This is the story of some Magical Girls, whom have been hunting witches throughout the ages.

How many times has this been repeating over and over again, Homura Akemi has stopped counting a long time ago. After challenging several times the most powerful of witches, "Walpurgis Night", without any success, thinking again it was the end, she entrusted everything to Madoka Kaname.

"If we all five Magical Girls get together, wouldn't we be capable of defeating Walpurgis Night?"

With that in mind, Homura goes back in time once again. The five girls must forge a bond between them to cooperate and defeat Walpurgis Night.

Now, the girls are left behind, and one of them will be their guide...



The adventure/3D action game from Dragon Ball: Battle of Z developer Artdink and Namco Bandai is divided into daytime adventure gaming, in which the magic girls socialize and bond, and nighttime witch battling, in which the player teams up with an AI partner to battle through various witch's labyrinths in the 30 days leading up to the big showdown with Walpurgis Night.


Beyond a health meter, the battle mechanics include a mana meter, drained by using the characters' special skills (Madoka's light arrows and assists Kyubey, Homura's time powers, Mami's gun blasts' and ribbons, etc.). Either meter can be refilled by using a Soul Gem charge and three charges can be used to revive a fallen partner.


The game's "what if" story is supervised by the Magica Quartet.
