Disc Station (ディスクステーション Disuku Sutēshon) is a series of disk magazines that were published by Compile. The first set of issues were released for the MSX from July 1988 to January 1992, while the second set of issues was released for other PCs from October 6, 1993 to June 6, 2000.
Each volume of Disc Station contained a variety of software, including demos and even full games. The magazine was originally published entirely on floppy disks for the MSX2, before changing to a print format focused on PC98 and later Windows '95. Several Madou Monogatari- and Puyo Puyo-related games and animated shorts were released in Disc Station.
Note: This article currently limits itself to games that prominently feature Madou Monogatari and/or Puyo Puyo characters. Broadway Legend Ellena is not included for this reason, despite being the base for the future release Puyo Puyo DA!.
