    Possible? Sure!

    But you would need to maintain a server to host the game.. and that costs money, so I doubt anyone would be interested in doing a homebrew MMORPG

    I shudder when I think of the amount of time and energy it would take for a single homebrew programmer to create an MMORPG for the DS. Making one on the PC would be difficult enough. Making one on the DS would be exceedingly difficult given the hardware limitations and the quirks of the DS wifi system.

    Possible? Sure. Probable? Not really. Even in 2D it would take way too much effort.

    about the game lets just hack dragon quest joker and put some sprites on it.also start changing the environment lol it should rock!!!

    WRONG. This would be impossible.

    Why?
    Because you asked for an MMORPG, not an ORPG.

    I doubt that a homebrew on the DS would attract enough attention to become an MMORPG

    WRONG. You're wrong.

    Why?
    Because MMORPG is a RPG capable of carrying a massive amount of players in a single area. Even if no one plays it, the capacity is still there.
    If you called it a 'Dead MMORPG' that may be correct but not an ORPG.

    Yep. It would be hard, because there would be updates. And with updates, and on the DS, that means a lot of angry stupid people that can't figure out how to install a new version.

    If the servers were home-hosted, it would go down a lot, and have poor compatibility.

    Not to mention, the best homebrew out there right now isn't as far fetched as what you're suggesting.

    Even private servers in the WoW is pretty choppy, so my advice is not to try.
