Baten Kaitos, a saga on the wire
Baten Kaitos fans haven’t received any news for over 10 years. The role-playing saga of Monolith Soft, creators of Xenoblade, had a third installment planned. However, certain “circumstances” prevented it from materializing. It got to be in pre-production. “It would have been a large-scale title with scenes located on the seabed, land and sky,” explained its director, Yasuyuki Honne. The creative points out that it still hurts him not to have returned to her.
“The sequel requests should be directed not only at me or Monolith Soft, but also at Bandai Namco,” said Honne, given the constant requests from the community in recent years. In fact, he himself knows that he exists “Lots of concept art” in the Bandai Namco drawers, so some of the work would already be done.
