Famitsu announced today that an updated version of Winning Post 9, Koei Tecmo’s horse racing simulation game, will be coming to Nintendo Switch next year. Called Winning Post 9 2020, it’ll feature several improvements and some new content. The new features are as follows (credit goes to Gematsu for the translation):

  • Revival of the marriage and descendant succession systems.
  • Improvements to bond commands (can be executed from the racehorse screen, choose what you like from several utilities, etc.).
  • No more randomness in the system of meeting new connections (you can make connections at events, and there are also bond commands that enable you to meet new connections).
  • You can establish a club.
  • Implementation of a future scenario that starts in 2021.
  • Ability to transfer save data from Winning Post 9.
  • If you have save data from Winning Post 8 on your system, you can get special bonuses.
  • Noel Himeka added as a secretary, who also has several different costumes depending on the season:

The game will be released in March 2020 in Japan. A Western release hasn’t been announced yet and seems fairly unlikely, given past precedent with this series.
