Tilin' and profilin'
It’s currently the peak of the summer (or of the winter, depending on where you are in the world!), and we figure that a lot of people are spending quite a bit of time indoors. Some of us may have broken out the board games to enjoy a few rounds with our friends. Now, speaking of board games – how many of you are familiar with mahjong?
Mahjong is a 4-player game featuring 34 types of tiles that was developed in China in the 19th century and later on spread around the world. In it, players take turns picking and discarding tiles in order to complete specific combinations. For this event, Decor Pikmin will be donning “honor” tiles representing dragons and winds, as well as numbered tiles from the game’s three suits: bamboo, marbles, and characters. When combined, these can form high-scoring hands such as “Thirteen Orphans” or “Mixed Terminals” among many others.
Whether it’s your first time hearing about it, or you’re an avid player, you’re sure to love the new Mahjong Tile Decor Pikmin that will be joining us for our next event, starting on August 14th, 2023!
For full details on the Mahjong Tile Decor Pikmin event, read on below.
Mahjong Decor Pikmin come in a total of 14 different types. The first 7 will appear starting on August 14th, during the first part of the event, and the remaining 7 will join during the second part of the event, starting on August 26th. Get on the challenge to meet them all!
Event First Part: starts on August 14th at 0:00 local time
◆Complete Event Challenge missions to obtain gold seedlings for Mahjong Tile Decor Pikmin
For every Event Challenge mission that you clear, you’ll be able to obtain rewards at random. These can be nectar, gold seedlings, or other items. Additionally, when the Big Flower at the center of the stage blooms, you’re guaranteed to receive an extra gold seedling.
Mission details will be published here on the day the event starts – don’t forget to bookmark this page!
※Please note that seasonal flowers featured in the Event Challenge missions until August 31st 23:59 will be sunflowers and hibiscus, and they will switch to spider lilies and the seasonal flower for September starting on September 1st at 0:00 local time. The switch will not affect ongoing missions and will be reflected once you move on the next mission. ※Sunflower and hibiscus petals will continue to be available in the shop until September 10th.
Gold Seedlings obtained through the Event Challenge will grow into either Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple, White, Winged or Rock Mahjong Tile Decor Pikmin. Please note you’ll meet them at random and are not guaranteed to complete the whole set.
