Ultima I was second in a series of Ultima games converted by Origin and distributed by Ponycanyon for various japanese platforms. It is based on the 1986 remake and comes in the usual videotape like box featuring the original cover art work. Instead of the separate cardboard maps it has all four images printed side by side on a single cloth map. Gameplay wise the MSX version is as usual not on par with other japanese releases, due to its graphical limitations (only 256x256 display). Unlike the original Origin titles the Ponycanyon conversions of Ultima I have a multi-piece soundtrack.
