Talk:Yakuman DS

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

"Mahjong"[edit]

According to Wikipedia, mahjong can be written as mahjong, mahjongg, mah-jong, mah-jongg, mah jong, mah jongg or even majiang. We should decide which spelling to use and apply it to the wiki overall. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 06:44, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

Mahjong. It's the most used name. papertoycf7.gif Paper Jorge! I give paper cuts so stand back! papertoycf7.gif I think.

Super Smash Bros. Benfactor?[edit]

The characters only seem to be from Mario and its spin-offs (Donkey Kong and Wario), so I don't see how this game relates to Super Smash Bros., is there some in-game references other than characters, or is the information on the page incorrect? - Walkazo

Yakuman DS is one of many titles in the Yakuman series. Yakuman DS is the first to include Mario characters. I would speculate that Yakuman player was a generic guy replaced by the Mario characters in this version. Therefore, he is, as far as I know, not having seen Yakuman player in screens and videos for YDS, that he falls out of our range of coverage, and therefore he is not mentioned on the Wiki.

The Yakuman Player is from the Game Boy game Yakuman released in 1989 in Japan [1]. This game isn't Mario-themed, so the player isn't relevant for the article, but it might be worth mentioning that Yakuman DS isn't the first mahjong game by Nintendo, there are quite a few. By the way, I noticed that a Wikipedia author had stolen the article in February this year (no mentioning of Super Mario Wiki). The Wikipedia article is pretty much identical. --Grandy02 07:59, 5 March 2009 (EST)
Ha - our sourcing policy is different from theirs, so anything they steal share from us is going to be considered bad writing for them. Stumpers! 15:10, 5 March 2009 (EST)

Additional unlockable playable characters?[edit]

Are all of those characters really unlockable for play? How? As far as I've figured out I can't, and the Japanese Wikipedia article places all of the "unlockable" characters firmly in the "non-playable" category and lists Toad as an additional playable character instead.

Crossover?[edit]

On the Mario (franchise) article, it lists this game as a crossover game. But if it was a crossover, there would need to be another franchise, no? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

As stated above on this very talk page, there are other Yakuman games without Mario characters, so I suppose the other franchise would be Yakuman.--vellidragon 09:54, 3 June 2010 (EDT)
Yakuman is a common term in Japanese mahjong rules as far as I know, though, and there are several games bearing the Yakuman name that were not made by Nintendo. I'm not sure, but wouldn't it almost be like saying that Mario Tennis is a crossover between the Mario and Tennis series because it is a tennis game? --Grandy02 19:51, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
