Madou Monogatari (魔導物語) is a role-playing game for the Sega Saturn released as part of Compile's Madou Monogatari series.

At the time of release, Sega owned the Puyo Puyo license (including characters) and are credited in game, however development and publishing was still largely handled by Compile.


Despite its name, Madou Monogatari on the Saturn is an entirely different and unique game in Compile's Madou Monogatari series, being a third-person RPG (that is to say, it is not the same game as Madou Monogatari I or Madou Monogatari I: 3tsu no Madoukyuu, which are first-person dungeon-crawlers). The overworld is rendered in an isometric perspective, while battle scenes are played side-on.
