Atlus And Sunsoft Match Up To Make Mahjong



Puzzle games are something that haven’t quite started to take off on the Nintendo 3DS just yet. The closest thing available at the moment is Puzzle Bobble Universe, but if you want a more strictly puzzle-oriented game, Atlus have got you covered.


This summer, Atlus will be publishing a Sunsoft-developed Mahjong game on the 3DS, titled Mahjong Cub3D. The game consists of 200 such matching puzzles, where you have a map made of Mahjong tiles and have to match identical tiles to clear them away. That’s the “Cube mode”.


There are two other modes included here as well: Classic mode, where you play classic Mahjong Solitaire, and a 2-player Versus mode.
