Artist Yasuyuki Honne from Monolith Soft was talking about a familiar name recently: Baten Kaitos.

Thanks to this translation from Siliconera, we know that a Baten Kaitos 3 was in development at one time, shortly after the release of Baten Kaitos Origins.

Unfortunately, it was cancelled.

Honne says Baten Kaitos 3 “would’ve been something grand, and would take you to the bottom of the seas, the earth, and the sky” and encourages fans to show Bandai Namco that there is interest in another Baten Kaitos game.

A few years ago, Bandai Namco producer Kensuke Tsukanaka also talked about the possibility of Baten Kaitos returning and said they would need “substantial feedback” about fan interest.

Nothing has happened since then, but it’s encouraging that people from both Bandai Namco and Monolith Soft have now discussed the possibility.

I’ve played and enjoyed Baten Kaitos, although I haven’t gotten to Baten Kaitos Origins yet. With the recent remasters and revivals we’ve seen, maybe we’ll get a Baten Kaitos collection to gauge interest in Baten Kaitos 3.

I’d love to see Baten Kaitos return. What do you think? Will Baten Kaitos 3 be developed after all?

We have 10 days left to reach our funding goal for Destiny Chronicles. Please check it out and spread the word if you enjoy RPGs.
