    Did a MVS mahjong controller ever came out ?

    Hi
    Have we ever heard (or seen) such a device or cabinet ? There are lots of MVS mahjong carts available, so... what were they played with ?

    Looking for info about a specific AES system? Mail id@hayde.neoteam620.com , I may have some.

    That "Neo Geo collector" guy on Twitter is obsessed with them and has recently purchased one & posted pics, yes they do exist.

    I thought the mahjong games could be played with a joystick (but the mahjong controller is better)?

    wow! I've actually never seen that before.

    I've never understood the fascination with the Neo mahjong stuff, outside of being collectible. The games are "meh" at best. Way better mahjong elsewhere.

    I also have one for my Super Neo 29. I'll share a pic when I can dig it out.

    The controller itself is interesting just because there weren't many official accessories released for Neo Geo; especially not ones with a whole different control layout.

    I saw a pic of a shop in Japan with a few of them boxed for sale, I'd say they are rare but gettable

    Thats because that one is for their Pre-Neo Geo generic Jamma Candy Cabs, such as this one...

    A lot of the mobos have controller ports on them. I'd assume you could use a home console mahjong controller that way. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    Hit detection...It's all about hit detection.

    Why does the mahjong controller have most of the keys all arranged in a single long row? Is mahjong played slower than what you would do with a typing keyboard? It looks like a controller you'd use by using just your index fingers, like old folks who never learned to keyboard type.

    Nothing excites me more than mahjong controllers, I am literally hard as a rock right now.

    Is mahjong a fun game to play? I wouldn't know, I haven't played it.
    Perhaps somebody could do a translation for the mahjong games, just like they have with Samurai Spirits RPG.

    Yeah, I agree it probably works. Maybe someone can confirm.

    Meh. Unless you grew up with it. It's just a shame there are so many releases many can't enjoy. There are some tutorials that teach you to play on Youtube.

    Any translation would really only be for the story. Mahjong itself requires very little Japanese to actually play. You just need to learn the rules.

    Never ran across one of those either.








    Not surprised....the mahjong games are shit and it's ridiculous what the AES controller versions can bring.

    Did you save this pic somewhere ? It'd be even greater to have a pic of the box.

    This is not Typing of the Dead, what the fuck dude. Searching "Mahjong" on google would have immediately answered your question.

    It’s ok. Popular in senior communities. THe fact they made a controller for it is probably the most interesting part of the Neo games that came out.
