New Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster Update Fixes Gameplay Bugs

Bandai Namco has announced that the tri-Crescendo and Monolithsoft turn-based JRPG, Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster, has been updated to version 1.03, implementing several bug fixes.

You can view a translation of these patch notes below via our team’s Ryuji:

The following bugs have been addressed for Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean:

  • Fixed a bug that would abnormally be carried over the inventory status of items in the store to other saved data.
  • Fixed an issue where descending a ladder at the Anuenue Port under a very specific condition would sometimes cause the player character would get stuck and softlock the game.
  • Certain special move effects that were not displayed properly were fixed.
  • Other minor bugs have been fixed.

The following bugs have been addressed for Baten Kaitos Origins:

  • Fixed an issue in Holoholo Jungle, where a certain boss would abnormally stop moving if the battle went on for more than a certain amount of time.
  • Other minor bugs have been fixed.

The package includes Baten Kaitos Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, which has players control a guardian spirit bonded with a youth named Kalas. He’s seeking vengeance for the murder of his grandfather and father. Kalas wears a mechanical wing called the Winglet and was born with the Wings of the Heart.

Baten Kaitos Origins is the second included game. It’s a 20-year prequel focusing on the young spiriter Sagi who, alongside his partner, is framed for the murder of the emperor. The story also connects to the events of Lost Ocean

This collective remaster enables Instant KO, No Encounters, and battle speed up to 300% speed as options for increased accessibility.

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 with the series’ prior outing.

Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster is available on Nintendo Switch.
