You know what’s missing from your iPhone? According to the team at Sega, that would be a hedgehog, dolphin, and dragon-riding dwarf. And their remedy happens to be a new iPhone application (aptly titled the “Ultimate Genesis Collection”) that turns your iPhone/iPod touch into a virtual Sega console. Fans of old Sega titles such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Ecco the Dolphin, and Golden Axe will soon be able to relive these classic games on the go. The application provides users with virtual buttons on the side of the screen that mimic the controllers from the original Sega Genesis system. In addition to playing the games, users will also have the ability to save mid-game — a perk that didn’t exist on the original console. The emulator app will be available sometime this month, free of charge. Games, however, will range from 2.99 to 5.99.
