    Battle Princess Madelyn is a 2D indie medieval-fantasy side-scrolling platformer developed and digitally published by Causal Bit Games (both as Casual Bit Games and Monster Bath Studios, later as Monster Bath Games) for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on December 4, 2018. Wii U and PlayStation Vita versions were announced, but later cancelled.

    A retro-themed throwback game highly reminiscent Capcom's earlier Ghosts 'n Goblins series of platformers, Battle Princess Madelyn has players the titular young knight (along with her ghostly pet dog Fritzy) as they journey to save her kingdom from the clutches of an evil wizard. The game can be played both as a traditional Arcade Mode and as a dedicated Story Mode (with an overworld map, NPCs, and side-quests).

    The Switch version received a second revision on April 9, 2019 as Battle Princess Madelyn: Royal Edition, featuring redesigned stages and new content. This version received a retail release by Limited Run Games on October 25, 2019.

    A remake later released for arcades using exA-Arcadia hardware on November 14, 2020. Known as Super Battle Princess Madelyn in English and Makai to Touki Madelyn ("Hell and Fighting Princess Madelyn") in Japanese, this brand new installment has completely redesigned stages and accompanied by a brand new soundtrack by Gryzor87. The core gameplay now more closely resembles arcade classics such as Ghouls N Ghosts. The main illustration is drawn by famed anime character designer Koichi Kikuta.
