Koei Tecmo has published a new trailer for Winning Post 9 2020 today, which you can watch below. The horse racing sim is an upgraded re-release of Winning Post 9 and will be released in Japan on March 12.

A recent issue of Nintendo Dream features an interview with the producer (Daisuke Kaneda) and composer (Atsushi Kitajoh) of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.

The two were asked if gamers who haven’t played Persona 5 could enjoy the story of Persona 5 Scramble, considering the game is being promoted as a sequel. They also explained their approach to designing the new characters, the world, and writing the new music for the game as well.

We’ve prepared a full translation below:

Persona 5, along with its enhanced re-release Persona 5 Royal, have never appeared on Switch. However, that hasn’t stopped Atlus and Koei Tecmo from bringing Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers to Nintendo’s console. This new game mashes up RPG and action gameplay from both companies and also features a story set six months after the original title.

For Nintendo fans, not having experience with Persona 5 apparently won’t be a huge barrier. Producer Daisuke Kaneda, speaking with Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream in a recent issue, says Persona 5 Scramble’s story can still be enjoyed even if you haven’t gone through the PlayStation 4 RPG.
