Magical Company (魔法株式会社 Mahou Kabushikigaisha) is the rebranding of Japanese game developer and publisher Home Data. The rebranding took place in 1993, the tenth anniversary of the company. However, because the company housed different audio staff, Magical Company has its own page.

The company started only developing games for other clients, but eventually started their own publishing division as well. It also appears they had done some work with TOSE in the past.

It's hard to track all who worked for the company, as, like most of Home Data's games, a great deal of Magical Company's games lacked credits.


Music Development

Game Boy

Toshiyuki Takine created MIDI files and gave them to the programmer(s) to implement into the games.


Magical created their own variant of Kankichi-kun by Nintendo. It may have been by Sting.

'96 Zenkoku Koukou Soccer Senshuken, Koushien 4, and Shougi Saikyou II: Jissen Taikyoku Hen use TOSE's second variant of Nintendo's Kankichi-kun sound driver, programmed by "Chatran".
