Today during the Nintendo direct that Baten Kaitos Ⅰ & Ⅱ would be getting the remastered treatment. These GameCube classics will coming to us this summer, and I’m personally pretty stoked for these.
Here is more from the press release:
Players will have the opportunity to discover or rediscover the emotional journeys of the BATEN KAITOS series, which features distinct card-based RPG systems that allow for split-second decisions that edges 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 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.
