The manual is comprehensive, and covers issues ranging from the low-level hardware, up to system libraries and game standards. This was the primary documentation made available to Japanese developers. Separated documents with individual ID numbers, such as was used for English-speaking regions, don't appear to have been used in Japan for the Saturn, instead there were several versions of larger manuals provided. This is the first electronic version of the manual. An English translation of this documentation will be provided in the future. For now, opening the local html files in Google Chrome allows the integrated translation tools to work, allowing for fairly easy navigation of the documentation, except where text appears in images.
