First, this game is almost similar to Crazyhouse! Second, if game have drops, it don't mean that it's Shogi variant: there is only 2 or 3 classic Shogi vaariants, wich uses drops (of course, Shogi is first game with drops, but it's very likely that inventor of Bughouse did not know about Shogi (we don't know anything about this inventos) and invented drops indepndetly). Main details of Shogi is promotion and unusual moves. I think, it will be good game, where knight, bishop and rook gets king's moves (according to promotion rules of modern Shogi or like in large Shogi variants - by capturing).
