Empire of Cats (日本編 Nihon-hen, Japan Arc) 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. Chapter 1 has been available since Ganso!! Nyanko Daisensou, while Chapters 2 and 3 were introduced in the re-release, Nyanko Daisensou.

Version 5.6 added Zombie Outbreaks to Chapter 1, Version 5.7 brought them to Chapter 2, and Version 5.8 brought them to Chapter 3.

Story[]

The Empire of Cats opening plays every time the player opens the game. 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 the 47 prefectures of Japan and Iriomote Island. 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.

In all versions except the English Version, the Empire of Cats opening is stated to begin on New Year's Eve of whatever year the device's clock is set to. For example, if the current year is 2024, Empire of Cats starts on the last day of 2024.

Empire of Cats Opening (EN)
Empire of Cats Ending (EN)

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… so 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?
YES / NO




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?


Anyways,


Congratulations to The Battle Cats!


Thank you Battle Cats!


Battle Cats Forever!

Empire of Cats Ending (JP)

2024年、大晦日。
日本列島が血に染まる…
2024, New Year's Eve.
The Japanese archipelago is stained with blood...

経済低迷、政治不信
弱体化し続ける日本に
とつじょとして
現れた「にゃんこ軍団」
Economic weakness, political distrust.
As Japan continued to weaken,
suddenly,
the "Cat Army" appeared.

狂瀾怒濤…冷酷無残
…支離滅裂…和気藹藹
焼肉定食…愛羅武勇…
Turbulent... heartless and cruel
...incongruous... harmonious
yakiniku set meal... I love you...

四字熟語っぽいのを並べてみたが
奴らの進軍を止めることはできない
I tried to set up some four-kanji set phrases,
but that cannot stop their advance.

そういえば、
「にゃんこ」と「ちゃんこ」は
響きが似ている
しかし「にゃんこ鍋」は
あまり見たくないものだ
By the way, "Nyanko" and "Chanko"
sound similar,
but "Nyankonabe" is
something I don't really want to see.

にゃんこを丁寧に言うと
「おにゃんこ」となる
ちょっと懐かしいと感じた人は
いい年頃の人だろう
The polite way to say "Nyanko"
is "Onyanko".
Those who find it a little nostalgic
are probably at a good age (sarcasm)

この前、手紙を書こうとして
書き始めたのはいいが
久々に書いた自分の字が
余りにも汚くて
途中でやめてしまったのを
思い出した
I just remembered that the
other day, I tried writing a letter,
but it was my first time writing in a while
and my handwriting was so bad
that I stopped halfway through.

そもそも誰に出すかも
決めずに書き始めたのが
一番の失敗だ
My biggest mistake was that
I started writing without deciding
who to send it to in the first place.

子供の頃、大きくなったら
野球選手になりたいとか
平気な顔して言っていたけど
今思うと恥ずかしい
When I was a kid, I said with a straight face
that I wanted to be a baseball player
when I grew up, but
it's embarrassing when I think about it now.

まぁ、
漫画家で大金持ち。
それは成れるものなら
今でも成りたいと思ってる
Well,
if possible,
I still want to be a
manga artist with a lot of money.

お金があれば
愛なんていらない?
はい いいえ
If you have money,
you don't need love?
Yes No

どっちが正しいかなんて
正直どうでもいいんだけど
To be honest, I don't
really care which is correct, but

ただ一つだけ
言いたいことは
I just want to say
one thing.

「にゃんこ軍団」は
そんなに悪い奴らじゃないよ♪
The "Cat Army"
is not so bad♪

…ってことぐらいだ
...That's pretty much it.

こうして
日本はにゃんこ軍団によって
完全に制圧された…
And so,
Japan was completely
conquered by the Cat Army...

にゃんこ軍団の
にゃんこ軍団による
にゃんこ軍団の為の政治が
今、はじまるのだ!
A government of the Cat Army,
by the Cat Army,
for the Cat Army
begins now!

…と思っていたけど
...was what I thought, but,

けっきょく
ボク達の生活が変わることは
まったく無かった
in the end,
there was no change in
our lives at all.

変わったことと言えば
ちょっとだけ
「ネコ」が増えた
Speaking of things that have changed,
the number of "Cats"
has increased just a bit.

それぐらいだ
That's about it.

あ、そうそう
Ah, yes,

このまえボクが働いている
会社の面接に
にゃんこが来ていた
the other day, a Cat
came for a job interview
at the company where I work.

まぁ、いくら忙しいとはいえ
やっぱり「ネコ」なので
結果は不採用だったんだけど…
Well, no matter how busy we are,
he's still a "Cat" after all,
so he didn't get in...

でも、
However,

もし会社や学校に
にゃんこがいたら…
if I see a Cat
at work or at school...

なんだかちょっとだけ
うれしいと思うのは
ボクだけかな?(笑)
It makes me feel just a little bit
happy for some reason.
Is it just me? (laughs)

どちらにせよ
Anyways,

おめでとう
にゃんこ軍団!
ありがとう
にゃんこ軍団!
Congratulations,
Cat Army!
Thank you,
Cat Army!

にゃんこ軍団よ
永遠に!!
Cat Army
forever!

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.

Trivia[]

  • Most of the enemy bases in the English version of Empire of Cats were taken directly from Kumanchu Royale.
  • From version 12.0 onward, playing on December 31st shows an alternate version of the Empire of Cats intro in which True Superfeline steadily approaches the player. At the end of the intro, the screen turns red, alluding to the line, "2022, New Year's Eve. The Japanese archipelago is stained with blood," (2022年、大晦日。日本列島が血に染まる) from the Japanese Version's intro.
  • Master of Mind Catcrates' Japanese description directly references the line, "'Nyanko' and 'Chanko' sound similar," (にゃんこ」と「ちゃんこ」は響きが似ている) from the Japanese Version's intro.
  • "A government of the Cats, by the Cats, for the Cats is the new world!" is a reference to the Gettysburg Address, in which Abraham Lincoln famously stated that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
  • There are only three enemy types in Empire of Cats: Traitless, Red and Floating.
  • In the Taiwanese Version, stages 1 and 2 are Taiwan and Hong Kong instead of Korea and Mongolia, which appear later in place of Philippines and Cambodia respectively. Due to the additions of Taiwan and Hong Kong, Philippines and Cambodia do not appear as playable stages in the Taiwanese Version. The only differences are the stage names, Treasure names and enemy bases.
