Back the Gamecube there weren’t as many games as the other systems but overall the games that were on it were of very high quality. One such quality game was a RPG called Baten Kaitos. While there is a rumored image for a new Baten Kaitos floating around, the last official Baten Kaitos related content came in the form of its prequel back in 2006.
In a recent interview, Project X Zone 2‘s producer Kensuke Tsukanaka was asked about Baten Kaitos and if we’ll see the series in any form again.
Here’s what he said:
“So, do you remember that KOS-MOS and T-elos, from Xenosaga, were in the first Project X Zone game? We didn’t include them just because Monolith Soft was developing Project X Zone, we put them in there because there were so many fans of their games on the team, and that they happened to make sense for the world of the game.
The reason there’s not Baten Kaitos characters in the story is because they just didn’t seem to fit in anywhere. As for [Baten Kaitos] itself outside of Project X Zone, well, I can’t really say much about that yet, but I think we need some substantial feedback from fans before moving forward with a project like that. What do they want to see from it? What platform do they want to see it on? If we can gather more voices for Baten Kaitos, then maybe we can start something with Bandai Namco Entertainment. That’s about all I can say right now!”
There’s a chance of the game still being able to come out. However, like many publishers right now, they need us to voice our thoughts and opinions on the game. If you’re interested in Baten Kaitos, let Bandai Namco know.
