It wasn’t too long ago that KOEI Tecmo made a dramatic lead up to announce their next official instalment to their horse racing simulation series; Winning Post 9. A series that is madly popular in Japan but however isn’t seen the same outside of the region. Known as G1 Jockey / Champion Jockey in the West, this is the first time KOEI Tecmo has released a new numbered title in the series for some time (with 8 just getting yearly updates with the year in question tacked on).
Now KOEI Tecmo Japan have announced that the title will be releasing on March 14th, arriving alongside Samurai Warriors 4 DX. As with the latter no news of any western localisation has come to be, but due to it being region free it will be importable for those who really want to scratch that horse racing itch.
Winning Post 9 releases in Japan for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
