January 14, 2017 OSSM 13 - november 1996 (UK) (REMASTERED)

We start of the new year with the remastered edition of the Official Sega Saturn Magazine 2.
As always, this new edition has been cleaned up considerably and has quite a few improvements over the old version which was released in 2011. The colour correction makes it look much closer to the original magazine for instance. And everything from the text to possible spots and speck of dust that might have been visible in the old release are cleaned up in this latest version.
As a preview of this issue we have a couple of articles picked out as usual. These include showcases for Vitua Cop, Virtua Fighter 2, X-Men Children of the Atom, and Firestorm Thunderhawk 2.
