Update By: Supper

Exactly 25 years after its release, Sorcery Saga III (Madou Monogatari III) for the Sega Game Gear has been translated into English!

Following the events of Sorcery Saga II, magician-in-training Arle Nadja and her new companion Carbuncle continue their journey to the Ancient Magic School. But trouble once more finds them on the road when they are mysteriously ambushed by Rulue, who declares her undying love for Satan and traps them in a labyrinth. Aided by the citizens of the Frog Empire, can Arle escape the Minotauros's labyrinth and exact vengeance on Rulue?

Sorcery Saga III is the third in a series of dungeon crawlers developed by Compile, and probably best known as the origin of the Puyo Puyo puzzle game series. Originally released for Japanese home computers, the games were later ported to the Game Gear. These versions are generally quite different from the (as-yet-untranslated) computer versions; the third game in particular shares little with the original except a few characters, with the plot and dungeons almost entirely new for the port.

This translation patch was the work of TheMajinZenki (translation), Supper (hacking), cccmar (editing and testing), and Xanathis (testing). Thanks as well to Filler for originally dumping the game's script, and to Kingofcrusher's original work on the first Game Gear Madou Monogatari game.

The authors hope you'll enjoy the game. Look forward to more Sorcery Saga in the future!

Great! Another Game Gear RPG down! Little by little every rpg in this platform is being translated. I don't know how many are left yet untranslated currently. Only Eternal Legend, perhaps?

It's just Madou Monogatari A (the only part of PC-98 Madou Monogatari A-R-S ported to Game Gear) and Eternal Legend, yes. There are perhaps a couple borderline RPGs, like the second Magic Knight Rayearth game (though that one's more of a simulation all things considered), but when it comes to "pure" RPGs, it's just 2. Not a huge number at all, by any stretch. :)
