Nintendo is releasing a new Mahjong set in Japan on November 29. The set, which retails for 18,900 yen (about $190 USD), features minimal markings from the the company with subtle Nintendo logos on the chips and a special turtle mark that was used on the company's older products. Optionally, interested parties can also purchase a mat for 5,250 yen (about $53 American). 

Although Nintendo is mainly known for video game hardware and software releases around the world, the company is also still dedicated towards selling more traditional games in Japan such as Hanafuda, Shogi, standard playing cards and more. Some of the more elaborate sets can sell for as much as 99,750 yen (around $1003 UD).
