There's a Baten Kaitos game planned for the DS, but there has been absolutely no news about it. Originally, according to Wikipedia, it was the prequel to the first BK, having the same title as the GC Origins (The Start of the Wings and the Heir of God) we know now. A few months after the announcement of the DS game, Origins was announced, with the name of the DS game. I wonder what the DS game is now, since it's no longer a sequel?

Are you sure? According to Wikipedia's article, it's unknown whether it's still in production.

I would think that it is in fact cancelled, though.

From an interview with Monolith Soft's president ( http://www.cubed3.com/article/5654/ ):

Quote
C3: When the Nintendo DS was originally announced, a list of future games was released that included a version of Baten Kaitos. However, since Xenosaga I & II was revealed and released in Japan nothing has been heard about BK on the DS. Is the project still alive?

HS: Please ask Namco for this question, because they sell the title. We are strongly willing to develop this.

[ In response, one of Namco’s Producers said the following: "The Baten Kaitos DS project has been stopped once. Further development
is currently undecided at this point." ]

Great series. The first BK is one of my favorite RPGs of last-gen. It's the closest thing we have to additional Chrono games. I really hope there's a sequel in the works, but I'm not sure whether there's some sort of rights SNAFU between Nintendo and Namco.
