A semi-reflection of the wonderful Mahjong Soul Wiki
Hime Mahjong (雀姬/姫麻雀) is a mobile game where you can play Japanese style Mahjong with other online players. The game often gets compared to Mahjong Soul - if you're played one, the other will feel very familiar. Mahjong Soul has a reputation for being a bit more generous in the gifting of "gatcha" items. Summon scrolls are given by the developers for any downtime and there is a reasonable number to be had by completing the seasonal quests. Small details on the UI are really well done including painted nails, clicking of times both on draw and discard, and beautiful sheen on tiles that are "lucky" (dora or akadora).
The game is available for Android, Steam PC and iOS (Japanese iTunes store only... if you are in another region, you can make an iTunes account for the Japanese store using a different email - the web has a number of simple tutorials to do this). There is a Web Browser version coming soon. The Steam version on the PC is rumored to be releasing an English client in the coming months... fingers crossed.
The game comes in two flavors - unfortunately neither one is English: one is Chinese and the other is Japanese. And there is a web-based version coming soon for the Japanese client (the Chinese client already has a web browser mode).
