Thanks, Famitsu.

Update 6:10 a.m.: Winning Post 8 2018 will launch on March 15, 2018 in Japan. It will cost 7,800 yen on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC, and 6,800 yen on PS Vita.

The horse racing simulation game includes the 2018 race program and latest racehorse data. The latest data also includes overseas GI races such as “The Everest.”

The evolved training system enables players to freely train their favorite horse using their own directions. By setting the “Course,” “Strength,” and “Abreast Horse,” you can train your horse in various ways. Up until now, a racehorse’s abilities were indicated by four levels, but now they are indicated by 16 levels.

Additionally, various bonding events in which players will mingle with both riders and horses are being prepared.

Development is currently 60 percent complete.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
