Game Studio announced a new shogi learning game for Nintendo Switch. Titled Kishi Fujii Souta no Shogi Training, the game teaches players the basics of shogi and gradually introduces more advanced problems for players to solve. The game was created with the help of shogi professional Souta Fujii. It’ll be released on March 5, 2020 in Japan for 4,500 Yen. A Western release seems fairly unlikely for this type of game.
