Baten Kaitos Remaster

We announced it last February, and now it’s finally official. The beloved JRPG series, Baten Kaitos, which includes Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean from 2003 and Baten Kaitos: Origins from 2006, is set to make a comeback at the end of summer with a remastered bundle for the Nintendo Switch. Named Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster, this collection will feature updated and enhanced versions of both games and will be available in Europe starting September 15.

Baten Kaitos

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, originally released in 2003, was developed by Monolith Soft and tri-Crescendo. The game follows the journey of Kalas and Xelha as they seek revenge against the Alfard Empire. With the HD remaster, players will enjoy an updated game version with improved graphics and a more immersive world. This beloved title captivated gamers with its unique card-based battle system and engaging storyline, and now it’s ready to be rediscovered by fans and newcomers alike.

The second game included in the bundle is Baten Kaitos: Origins, a prequel set twenty years before the events of Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. This installment focuses on the story of Sagi, a spirit user, and offers players an entirely new adventure. Previously unreleased in Europe, Baten Kaitos: Origins will provide fans with a fresh and exciting experience, delving deeper into the lore and expanding the Baten Kaitos universe.

Beyond the visual upgrades, Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster will also introduce gameplay enhancements. Players can activate cheat codes at any time, allowing them to remove random encounters, defeat opponents with a single blow, increase character and battle speed (up to three times faster), and even activate automatic battles. These additions provide flexibility for both new and returning players, allowing them to tailor their experience to their preferences.

It’s worth noting that while both games will feature the original Japanese voice acting, only Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean will include multilingual subtitles, including Italian. On the other hand, Baten Kaitos: Origins will be available with subtitles in English and Japanese, allowing players to appreciate the original performances while immersing themselves in the captivating narratives.
