Madou Monogatari is the last Madou Monogatari title to be produced by Compile. It was released for the Sega Saturn on July 23, 1998.


The plot circles around Lagnus getting cursed and mysterious plants appearing all over the world that Arle inhabits.

Unlike the other games which tend to be dungeon crawlers, Madou sends you through isometric maze like levels with up to 3 partners where you can use minimal puzzle solving skills to clear paths and find your way to the goal.

Your main party consists of Arle and Rulue in it approximately 90% of the time. Carbuncle is also in your party, but is an NPC and will randomly attack enemies without warning.

  • The original plot, as created by Madou Monogatari: Hachamecha Kimatsu Shiken writer Kenji Oda, was meant to bridge the Madou Monogatari and Puyo Puyo series. The setting was rejected due to managerial differences. Oda would reuse concepts from the failed setting to create the Shin Madou Monogatari ("True Madou Monogatari") novels. It is thus unknown whether Compile intended the novels to be canon to Madou Monogatari and Puyo Puyo, or they simply reflect Oda's rejected plans for the franchises.
