I just bought an NTSC Saturn. I am really confused about how saving works. I replaced the 2032 so it seems like the date and time retains now but how exactly do I save my progress in these games? Is it saving to a hard drive inside the console itself? SRAM supported by the 2032? Really confused by that.

My system came with the smallest of the 3 black controllers. Not the analog one or the bulkier one sans the analog. Is that controller standard with the May 1995 console? My console was made in June 1996.

Can I play Japanese games on this? Or PAL?
