There are reports this week of major new restrictions issued by the Chinese state regarding their approval of new video-games.

Re: MFC PSP guide now up

I saw your thread about adding custom MP3s - that's a neat feature.

I think the Vita edition was probably the most recent console version - wow, six years ago now. Generally publishers seem to be favouring portable platforms ...

Mahjong Fight Club Grand Master

Here's the trailer for the latest iteration of the MFC arcade system.

Re: Nihon Pro Mahjong challenge question and translation

Hi Dude and welcome to the forum.

Ignatius is quicker at replying and definitely quicker at translations!

I still haven't got a Vita so it's interesting to see something from one of the JPML games.

:D It's nice knowing that I've helped a lot of people.

Sometimes I'll open a forum thread to post my link and see that someone else has already done it.

Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

The international title was confirmed today in the Kinda Funny Games Showcase stream as "Judgment".

It'll release next summer and include an English dub (dual audio options, I think).
