I'm sure almost no one knows the Baten Kaitos series, but there were two games released for the Gamecube back in 2004 and then in 2006, Baten Kaitos Origins.
I remember seeing an article on Baten Kaitos DS which was pretty funny considering I thought the gameplay mechanics would be superb when using the DS' touchscreen when I got the game a few months after release. I think bringing a new Baten Kaitos game to the 3DS would be a solid addition for it considering there hasn't been any announcement (from what I've heard) on any traditional JRPGs. Reviving that DS project to bring it over to the 3DS will certainly make my day since I loved how unique the game was. And the music was phenominal, and it was one of the best looking games on the Gamecube with a blend of pre-rendered art that looked gorgeous and it blended in so well. I'm sure the series would fine a perfect home on the 3DS since picking out cards to set up for amazing special attacks would feel a lot more natural with the touchscreen.
Namco and Nintendo, get tri-Crecendo to work on it!
Also, I don't know his name, but the composer for the Baten Kaitos games is the same one who composes music for the Mario Sports series and Golden Sun. I knew the composition of the music in Baten Kaitos sounded so... familiar. Would anyone be up for Baten Kaitos on 3DS? Especially for those who are familiar with the games?

I've played them, but I don't know. I only got a little bit into the first one. There weren't any groundbreaking mechanics, nobody really had a specialty and the cartoony style font annoyed me. That being said, take my opinions with a grain of salt as I only got partway into one of them.

Motoi Sakuraba. He also does a lot of the Tales of series.
He's my favorite for giving us Fighting of the Spirit, lol.
Also, I still need to pick these up sometime. D:

I thoroughly enjoyed the first one despite the bad voices but the second one kinda felt stale

I also loved the first one but the second one didn't do much for me either. I would definitely look into a 3ds version though.

I'm finding this game way too distracting. I would much rather be playing it right now rather than working!

lol It's okay. I won't attack you for not having the same opinion about the game. I still have to beat the first one as I cannot beat.. Well, I don't want to spoil it, but I was close to beating this person a few times and like many RPGs, the enemies miraculously attack 'more' times than they actually should.
That's really frustrating... :/

I would love a new one but just from that comment it got me thinking how odd this situation is.... Nintendo now owns Monolith and Tri-Crescendo is rumoured to be part of that Digital Works Entertainment(who annnounced a 3DS games agess ago) and (I think) Namco might still have the rights to the franchise...

Nope. Nintendo published the second one

I liked the first. Even though the voice acting made me want to scream (the one and only time I've turned voice acting off on a game).
Never played the second, but then never felt the game had a world that asked for a sequel.

Wasn't Baten Kaitos Origins a prequel?

I've got both games in my collection, but they're one of the ones I've yet to really dive into. I keep hearing great things, so I got them, but haven't done much. I played about 10 minutes into the first, and couldn't quite get into/understand the battle system, but if I can warm up to it, it should be good. So far I LOVE the setting.
Here's a question, though: should I play through Origins first, or the original? I read one reviewer who made the connection to Star Wars and its prequels, saying he was jealous of kids who could grow up watching the movies in order. That is the way I intend to show my kids that series, as I feel there's more weight to it that way. Is Baten Kaitos the same? When I start trying to get into it, should I start with the original or the prequel?

I have both games but I've only played Origins. I want to play the first one, but a 70 hour game is a pretty big commitment for me at the moment. As for Origins, I originally started playing it only to make sure it was working (I bought it used). Within 10 minutes I was so into the game that I couldn't stop. Unfortunately that meant sticking with the stupid name I gave myself when I thought I would just be playing for a couple minutes (I named myself food because I was hungry at the time). It also managed to keep me interested throughout the entire 70+ hours. Very, very few games are good enough to do something like that, and it serves as a testament to this game's brilliance.
I had heard of the DS game, but I thought it was originally going to be a port...I don't know if I'd buy the same game again, despite how awesome this particular game is. If they were to make a new entry in the series for the 3DS (or the Wii, for that matter) I would definitely be interested in getting it as soon as possible. Who knows, it could even use AR cards.

I have both. I had a hard time getting into the first one, but I absolutely loved the second. The story twist was awesome and the voice acting was really good. I'd like to go back and finish both one of these days.

I've seen these games but I know little to noting about them.

Didn't the characters sound... robotic to you? Xelha's voice really sounded like it...

I loved Baten Kaitos have both and i finished the first one, got to the chicken boss on the second and lost my memory card
I loved the ending of the first and if ur stuck, i say keep at it! i for one was surprised by the twist at the end. The combat system is really fun although it seemed to be more luck than strategy (at least to me) but once u get the hang of it u can chain crazy combos! (sunrise and sunsets are vital for the final stages of the game)If you own the game and havent played or if u can find it used i highly recommend it!
BTW regarding the voice acting, It seems terribad at first but as u get further into the game it does get better and clearer. The whole idea behind it is that as the player u are a spirit and u cant hear very well but as u get further into the game and you "bond" with the characters it will get better
