I did buy the PS4 at launch but only because I play the Battlefield series, BF4 was a PS4 launch title and it gave the full 64-player experience (compared to 24 players on the PS3) so that was the killer app for me but otherwise I would've waited a while.

I don't suppose that mahjong games specifically would benefit much from the increased power of the next generation of hardware but there is a tradition of new mahjong games being available at the launch of a new console, then again phone and other mobile platforms are so dominant now so who knows...?

The newest mahjong title on the Switch is also the oldest.

VS Mahjong is the latest in the extensive 'Arcade Archives' series, based on a Nintendo arcade-game from 1984!

It's released worldwide but seems to be two-player and Japanese in-game text only.

If you're really serious about your retro gaming, get this Switch stand designed to look like a Nintendo VS arcade cabinet.

In surprise news, Sega and Microsoft announced today that Yakuza Zero (prequel), Kiwami and Kiwami 2 (remakes of the first two games) will be coming to Xbox One in early 2020 and are among the 50+ titles confirmed for the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. Assuming no content cuts, these three games will bring Japanese mahjong with an English interface to the XB1.
Yakuza Zero is now available for the Xbone.

Clubhouse Games has been announced for the Nintendo Switch coming this June.

It's a compendium of 51 minigames (see link) including Riichi Mahjong and it should have online multiplayer.

I have the original Clubhouse Games for the Nintendo DS, known as 42 All-Time Classics here in the UK.

So I finally bought my first Android/iOS device - a 10.5" Android tablet. A new world of gaming awaits! :o

I've got six mahjong games so far - the popular Mahjong Soul and Kemono in English and four titles in Japanese.

It was very easy to get the Jp titles. I just opened this thread in my tablet browser, clicked the store links, then clicked Install. 8)
