New Character: Lily Kitahara
Lily Kitahara, the new animated character, is a nun from Northland who found residence in a convent in One Han City after taking part in a Mahjong tournament at the Mahjong Soul Shrine. She can read her opponents’ minds, giving them no place to hide, forcing them to play right into her hands. This is what makes Lily so formidable on the Mahjong table, making her a truly challenging foe. Players can unlock her bond decorations by increasing the bond value. The decorations include Riichi, Winning, and Portrait Frame.
New and Rerun Outfits, Decorations, and more
During this Summer Festival, Mahjong Soul introduces a new series of outfits: Heartfelt Summer, including 2 animated outfits for Yui Yagi and Natsuki Shinomiya.
