Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has announced that Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster is now available on Nintendo Switch.
These two RPG masterpieces, originally released on the Gamecube, have returned with enhanced visual fidelity and new accessibility features that will modernize the game for a wider audience.
Additionally, the soundtracks for Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean and Baten Kaitos Origins containing 118 tracks are now available on Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, and other music distribution services.
Here’s an overview of the game:
The Baten Kaitos series features distinct card-based RPG play mechanics that allow for split-second decisions that edge participants closer to victory. In each title, players will take the role of a Guardian Spirit and guide the protagonist and companions through unique adventures in each game:
- Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean tells the story of Kalas who, while seeking revenge for the death of his brother and grandfather, meets Xelha as they both embark on a journey to defeat the Alfard Empire.
- Baten Kaitos Origins takes place 20 years before the events of the first game. The story involves Sagi, a “spiriter” that has a connection with Guardian Spirits who is part of the Dark Service, an elite unit of the Alfard Empire. Sagi sets on a journey to clear his name after being framed, and to unveil the empire’s secrets.
Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster enhances the game play of the original games with new features. The remaster includes an “Instant KO” setting that will let players defeat the enemy in one single attack, a major increase to game and battle speeds, and a “No Encounters” setting that will let players avoid battles, along with additional new settings that support game progression.
