Intel Coffee Lake S CPU clocked at 3.1GHz, it’s not an incredibly powerful machine but it’s been polished to perfection. With a slick UI and support for dumping your original games, Playmaji is certainly creating magic.
