The return of Baten Kaitos has sparked some significant intrigue. The original GameCube title is most certainly a cult classic, and now there’s an audience eagerly awaiting this updated package. Particularly in Europe, where Baten Kaitos Origins (aka Baten Kaitos II) wasn’t originally localised for sale. Following the initial reveal of the Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster Switch release earlier this year, publisher Bandi Namco Entertainment has revealed a host of additional features.

Some of the newly revealed Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster Switch features are quite interesting. The game will let players increase the game speed and battle speed, turn off enemy encounters or auto battle. You’ll also be able to turn on auto-save, and and it’ll even have both New Game + and New Game – options. New Game+ allows players can bring their level, rank, and Magnus to a fresh playthrough. New Game– will present a greater challenge.

Below is the full list on what’s been revealed for Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster by Namco Bandai Entertainment thus far.
