You may know Chess, but do you know Shogi? This challenging and exciting strategy game is arguably the most popular board game in Japan. Now it arrives on Xbox LIVE Arcade with world-class AI, 16 challenging computer opponents, online multiplayer, gorgeous 3D boards and a beautifully rendered Japanese setting.
Shogi is a complex and rich game, offering many more possibilities than Western Chess. It has not achieved great notoriety in the west, partly due to the difficulty of using Japanese Kanji pieces. However this game dominates Japan more than Chess dominates the west, with a very high percentage of Japanese playing it. The 3D implementation adds a new richness to computer Shogi play.
