Empire of Cats is the first saga in The Battle Cats/Nyanko Daisensou and is unlocked from the beginning. This mode contains 3 chapters, with 48 stages in each. Collecting all Treasures available in each stage is the main goal in this mode.


In most versions of The Battle Cats, Empire of Cats focuses on the Cats taking over Earth and the Moon, but in the Japanese Version, they only take over Japan. As a result, the Japanese Version has different names, Treasures, backgrounds and enemy bases for most levels, though the levels themselves play out the same in all versions.


Amongst all the global issues, civil wars, financial crises, terrorism, a brand new threat appears...
"The Battle Cats"
We found it too hard to fight back...because...these Cats...are too cute.
We are powerless to their reign. We cannot stop their legion.
Come to think of it, Cats have already invaded the internet too...We have the best information technology systems and use them to look at Cats.
By the way, the developer of these Battle Cats was interviewed on TV. It went like this...
"Why is the new weapon a Cat?"
and he answered -
"Because I love Cats."
...are you serious?
I just read what I've written. It's horrible. I've forgotten how bad my writing was.
My biggest mistake was I don't know who I am writing to...
I remember my days as a kid, I wanted to be a major leaguer.
Now...Now I want to be a millionaire CEO of a Social Networking Service.
I mean, if you have money, you don't need love, right?
Whatever the answer is...I want to tell you one thing.
The "Battle Cats" aren't so bad.
That's pretty much it.


After all the battles, the world was overrun by the Battle Cats.
A government of the Cats, by the Cats, for the Cats is the new world!
Or that's what I thought...
In the end, nothing really changed.
Well, if I have to say something, I see a lot more Cats nowadays.
That's pretty much it.
Oh, by the way, I had a "Cat" come into my office for a job interview, he didn't get in.
We might be really busy, but a Cat...
is just a Cat.
However, I do feel lucky if I see one, in the office or at school.
Wouldn't you?
Congratulations to The Battle Cats!
Thank you Battle Cats!
Battle Cats Forever!
Thank you for Playing!!

Treasure Explanation

Main article: Treasure

These Treasures can be split into three groups (in ascending order): Inferior, Normal, and Superior. When completing a stage, you have a chance to earn a Treasure (quality is random). You can try a stage again to get higher Treasure quality.

Using a Treasure Radar in a stage will result in a guaranteed Superior Treasure.

Completing a set of Treasures activates its associated effect. Effectiveness is determined by the quality of the whole set.
