I am a big fan of the Ultima series and I think that the Ultima games fit perfectly for the DS. I spent days searching the internet hoping that there was a project or anything like this, but I found nothing

So that is my question: can the Ultima series games be ported to the Nintendo DS?

You could try playing the DOS versions of the game with DSx86. The rest.... porting would take WAAY too long without source code.

ACEDIT: For the record, there's also a NES versions of Ultima 3 thru 5 that you can emulate on the NDS flawlessly.

Ultima 1 works fine except for the space portion and Ultima 3 has a bug with character creation, specifically assigning stats. The Ultima 3 bug might have been fixed by now, though.

It's also possible that someone might try converting Exult although it may have already been attempted in the past it is feasable that it could at least be done on the SCDS2.

EDIT: I've just tested Ultima VII part 1 and 2 on DSx86 and they require 386 emulation to run. I've also tested them on DS2x86 and they require the EMS to be turned off (I'll have to get in touch with pate to see if this is possible).

I know there was an Ultima for the NES. And I think there was one for the SNES too.

From here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultima_(series)#Console_games)

Ultima: Exodus (NES)
Ultima: Quest of the Avatar (NES)
Ultima IV : Quest of the Avatar (Sega Master System) — A faithful port of the original. Only released in English.
Ultima: Warriors of Destiny (NES)
Ultima: Runes of Virtue (Game Boy) — Non-canonical, action based gameplay and puzzle solving. The game's antagonist is called the "Black Knight." This is Garriott's favorite console-based Ultima.[1]
Ultima: Runes of Virtue 2 (Game Boy, Super NES)
Ultima VI: The False Prophet (SNES) — Gameplay adapted for the game pad. Includes plot changes and reduction in violence.
Ultima VII: The Black Gate (SNES) — Gameplay adapted for the game pad. Includes plot changes and reduction in violence.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.
