Shogi (sometimes spelled Shougi) is a board game very popular in Japan. It
plays a little like Chess with similar pieces and moves. This game does not
actually let you play the game itself, but instead allows you to either watch
games played by famous pros at tournaments, and also try and guess which moves
are most appropriate during the game. This is the second game in the short
series, with the first game aptly named Shogi Meikan '92, released a year

Watch Mode (ŠÏí) - Automatic/Manual
This is basically just watching a game at either your own speed or by using the
manual speed setting. Both timing modes allow you to fast forward or reverse
the moves.

Explanation Mode (‰ðà) - Automatic/Manual
These are the same matches than the Watch Mode but the difference is that after
the beginning moves have been done, the game will start asking you questions
about which move would be ideal at this position. It gives you several choices
along with a short explanation why. You also score points for getting the
correct answers but they do not seem to be kept on record anywhere. Note that
if you skip through the game it will not ask you questions, you have to let it
move at a slow pace.

Automatic will ask for your speed setting (1-5). The difference between these
two that in manual you always have to press a button to get the next move
whereas the automatic does not stop unless you press pause. If you want to
review the match on your own pace you should choose manual timing.

A starts the match. START to pause the game. Press UP for the next move, DOWN
to revert the last one and hold down LEFT and RIGHT to fast forward/reverse.

Press SELECT during the game to get the option to return to the menus with the
START button. If you do not want to do this press A.

The board takes up most of the screen. On the right and left are two white
boxes with a blue border are the players' names. The orange boxes nearby will
hold the pieces that have been lost during the match.

The bottom of the screen has a tiny box for the number of moves made so far.
The larger box is for the move description, other details as well as the move
selections during explanation mode.
