The Mega Game II is a Sega Mega Drive console sold in Portugal.

Despite its looks, the Mega Game II is thought to be a licensed Mega Drive console, as it was sold by Sega's Portuguese distributor Ecofilmes. It is not known why the Mega Game II exists - the box suggests Ecofilmes sold these units from 1997-onwards, possibly due to Sega officially discontinuing the Mega Drive 2 prior to this date. Judging from the Japanese-style power switch and claims to have been made in Japan, it may be consist of re-purposed Japanese stock, however its decision to avoid using using Sega branding or the "Mega Drive" trademark may indicate more shady practices.

There are two models of the Mega Game II, both visually identical and both acting as clones of the Mega Drive 2. Both are region free, however the second, rarer model also has a 50Hz/60Hz switch on the underside of the unit to force games to run at different speeds. Both also came bundled with "unofficial" SCART cables and AC adaptors.
