With its concentration on the orthogonals this variant puts me in mind of Wellisch Hex, Xiang Qi, and even Tetrahedral Chess. Wellisch can be seen as a hex pre-Cannon XQ with a touch of Mongolian Chess thrown in, and this can be seen a hex post-Cannon XQ but replacing the short-range pieces with pieces from the -ima family of variants.
