Is it hard to learn Mandarin? (DETAILS INCLUDED)?

I’ve been learning Japanese for 10 years and I’m quite good at it. My question is: I also want to learn Chinese (Mandarin). Do you think that would be very hard, considering they use the same alphabet, but you just say it differently out aloud. Or do you think knowing Japanese beforehand would make it easier?
Just to clarify… I know that Japanese and Mandarin share only the alphabet. I wasn’t born yesterday. I’m asking if knowledge of Kanji (Japanese alphabet) helps when learning Chinese to make writing easier. I am aware both languages are spoken differently.
More details: I’m already starting to learn Korean. I want to be an interpreter.
