The Arcade Power Stick 6B (アーケードパワースティック6B), known as the Arcade Power Stick II in Europe and 6 Button Arcade Stick in North America, is a six-button update to the Sega Mega Drive's Arcade Power Stick.

Like its predecessor, the Japanese release has a microswitched joystick, akin to those found in the arcade. Overseas versions and buttons use less reliable rubber inputs, similar to those found in standard Control Pads.
