Popful Mail (ぽっぷるメイル) is a 1991 game by Falcom for the PC-88. Sega Falcom ported it to the Sega Mega-CD in 1994, with Working Designs localizing it for an overseas market (which was not the original plan).

A demo disc, called Popful Mail Taikenban, was also released.


The story begins with main character, Popful Mail, chasing the criminal Nuts Cracker through a forest. When defeated, Nuts Cracker's body escapes and Mail cannot claim the bounty on him. Mad that she couldn't collect, she takes Nuts Cracker's head that was left behind and wanders around until she finds a town.

Once in the town, she tries to trade the head for some money, but fails. She learns of a new bounty and becomes excited when she spots a 2,000,000 gold reward poster for the wizard criminal, Muttonhead, near the store. With this, she embarks on her adventure.
