Into the Future is the second saga in The Battle Cats and is unlocked after clearing Chapter 1 of Empire of Cats. This mode contains 3 additional chapters, with 48 levels in each once again. This mode also introduces Timed Score Rewards, in which you gain bonus rewards depending on how quickly you complete a stage.

The main gimmick of this saga is the debut of Alien Enemies; they are extremely strong, don't give much cash, and have a 700% strength magnification by default, which can only be reduced by the anti-Alien Crystals you may obtain as Treasure.

Lastly, the deployment cost for Cat Units is that of Legend Stages and EoC Chapter 2, which means you pay 1.5x for the base price of a unit.


In Into the Future, the Cats have time traveled from Empire of Cats to 29XX, when hostile Aliens have invaded every country on Earth. The ending reveals that a rocket is being built by the Cats, alluding to Cats of the Cosmos. Unlike Empire of Cats, the English and Japanese versions of Into the Future take place across the same locations.


It is the future...
1st April, 29XX
On that day, Aliens came to this planet.
But, hey, what's this? Was it just bad timing?
The people of Earth brushed the visitors off like weirdos.
Their revenge on the humans who ignored them took many forms:
Sinking Japan... Psychic activity... Mind-control implants... Floating cities... Reality television... Unspeakable probing...
Sure, some guys weren't too happy. But lets not worry about that.
Oh yeah, by the way: I've been an alien from space all along.
The changes we made to earth creatures are the symbol of our rule. Lately, you see guys on the street with THAT growing from their head.
Earth has no words to explain what THAT is.
You'd definitely die of embarrassment if you tried to describe THAT.
A real gentleman would never dare mention THAT in public.
That's how awfully shocking THAT is.
Anyhow, I've got 8 of THAT growing on my head.
We had just about invaded every country in the world, but then... some really troublesome guys appeared without warning.
Their name is... Cat Army.
We heard they'd conquered the past... and now they came to invade our future.
There's just one thing I want to say to the Cat Army:
♪Aliens aren't so bad after all
Well, it is true that we sunk Japan...
Well, lets not waste any more time. On to the greatest showdown:


And so... the Alien empire fell before the power of the Cat Army.
A new world has emerged: of the Cats, by the Cats, for the Cats! This life will surely become even more punishing and cruel! Aaagh!
Well, that's what I thought.
But... In the end, nothing really changed.
Well, if I have to say something. Cats star in a lot more TV dramas these days.
That's pretty much it.
Now we have lots of cute "big sister" characters on TV. Aliens became less trendy so we don't get parts anymore.
Hey, do you remember THAT? Well, pushing and pulling on THAT is the new comedy boom.
Oh, one more thing.
I just got back from drinking with the Cats...
They were a little tipsy, but they seemed very interested in our planet.
I was cornered for over an hour... They kept asking things like: "Is there Cat Food over there?"
They were so persistent I finally just said, "Yeah, sure!"
Suddenly their eyes were gleaming with childlike joy.
I hear they're building a rocket now.
Do you think...? No, there's no way...
Anyhow... Congratulations to The Battle Cats!
Thank You Battle Cats!
Onward into an endless universe!!!

(more to be added)


  • The Time Machine Treasure bears some resemblance to the DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future, as it has wheels that turn sideways like in the 2nd movie and rocket thrusters in the back.
  • China, Jamaica and the Moon are the only stages to retain their positions from Empire of Cats, being respectively the 3rd, 36th and 48th locations visited in both campaigns.
  • Maldives and Hawaii are the only locations visited in Empire of Cats to not appear in Into the Future, since Floating Continent and The Great Abyss weren't in Empire of Cats, so some levels had to be replaced.
