Earlier in the week KOEI Tecmo Japan stuck up an ominous teaser page along with the quote “The Fated Battle Begins”. This got a lot of chins wagging on what it could be, especially with “Fated Battle” often being associated with the Samurai Warriors franchise – which we know is currently in development on it’s 5th instalment. However it has now been revealed (thanks to Famitsu) that the teaser was for KOEI Tecmo’s horse racing simulation series Winning Post.
As you can see in the picture above, the teaser image has also been updated with two horses giving each other the death stare. Winning Post 9 will be coming to PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC next year in Japan.
The likelyhood of this title making it’s way westward is rather slim, as we haven’t had anything from the series since Champion Jockey for PS3/360/Wii back in 2011. However as usual the game will be freely able to be imported thanks to the region free consoles they’ll be arriving on.
So yeah conqueror’s out there, back to our daily routines. This here isn’t for us westerners.
What are your thoughts on Winning Post 9 being the teased game? Would you like to see the series return to the West? Let us know in those comments!
