Did one spawn the other, and if so, which came first. So I looked it up, and lo and behold they're both spawned off of an even more ancient game from India called Chaturanga. Good to know.
But maybe you already knew that. Maybe you're a Shogi fanatic from way back, and you're hoping to Buddha that I don't waste your time explaining how you play Shogi and instead explain if Shotest Shogi is worth spending your hard earned points on in Live Arcade. Does Shotest Shogi add anything really significant to the experience, at least presentation-wise to justify buying it? Yes and no."
