The game is set in the same background as that of the TV anime and some of the character relationships are connected. The player adopts the perspective of a magical girl who is found unconscious in Mitakihara Town by the five main anime characters.
It features the magical girl cast from the anime and four new magical girls to defeat witches and Walpurgisnacht. The game uses character designs, animation, and music from the anime as well as incorporating new designs and songs for the dialogue scenes. Characters are superdeformed or "chibi" in the fight scenes.
- The game appears to use purchasable cards to unlock new attacks and items in the game. Players can also team up as 'Soul Mates' to defeat powerful enemies (which becomes more and more necessary later in the game).
- The game features at least four new witches, including the witch of giraffes, the witch of sewing, and the witch of springtime.
For character cards, visit here and click the links on the side for each of the characters, Madoka (鹿目 まどか), Homura (暁美 ほむら), Sayaka (美樹 さやか), Mami (巴 マミ), Kyoko (佐倉 杏子), all other characters and witches (その他).
The Hollow Little Mermaid
There is a special Sayaka-centric scenario called "The Hollow Little Mermaid", available as part of a limited-time special event. Four new magical girls appear in the scenario, named Elise, Claire, Hiyori and Komachi.
- Elise fights with summoning magic. Her personality makes her very well-liked. She became a magical girl to help her parents deal with the grief they had over the death of her sister.
- Claire fights with lightning. She has a quiet and gentle personality. She became a magical girl because she was lonely from being ignored by her parents.
- Hiyori fights with music. She has a calm and gentle demeanor. Her wish was to improve musical ability with her harp.
- Komachi fights with naginata swords. She's a cheerful girl. Her wish was to fix a limited life expectancy from an unknown and incurable disease.
After defeating them in the scenario, their respective cards can be used in battle.
The Magical Girl Who Leapt Through Time
There is a special Homura-centric scenario called "The Magical Girl Who Leapt Through Time", available as a limited-time special event. The scenario covers the events of Homura's time loops as seen in Episode 10.
Story and Gameplay Videos
- There are several videos of the main story cutscenes, currently up to 'episode' 37.
- Additionally, there are two videos that cover Sayaka's "Hollow Little Mermaid" scenario, and one that covers Homura's "The Magical Girl Who Leapt Through Time" scenario (downloadable here).

Some examples screenshots of character dialogues.
Do you now understand the difference in our strength? You guys can't protect the city. Retreat.
Why... I cannot understand the reason I lost.
Huh... No way, to think I lost against them.
Note: This dialogue is an example of how events can differ from the anime. In the anime, Madoka threw Sayaka's soulgem away.

Translation: Sayaka's Bad Fortune
For context, this takes place after arriving at a shrine for New Year's. Everyone, including you as the player character, got various degrees of good fortune from their omikuji. This scene takes place with Sayaka receiving her fortune.
Kyoko: Oh, good for you. Now let me guess, Sayaka's going to top us all off with a bad luck fortune, right? Ahahaha-...
Sayaka: "Horrible luck"... [Editor's note: dai-kyō, (大凶) is the worst fortune you can get with an omikuji]
Kyoko: ! !
Player: Wow...so a horrible luck fortune really does exist...
Sayaka: "The person you are waiting for....won't come."
Player: Uwaa... Sayaka's seriously getting depressed...
Kyoko: I..it's just a piece of paper, it's no big deal! Give it to me. I'll go tie it on a tree for ya!
Sayaka: ...Will I end up alone this year..?
Kyoko: D..don't worry Sayaka, that won't happen. I'll...err...I'll stay with you!
Player: Looks like Kyoko's actually trying to cheer Sayaka up for once. Kind of a weird scene.

Madoka: No, I can't accept them!
Madoka: These are important chocolates for Homura-chan's precious person, right?
Homura: ...Yes, my most important friend.
Homura: If it's alright with you, please accept them.
Madoka: ...Sorry, I was always interested in who is receiving Homura-chan's chocolate.
Homura: You are my best friend. No one is more important than you.
Madoka: I'm not that great. But thank you. I also like/love [TN: daisuki] Homura-chan a lot.
Madoka: Let's split this chocolate and eat them together!
Homura: !? Eh, Eh...
Homura: ...I should be the one to say "thank you." It's thanks to you that I'm having a wonderful valentine's.
Translation: Mami is Popular
Mami: Ara, [Player character]-chan, can I help you?
Player: Uh..Mami-san, here..a token of my gratitude for always being there everyday..
Mami: My! Thank you! I'm so happy...!
Player: Huh..? There's a whole mountain of chocolates on the table over there...
Mami: A, ahh...from friends and underclassmen...you know..
Mami: If you don't mind, could you help me eat them? I don't think I can manage on my own...
Kyouko: There's a lot of high quality chocolates here, it's awesome!
Mami: Sakura-san came to help me as well. Hold on, I'll get some drinks.
Player: Wow.. Mami-san's so popular....

Translation: Being a Bride is a Girl's Dream
Madoka: Wearing a kimono for the ceremony is nice, too. Being a bride is a girl's dream, after all!
Mami: In that case Kaname-san, after the Hinamatsuri, you should hurry up and finish your hina dolls.
Player: If you don't, you'll never be a bride.
Homura: ....Don't worry, Madoka. ....When that time comes...
