The Saturn Twin-Stick (ツインスティック) is a special peripheral designed with Cyber Troopers Virtual-On in mind. As the name suggests it features two joysticks at the expense of fewer buttons. Despite having a product code of its own (HSS-0151), it was only ever sold as part of a HSS-0154 pack containing Cyber Troopers Virtual-On.

The Saturn Twin Stick was only released in Japan (despite having detailed descriptions of the controls in the US and EU Cyber Troopers Virtual-On manual[2]), and its design would go on to inspire the Dreamcast Twin Stick.

List of supported games

While the Twin-Stick was designed for Cyber Troopers Virtual-On a small number of other games also support the perihperal. None were released outside of Japan.
