The AI Shogi series had yearly releases from 1996 to 1998, each one being on a different platform: the 3DO, PlayStation and then N64. This one has one welcome feature that the previous N64 Shogi games didn’t, and that’s showing the moves each piece can make. It didn’t help me much for actually playing, as I still couldn’t quite tell how my opponents pieces would move.
This shogi game is very basic, though. The biggest visual thing is that you can change the background, and you can choose to play against player 2 or the CPU. The only additional feature is that you can edit the starting position of each piece, so I was able to play a match where my opponent only had pawns. I managed to get a stalemate which, unlike chess, meant that I won.
Remake or Remaster?
Clubhouse Games on Switch does the job.
