Mythology Waifus Mahjong from Gamuzumi and Sweet Banana Games gives us a mahjong experience with a small dash of fan service on PS5. Instead of the usual gameplay loop of having to match pairs of tiles with the same design, Mythology Waifus Mahjong turns to the tried and proven match-three puzzle formula. As you remove trios of tiles from the playing field for each of the 60 levels to play, the ladies in the game will change their clothing little by little. Nothing major like in other games on the console with fan service, so if you’re looking for a larger helping of that, this is not the game for you.
When outside of the puzzles, you’ll control your character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad. He can jump with the Square button and interact with the X button. Interacting will be for opening up the settings on the upper left corner of the screen, accessing the gallery on the upper right corner of the screen with bonus images, or starting to play the levels. Once inside a puzzle, you’ll use the left analog stick or the D-Pad to highlight each of the available pieces. Pressing the X button will move pieces one by one to the bottom of the screen, where they will be added to your set.
If you add three pieces with the same image, then they will be removed. Doing this at a steady pace is crucial because your enemy will constantly attack you, draining your HP. If you run out of HP, it’s game over. If you fill up your set at the bottom of the screen with pieces that don’t form groups of three and you run out of space, it’s game over. You can press the Triangle button to rearrange all pieces or press the Circle button to have the game instantly select a group of three identical pieces to make them disappear. These skills have limited uses, and you’ll have to refill them by completing puzzles.
Mythology Waifus Mahjong has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy. And since it’s a Cross-Buy title, if you have a PlayStation 5 console, you can work on two separate trophy lists for the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game. The list is a short one with 11 Gold trophies that you will unlock as you complete the first 11 levels in the game. If you need some extra pointers, you can check out this Mythology Waifus Mahjong Trophy Guide.
Mythology Waifus Mahjong gives us a puzzle game that mixes mahjong with a match-tree system. The game has been toned down for its PlayStation debut, getting a T for Teen rating. Images have been edited as needed to get that rating, which is tamer than the content originally available on the Steam version. Mythology Waifus Mahjong is available as a budget Cross-Buy release at only $3.99, and your purchase will give you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game, with each one having its own trophy list.
