Hayazashi Nidan Morita Shogi 2 (早指し 二段森田将棋２ Rank-2 Quick Match: Morita Shogi 2) is a cancelled 1995 Famicom board game that is a port of the released SFC game of the same name. The game was developed by Random House and published by Seta. It was meant to be last game for the system in May 1995 for 14,800 yen.
The FC version was cancelled for unknown reasons.
The computer's thinking time is further reduced, allowing the player to enjoy smoother gameplay. Also, the prepared mode, if cleared, gives the player the joy of earning a Japan Shogi Association certified dan right at home. Four difficulty settings let the player play according to their skill level. The computer's strength is approximately 2nd dan, and thinking time for one hand is about 10 seconds.
The player is able to earn a dan right from home. First move, second move, hisha ochi (without rook), and kaku ochi (without bishop) among other various configurations are possible. Through the game, the player can win a real genuine dan.
Prototype cartridge sold?
After cancellation of the version, a prototype was sold to a collector for 200,000 yen.
