Layer Section II (レイヤーセクションⅡ) is a shoot-'em-up game developed by Tose. It is a 1997 Sega Saturn port of a 1996 arcade game titled RayStorm, developed by Taito. Layer Section II is the sequel to Layer Section, otherwise known as RayForce. The Saturn version was exclusive to Japan, though the game's PlayStation release (under the original RayStorm name) was released worldwide; there were also Windows releases in certain countries.

Layer Section II is patterned after its predecessor, though everything is rendered as 3D models rather than 2D sprites.
