High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Baten Kaitos Origins is a 2006 role-playing video game first unveiled at the 2005 Tokyo Game Show by Namco and Monolith Soft. The official name was revealed at E3 2006 on May 10, 2006. It is the second game in the Baten Kaitos series, and a prequel to Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. Unlike the first game which was published by Namco in Japan, North America and Europe, the sequel was published in these regions by Nintendo except for Europe, where the game was never released. It was released on February 23, 2006 in Japan, and in North America on September 25, 2006. Shortly after the North American release of Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, Nintendo revealed a list of upcoming Nintendo DS games including one titled Baten Kaitos DS. While speculation suggested that this was a version of Baten Kaitos Origins intended for the DS, the game never materialized, and instead disappeared from Namco's own list of upcoming games in October 2005.
