The western style pieces you mention are not circular or wedge shaped, and they are missing some of the images I can see on the page for the font, such as the circular arrow piece, but at least they do include images that can be used for Shogi and Xiangqi, and it would be possible to add these images to the appropriate shapes to make piece sets out of them.
