Fenrir Sega Saturn ODE Release Date and Pricing Announced

EDIT 04/02:  It looks like the price has gone up since it’s original announcement from $96 to $123.81.

EDIT 04/09:  There’s been some confusion on the price:  The increase was only from $96 to about $103 – The $124 amount includes VAT (20%), which only applies to the EU.  Everywhere else will pay $103.

EDIT:  New purchase link:


8BitMods will be selling a batch of 50 Fenrir Sega Saturn Optical Drive Emulators (ODE) between March 28th-April 4th, followed by a run of 500 more once things settle down. An ODE is a flash cart for disc based systems that boots games from an SD card.

They also posted a video of the installation, which took less than a minute, and simply requires removing the CD-ROM and snapping Fenrir in its place.

I recently wrote-up the latest updates to Fenrir here, and more have materialized since. The most important update adds BIN/CUE support, which brings native support to a full Redump set, which is widely considered to be the most accurate Sega Saturn image collection. That is in addition to its IMG/CCD and BIN/ISO support. These three standards represent the bulk of decent Saturn disc image dumps from the last 15 years or so.
