Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster Launches on Nintendo Switch, First Re-Release Since Nintendo Gamecube

Two hidden RPG gems of the Nintendo Gamecube era, Bandai Namco Entertainment has finally made both Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean and its prequel Baten Kaitos Origins onto the Nintendo Switch as part of the Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster Collection. This digital exclusive collection is now available to download via the Nintendo eShop for $69.95 AUD or local equivalent, and features both games in-full, in addition to a handful of visual fidelity improvements and new accessibility features.

The Baten Kaitos duology features a unique card-based RPG play mechanics that allow for split-second decisions, edging 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.

In Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, players will fill the shoes of protagonist 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 on the other hands takes place 20 years prior to the first and follows Sagi,  a “spiriter” that has a connection with Guardian Spirits and 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 Collection’s accessibility features allow players to enjoy both games how they were originally meant to be played, or, use a number of features to tailor their experience. These include 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.
