Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has announced that Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster, a remastered collection of both Baten Kaitos games originally released on the Nintendo GameCube, is coming to the Nintendo Switch on September 14th 2023.
This comes alongside a new trailer that shows more gameplay from the remaster:
The Baten Kaitos series features a distinct card-based RPG system that allows for split-second decisions to bring participants closer to victory. Players will take the role of a Guardian Spirit and guide each game’s protagonist and their companions through their journey.
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 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 who has a connection with Guardian Spirits and 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 unveil the empire’s secrets.
A Digital Artbook for the game will also be included as a Package exclusive early purchase bonus. The art book will include concept art from both the original games and the remaster.
Baten Kaitos 1 & II HD Remaster will launch for Nintendo Switch on the 14th of September 2023.
