Huh… well Atlus’ current lineup for the 3DS only consists of the re-purposed Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked so it seems that they will be adding another game to help flesh out their lineup. Of course this game may be seen by some as a bit of a questionable move as Mahjong certainly isn’t as popular in the U.S. as it is in the Eastern world.
Either way Atlus is going to be localizing Sunsoft’s Shanghai 3D Cube and naming it Mahjong Cub3D in an effort to minimize the title name. Players will be able to match mahjong tiles in Cube Mode to help solve the cube puzzle or play the average Classic Mode where the pieces are lying flat on a table. 200 puzzles will be included and multiplayer will be available through Download Play. No release date besides Summer 2011 or price has been announced yet but hey, at least it is another game coming out for the 3DS at some point this Summer.
