Nyanko Daisensou (にゃんこ大戦争, "Nyanko Great War") was a subscription-based tower defense game available on older generations of mobile phones. Developed by PONOS and released in 2010. In July 2011 it received a sequel, Kumanchu Royale, and in 2012 it was re-released under the same name, but with more content and stages. It remained available under the name Ganso!! Nyanko Daisensou (元祖!!にゃんこ大戦争, "Original!! Nyanko Great War") until January 6th, 2015, when it was discontinued alongside Kumanchu Royale.


It was was a basic tower defense game about an army of Cat Units taking over Japan, with the same gameplay and story as the re-release.


Cat Units

The only cats in the game were the first nine Normal Cats. No True Forms existed in this version.

Enemy Units

The only Enemy Units were Shy Boy, Assassin Bear and the Empire of Cats Chapter 1 enemies (minus Ms. Sign). Since there were only two enemy types, Traitless and Red, enemies like The Face and Assassin Bear were considered Traitless.


The only stages were Empire of Cats Chapter 1 and the Challenge Battle; Chapters 2 and 3 were added in the re-release.



  • Units in this version would display the first frame of their idle animation when knocked back, rather than having their own unique knockback sprites.
  • This version was created when PONOS only had nine employees, so the art style and character designs had to be very basic.[1]
