The Dual Action is a video game console capable of running both Sega Mega Drive Nintendo Entertainment System video game cartridges. Thought to have been developed by Hamy, it was sold under a number of guises across the world, including the Gen-X, Dual Station, Retron Combo/FC Combo (エフシーコンボ) and 2 in 1 Genesis.

All versions of the console loosely resemble a Genesis 3 and ship with two six-button controllers, though some versions have a 72-pin Nintendo Entertainment System cartridge slot, and others a 60-pin Famicom cartridge slot. Compatibility is better than the GN Twin, with support for the Master System Converter II, though not the Sega Mega-CD or Sega 32X.
