Child prodigy and USA Grandmaster Samuel Reshevsky(1911-1992) endorsed commercial Zonal Chess. Right away with formal GM endorsement, we know the game has orthodox pieces. Well, not without exception, since Omega Chess broke ground with approval of the Wizard/Champion pair by more than one titled orthoChess type. The pieces' change of direction by zone is reminiscent of great historical German 'Gala' 600 years old.
