Otoko Cross: Pretty Boys Mahjong Solitaire from eastasiasoft is a new Rated M for Mature tile-matching on PlayStation. We’ve previously reviewed Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire, and it’s now the time for the boys to hit the spotlight! For this tile-matching experience, you’ll be meeting a group of male characters that will challenge you to beat a series of puzzles as they change into more revealing outfits. Someone dressed as a butler might end up dressed as a maid, or someone might go from being a doctor to dressing up like a nurse.
The gameplay is easy to understand. You must select pairs of tiles to delete them from the playing area. Your objective is to remove all tiles before running out of time or ending up in a scenario in which you can remove another pair of tiles. Each stage will have three rounds, and you’ll need to win all three runs to clear the stage. To be able to remove a tile, there must be an open slot on either its left or right side, there can’t be another tile on top of it, and the two tiles you’re trying to remove must have the same design. As you play through each round and complete new stages, you’ll unlock extra costumes for each of the characters. You can then go into the Dressing Room area to change their outfits and have them try out a new look.
You’ll move a cursor around the screen with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, pressing the X button to select a tile and then pressing the X button to select a matching tile. Depending on the difficulty in which you play the game, you can press the Triangle button to activate a hint that will let you know which tiles can be matched right away. If you’re having trouble finding pairs or realize that you’re one pair away from losing the match, you can press the Square button to shuffle the tiles so that you can find more pairs.
The game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, and since it’s a Cross-Buy title, you’ll get both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game at no extra cost, so if you have a PlayStation 5 console, you can work on adding two Platinum trophies to your collection. The list includes 11 Gold trophies and a single Silver trophy, and you’ll have to three stages for Jules, Qunicy, Haru, and Morgan to get that Platinum trophy.

If you’ve enjoyed previous tile-matching games from eastasiasoft and are looking for a game with male characters in the spotlight, then this one will certainly tick those boxes. There are 60 unique tile layouts and randomized patterns, so there’s certainly some replay value in this budget release. Otoko Cross: Pretty Boys Mahjong Solitaire is out with a $6.99 asking price, giving you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
