Pseudo Saturn Kai v6.541

Posted by

The Pseudo Saturn Kai software has seen plenty of active development since its last major release a year or two ago. The Pseudo Saturn Kai software allows you to run Saturn game backups (burned on CD-R) with only the need of a Saturn Cartridge such as the Action Replay (and their clones), USB dev cart, Gamer’s Cartridge and can be used with Optical Drive Emulators including the Rhea/Phoebe, Fenrir and Satiator.
