Winning Post 9 is slated for release in Japan in March 2019 for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It’s currently 90% complete. If you’re not familiar with the series, it’s one of Japan’s most popular horse racing simulations, which is a rather popular genre among mature players in the country.
It’s unlikely that it’ll be localized in the west, as only Winning Post EX for Sega Saturn was released in the west in 1995. Koei Tecmo has proved uninterested in localizing the series since which isn’t surprising considering how niche it is outside of Japan.
Samurai Warriors fans can at least find some solace inthe recent announcementof Samurai Warriors 4 DX for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
