The Mega Commander (メガコマンダー) by Hori is a simple third-party six-button controller for the Sega Mega Drive.


The Mega Commander comes complete with added turbo features, with three speed settings for each button (normal, turbo and hold) and two slow-motion modes. It has the same design and layout as Hori's previously released Fighting Commander controller for the Super Famicom, which in turn was based on the standard Super Famicom controller, but with the L and R button on the front side. The  MODE  button is placed next to the  START  button, similar to the  SELECT  and  START  buttons on the Super Famicom's controller. The Fighting Commander PC released for the PC Engine also has the same design.
