This appears to be a good 3D variant that maintains some level of simplicity, so would not be as intimidating for beginners and would retain some of the orthochess feel. Here is an idea for a Tower Shogi setup:

L N Y X L
X S G S N
Y G K G Y
N S G S X
L X Y N L

...where x represents a forward-only 2x2x3 leaper, and y represents a forward-only 2x3x3 leaper. The bishops would be on ba2 and de2, and the rooks on da2 and be2, with the pawns on the row in front. To maintain the 3 space distance between the pawns as in standard Shogi, an extra file could be added.
