When Baten Kaitos I and II HD Remaster comes to the Switch, it will include some new features. Bandai Namco released a Q&A going over everything people can expect. In addition to remastered visuals and a stable 30FPS frame rate, there will be an option to turn on auto-battle and completely turn off encounters. The company also confirmed that only Japanese voice acting will be present.
Bandai Namco noted that there wouldn’t be any additional content added or removed. There will also be no DLC available. However, the new features are designed with accessibility in mind. Encounters can be turned off or left on. Someone can choose to skip cutscenes. The UI and menus will look clearer. An auto-save option will also be present. There will also be 30 save file slots for each game in the collection.
The Baten Kaitos I and II HD Remaster localizations were also confirmed. While only Japanese voice acting will appear, Baten Kaitos Origins will feature English, Japanese, Korean, and both simplified and traditional Chinese subtitles. More language options will be available for Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. In addition to the five options above, people could also select French, German, Italian, or Spanish subtitles.
Baten Kaitos I and II HD Remaster will come to the Nintendo Switch in Summer 2023.
