Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster Story Trailer Released

Bandai Namco released a new story trailer for the upcoming release of Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster. The video features a prophecy that helps drive the events of Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean and its prequel Baten Kaitos Origins, the two games that are featured in remastered versions in the collection.

Developed by Monolith Soft and tri-Cresendo, and originally released on Nintendo GameCube, Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean and Baten Kaitos Origins feature card-based combat systems and mechanics, with players taking on the role of a guardian spirit who guides the protagonists on their journey. Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean follows Kalas who joins Xelha as both seek to defeat the Alfard Empire for their own reasons. Baten Kaitos Origins takes place twenty years prior to Eternal Wings and follows Sagi, a member of an elite unit in the Alfard Empire who seeks to clear his name.

Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster is planned to release internationally for Nintendo Switch on September 14, 2023. The HD Remaster versions of the games will come with Japanese-only voice overs and will feature improved graphics, as well as options to turn encounters off, auto-battle, a cutscene skip option, and auto-save.

  1. I am still miffed at the lack of the English dub for both games. Origins (Baten Kaitos II) has a fantastic English dub, and as tinny-sounding and poor as the acting is in the first game, I still love it so much. There’s a certain charm to its campiness.

    Even so, I hope this remaster does well. I don’t know when I’ll get around to playing it, but I’m definitely buying it on day one.

    Here is to hoping they get MASSIVE backlash and they add the eng dub in a patch.
