Namco's Newest RPG Now Available
San Jose, Calif., Kalas is awaiting your guidance. Leading video games publisher and developer Namco Hometek Inc. announced
today that their most breathtaking role-playing adventure yet, Baten
Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, has shipped to North American
Available exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube, Baten Kaitos takes players
on an intense and innovative epic journey to save a world in crisis. Set in
a civilization on the verge of destruction from a powerful and ancient
conspiracy, players join Kalas and Xelha -- two unlikely heroes -- as they
embark on an uncertain journey in hopes of saving their cherished world.
Unlike the typical card-based video game, Baten Kaitos introduces an
engaging battle and item system, providing more than 1,000 different objects
that players can use to aid the story¹s heroes on their way. Magnus cards
are used to capture the essence of certain objects, weapons, or spells, for
use in solving puzzles, combat, healing, and more.
The game's stunning graphics, brilliant 3D character designs by Nakaba
Higurashi, and its mystical nature set Baten Kaitos apart from other titles
within the RPG genre, said Garry Cole, executive vice president at Namco
Hometek Inc. The overall beauty of the game and the unique Magnus card
battle system are sure to meet the high expectations of RPG fans in the U.S.
