The XE-1 ST2 is a joystick manufactured by Dempa. It is an upgraded version of the XE-1 ST, designed for use with multiple platforms, namely all Sega home consoles from the SG-1000 II to the Mega Drive (the XE-1 ST only supported up to the Master System), as well as any PC that uses DE-9 ports for game controllers (such as the MSX family, FM-TOWNS, X68000 and certain PC-88 models). The Mode switch selects between Personal Computer and Sega Series. There are also Select and Start/Run buttons. The Start/Run button functions as Start and Pause for the Mega Drive. The Select button is nonfunctional with Sega consoles, and the Start/Run button is nonfunctional with the Mark III/Master System.
Unlike the XE-1 Pro, it does not have turbo fire options. It has three buttons labeled , and /. These correspond to the Mega Drive's , and buttons. When used with the Mark III/Master System, the third button does not function as and combined. Instead, button is nonfunctional, while and / function as buttons and .
The joystick can be set to either 4-way or 8-way movement. The buttons can be rotated 90 degrees depending on the user's preference.
