Last week, Koei Tecmo teased a new game for multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch. The website for this title featured a flame-filled background and noted how the "fated battle" would begin on 6th December.

It turns out the announcement was for the next entry in the horse racing simulation series, Winning Post. This week's issue of Famitsu revealed the news slighter earlier than expected. The teaser website is now also showing a pair of horses in the background of the existing image. Winning Post 9 is expected to be released on the Switch in March 2019 and will likely remain exclusive to Japan.
