The Battlestation II is a third-party two-player arcade stick released by Multicoin Australia in 1993. It is compatible with a multitude of consoles and computers of the early 1990s - any computer which adopts the DE-9 port "standard" (the Commodore Amiga being highlighted, though many other systems are compatible), the Sega Mega Drive (and by extension, Sega Master System), the Super NES and NES. Consoles such as the Atari 2600 and Atari 7800 are also compatible.

The Battlestation II is made out of components similar to those found in real arcades, making it an expensive but durable controller. It shipped with a number of leads to connect the unit to various systems, and is compatible with the Mega Drive six button standard. Missing, however, is a Mode button, although there are turbo switches. The unit also shipped with a bag for carrying.

Despite its name, no "Battlestation I" was released - it is assumed the "II" represents its two-player nature.
