Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. announced today that Baten Kaitos: I & II HD Remaster, a remastered collection of both  Baten Kaitos games originally released on the Nintendo GameCube, is coming to Nintendo Switch on September 14, 2023.

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 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 to unveil the empire’s secrets.
