Genesis emulator coming to iPhone, won't be taken down

0

Here's something you don't see every day. An emulator for the Sega Genesis is on its way to the iPhone App Store and, get this, it probably won't be taken down within 24 hours. Sega is getting set to release their own official emulator for everybody's favorite little handheld.

I wouldn't get too excited, though. It's less an emulator than a content portal. You'll be able to buy a number of classic Genesis games through the app, including Ecco the Dolphin, Shining Force, Sonic the Hedgehog and Golden Axe. And, for buying the emulator itself, you'll get to enjoy Space Harrier II, the app's pack-in title.

A couple of the games announced have already been released to the App Store as independent games, which is less exciting. But with how cluttered things have become in there, having a way to deliver games to the people who want them more efficiently sounds like a very good idea. The emulator should appear in the App Store next month.
