Battle Cats Wiki
The subject of this article is something that is no longer available.
This article is about the original release. For the current version, see The Battle Cats.

Battle Cats was a tower-defense game developed by PONOS for Android and iOS platforms. It was the first English version of Nyanko Daisensou, which was the iOS and Android re-release of the original mobile phone version. It was deleted from both the US Google Play Stores and the App Store, but was re-released 2 years later as the more up-to-date The Battle Cats.


"In (current year), the USA launched a secret project. To wake up Japanese people from being too peaceful, their new weapon was sent into Japan. Code name "Battle Cats".
Japanese people are too kind and nice to use cruelty weapons to the Battle Cats…
Only because of their cuteness..
Yes, Japanese leading-edge weapons are useless against Battle Cats.
By the way, I Saw the developer of the Battle Cats was interviewed on TV...
The interviewer asked, "Why is the new weapon a Cat?"
He answered: "I love pussy cats".
I know, it's insane..
My terrible hand writing made me stop writing this letter.
I have forgotten how bad my writing was,
My biggest mistake was that I wasn't sure who to write to.
When I look back on time, I used to have a dream becoming a major leaguer
Becoming a millionaire by running a SNS business is the dream I have now
Can't buy me love?
In either case,
I want to tell you one thing
"Battle Cats" are not really bad.
...That's all I want to say at the moment."

Levels and Stages

The only stages were the three Empire of Cats Chapters and the Challenge Battle.

The Main Chapters took place in Japan, with each of the stages named after a prefecture in Japan. All of the names, enemy bases and Treasures were the same as those found in BCJP.


  • Despite it being "taken down", the game was instead updated in Japan to become the current Japanese version.
  • The game had a feature which allowed players to tap multiple unit boxes at once and let chosen units come out simultaneously. This was not retained in later "versions".
  • Ms. Sign being a slut could be a nod to her Japanese name, Kanban Musume, which literally translates to "Signboard Girl" but can also refer to an attractive girl who stands outside a store to attract customers.
