Shogi is not actually a game that is available to you immediately, you actually have to fund for it in the Quickstarter. It is the Artisinal Shogi Set, once you have funded it enough you will then find it in the Mailbox back at the Yagami Office.
From there you will then need to head to Children’s Park and talk to the Homeless people in order to play the game.
The Shogi Puzzles are actually quite easy and dead straight forward, it does not actually require you to play a full length match.
You simply need to move 1 or 2 different pieces in order to pull off Checkmate and win the match. There are 10 in total to get through.
Also, a quick note Take Back and Time Limit does not matter, just leave those as it is.
Note, if the game asks you to Promote, do so at all times.
