Battle Cats Wiki

Nyanko Daisensou was a tower-defense and strategy game developed by PONOS and released for Japanese mobile phones in 2010. On November 15th, 2012, it was re-released for iOS devices under the same name but with more content and polish, the old version renamed to Ganso! Nyanko Daisensou. The same day, this updated version was made available outside of Japan under the name Battle Cats from November 15th, 2012 to January 10th, 2013, when it was last updated and was removed from both the Google Play Store and the App Store. On September 17th, 2014, the English version reappeared under the name The Battle Cats.



The main game has two main servers, Japanese and International. The Japanese Version has been updated from version 1.0 to this day. However the International Version, which was separated later, was removed abruptly at version 1.5. Then it continues at version 2.0 as a separate game.
