Arc System Works has announced Two Jong Cell!!, an “evocative school mahjong drama / beautiful girls mahjong simulation” game for PlayStation 4. It will launch digitally on November 24 in Japan for 2,490 yen. Its only supported language is Japanese.
Get the first details below.
Two Jong Cell!! is a mahjong game in which players can impose their own rules during a match, allowing you to use supernatural powers that will take even mahjong enthusiasts by surprise, and offering an experience that not only seasoned players can enjoy, but also casual players who are attracted by flashier, more anime-esque matches.
The setting of the story is Minegami Academy, a school where mahjong is popular among students. The player takes on the role of a transfer student who will interact with the six heroines they meet there. From there, form a tag team with your favorite heroine and aim to become the top mahjong player at the academy.
In addition to its offline mode, there is also an online battle mode featuring two-versus-two matches in which you team up with a heroine, as well as four-player matches in which each player has a special skill, allowing you to enjoy flashy mahjong matches like never before.
Use Tricks and Skills to Win
Two new elements have been added to the rules to enable even deeper mahjong matches.
The first new item is “Kizuna Tricks.” This is a cooperative technique with your partner that can be used by spending dedicated points. For example, you can exchange one of your own tiles for a partner’s tile.
The second new item is “Extreme Skills.” Each partner’s skills are gradually unlocked during a match. These skills affect the rules of mahjong itself, allowing you to achieve agari (a winning hand) in ways normally impossible. For example, it is possible for a “naki suuankou” to be treated as a “menzen,” even if called.
Even Hotter Online Battles
The real thrill of Two Jong Cell!! is its online battles. Team up with your favorite heroine for two-versus-two matches, or participate in four-player matches to enjoy mahjong to its fullest.
In four-player matches, each player has a special skill, allowing you to enjoy exciting matches with flashy scenes like a mahjong anime in which tenbou (point sticks) fly about every which way.
Launch Live Stream Planned
A special broadcast by a mahjong Virtual YouTube is planned to celebrate the game’s launch. Details will be announced via the official website and Arc System Works official Twitter account at a later date.
