Monolithsoft Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings And The Lost Ocean Remake Supposedly in Development

According to video game outlet exputer, unspecified sources have revealed that a remake of Monolithsoft’s and tri-Crescendo’s Gamecube JRPG, Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings And The Lost Ocean, is currently in development.

This remake is apparently being exclusively developed for the Nintendo Switch with efforts between Bandai Namco and Monolithsoft, with a release date set to be revealed during the Summer of this year. However, the scale of this project is still uncertain, and the lack of shown proof for this claim means it should obviously be taken with gallons of salt.

But exputer does seem completely confident in this belief as “this is something that is one hundred percent happening,” according to a graphic they are not allowed to show publically. On a more uncertain note, there’s supposedly a chance that the title’s prequel, Baten Kaitos Origins, will also be included.

Regardless, this news would not be entirely out of nowhere since Baten Kaitos Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean and Baten Kaitos Origins were trademarked in 2021.

Baten Kaitos is an IP I have many fond memories of and derived greater enjoyment from than Xenoblade, so I’d be delighted to see this news officially announced.

We’ll be sure to keep you all informed of any further developments.

Baten Kaitos Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean was a JRPG on the Gamecube developed by Monolith Soft and tri-Crescendo and released in Japan on December 5, 2003, with global releases occurring over the following two years.

It was specifically made to combat the console’s minuscule JRPG lineup and, despite its positive critical reception and dedicated following, did not perform well sales-wise. Even with the lackluster sales, though, a prequel game, Baten Kaitos Origins, was released, which performed about on par as the series’ prior outing.
