The EGM & Hero Illustrated Super Tour '93 was a promotional tour organised by Sendai Publishing, publishers of magazines Electronic Gaming Monthly and Hero Illustrated. It took place across a number of US shopping malls in the summer and autumn of 1993.

Sega was one of several sponsors, bringing playable versions of Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, Eternal Champions and Jurassic Park[1]. Accolade, Electronic Arts, Gametek, Hudson Soft, Interplay, The Software Toolworks (and Mindscape), Tengen, Tradewest, T.T.I., Virgin Games and retailers Babbage's and Electronics Boutique were also involved.

Super Tours would also occur across 1994 and 1995 without Sega's involvement.
