The unnamed MK-1470 control pad is a controller for the Sega Mega Drive which saw a very limited release in Brazil and possibly North America.
At this present time, it is unknown why this control pad exists - it was distributed with one specific model of the Super Mega Drive 3 by Tec Toy in the late 1990s, released at a similar time to another MK-1470 control pad by Majesco, primarily for their Genesis 3 console. This MK-1470 is functionally identical to that model, sporting six face buttons and primitive turbo features, but has very different aesthetics more akin to the standard 3 button control pad.
This MK-1470 is noted for having a poorer build quality than its siblings, and being slightly more awkward to hold due to its button placement.
Tec Toy would later fall back to the more familiar Six Button Control Pad (Japanese-style) for later consoles.
