Piece movement reminds Wellisch hex chess: knight also moves 1 diagonally, king moves orthogonally only. There is no bishop in Wellisch chess, but this piece is actually not bishop, rather another kind of rook.

Shenshuai: sorry that i answered this comment only after a few years :). What is this 'ninja-pirate war'? Maybe, ninjas are shogi-like pieces? Or, even more interesting variant: board have many non-game spaces (sea). Most of pirate pieces cannot cross 'water', but they can control 'ships', and most of ninja pieces are leapers and they can jump over sea.
