Ninkancho for the Display, the game will have a more linear Adventure Mode as well as a two-to-five-player Vs. Mode.
GameplayPlayers control three of sixteen chessmen at a time, using a lives system similar to that of Yoshi's Story—if a piece is captured, another must be selected to take its place. After the player takes their three turns, nearby enemies will attempt to move into a position. Most levels use the familiar checkerboard pattern as terrain. The player's pieces are gradually moved across the level, capturing men of the opposite kingdom, in an attempt to eventually dethrone the opposing king.
