Into the Future (未来編 Mirai-hen, Future Arc) 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.

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. Chapters 2 and 3 don't change the price.

Version 7.4 brought Zombie Outbreaks to Chapter 1, Version 8.8 brought them to Chapter 2, and Version 9.5 brought them to Chapter 3.

Story[]

In Into the Future, the Cats have time travelled from Empire of Cats to the far future, when hostile Aliens who arrived on April 1st, 29XX have invaded every country on Earth. After stopping the invasion and defeating the Aliens, it is revealed 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.

In all versions except the English Version, the year the Aliens landed on Earth is 900 years ahead of whatever year the device's clock is set to. For example, if the current year is 2024, the opening will say the Aliens arrived in 2924.

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 embarassment
if you tried to even describe THAT.

A real gentleman would never dare
mention THAT in public.

NEVER.

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.
I mean, they didn't even look tired…


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:
ALIEN vs CAT

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!!!

…ここは未来…
西暦2924年4月1日
ワレワレはこの惑星に降り立った
...It is the future...
1st April, 2924
On that day, we landed on this planet.

ところがどうだ
日にちが悪かったのか
なぜか人類はワレワレのことを
認めようとしない
But what's this?
Was it just bad timing?
For some reason,
humans didn't make any effort to
acknowledge us.

日本沈没…超常現象…
遠隔操作…浮遊大陸
脂肪吸引…直腸検査…
Sinking Japan... supernatural phenomena...
…mind control... a floating continent
liposuction... rectal examinations...

ワレワレを
認めようとしない人類への
さまざまな報復
We enacted revenge on the humans
who ignored us
in a variety of ways.

中には喜んでいる奴もいたが
そこにはあまり触れないでおこう
There were also some guys who were happy about it,
but we won't touch on that too much.

そう、ワレワレは
宇宙からやってきた
「エイリアン」
Yes, we
came from space.
"Aliens".

ワレワレに
遠隔操作されたやつらは
エイリアンの象徴である
「アレ」が頭に生えてくる
Those controlled by us
will have "THAT",
an Alien symbol,
growing from their head.

「アレ」をあらわす言葉は
地球上には存在しない

Earth has no words to
explain what "THAT" is.

っていうか「アレ」を言葉にすることは
とてもとても恥ずかしいこと
Or rather, it's very, very embarrassing
to put "THAT" into words.

「アレ」のことを
女性の前で話すなんて
ぜったいにやってはいけない…
ぜったいにだ…
それほど「アレ」は
とてもとても恥ずかしいこと
You do not talk about
"THAT" in front of a woman.
You absolutely must not...
Absolutely...
That's how exceedingly
embarrassing "THAT" is.

ちなみに私には
「アレ」が8本も生えている
By the way, I have
8 of "THAT" growing on me.

そんなこんなで世界中を
侵略してやったわけだが
ここに来て非常に
やっかいな奴らがあらわれた
We had just about invaded
everywhere in the world, but then
some extremely troublesome guys
appeared here.

…その名も「にゃんこ軍団」
Their name is... "Cat Army".

ウワサによると奴らは
過去の世界で侵略の限りを尽くし、
それだけでは飽き足らず
未来の世界をも
侵略しにやってきたとか…
Rumor has it they did
their utmost to invade the world of the past,
and not satisfied with that,
they came to invade
the world of the future as well...

「にゃんこ軍団」に言いたい
ただ一つ言いたい

I just want to say
one thing to the "Cat Army".

「エイリアン」たちも
そんなに悪い奴らじゃないよ♪
日本を沈没させちゃったけどね(笑)
"Aliens" are not so bad either♪
We did sink Japan, though (laughs)

…と、いうわけで
「エイリアン」vs「にゃんこ」の
新章、はじまりはじまり〜〜
...and so,
a new chapter, "Alien" vs "Cat",
begins〜〜

こうして、ワレワレ「エイリアン」は
にゃんこ軍団によって、
完全に制圧された…
And so, we, the "Aliens",
were completely
subdued by the Cat Army...

にゃんこ軍団の
にゃんこ軍団による
この世の地獄とも思える生活
がこれから、始まるのだ!
A life that seems it will surely be Hell on Earth,
of the Cat Army,
by the Cat Army
begins from here onwards!

…と思っていたけど
けっきょく
ワレワレの生活が変わることは
まったく無かった
...was what I thought, but,
in the end,

 there was no change in

 our lives at all.

変わったことと言えば
なるべくTV出演をして欲しいと
にゃんこに頼まれたこと。
Speaking of things that have changed,
the Cats asked if we wanted to
appear on TV as much as possible.

それぐらいだ
That's about it.

おかげさまで最近のTV番組では
「おねえ」キャラに次いで
「エイリアン」キャラが
必要不可欠となっている
Thanks to them, "Alien" characters have
become a staple
second only to "older sister" characters
in recent TV programs.

お約束となっている、
「アレ」をいじられるネタは
もはや、鉄板ネタだ(笑)
It's no surprise that
playing with "THAT" has become
a joke that lands every time.

あ、そうそう
Ah, yes,

このまえ「にゃんこ軍団」と
「エイリアン」達とのコンパがあって
行ってきたんだけど
にゃんこ達はワレワレの世界に
とても興味を持っているらしい
The other day, the "Cats" and
"Aliens" held a konpa
that I went to, but the Cats
seem to be very interested
in our world.

とりあえず、
「宇宙にはネコカンはあるのか?」
と、小一時間ほど問い詰められた
In the meantime,
I was questioned closely for about an hour,
"Is there Cat Food in space?"

めんどくさかったので
最終的に「あるよ!」と答えたら
にゃんこ達は子供のように
目を輝かせていたのが
とっても印象的だった
It was getting very bothersome, so
I finally answered, "There is!"
The Cats' eyes gleaming
with childlike joy
really left an impression.

いつか宇宙に、にゃんこが?
ふふふ、まさかね...
Someday, could there be Cats in space?
Hahaha, there's no way, right...

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
無限の世界へ!
Cat Army,
to an endless world!

New Features[]

Aliens[]

Into the Future introduces a new enemy trait: Alien. The trait's main gimmick is that every Alien enemy has a default strength magnification of 700% (additive to other buffs). However, there are new crystal treasures to combat this; each superior reduces the magnification by 100% (subtractive).

Aliens introduced in Chapter 1:

Note: Void Fruit, Blood Fruit, Sky Fruit and Heaven's Fruit improve effects used against the specified enemy's type:

  • The Strong Against effect goes from 1.5x damage dealt to 1.8x damage dealt, and 0.5x damage received to 0.4x damage received.
  • The Massive Damage effect goes from 3x damage dealt to 4x damage dealt.
  • The Insane Damage effect goes from 5x damage dealt to 6x damage dealt.
  • The Resistant effect goes from 1/4 damage received to 1/5 damage received.
  • The Insanely Tough effect goes from 1/6 damage received to 1/7 damage received.
  • The Freeze, Slow, Weaken, Curse and Dodge Attack effects are increased in duration by 20%.
  • Finally, the Knockback effect's distance is increased by 30%.

Like the abilities they affect, they do not stack on multi-traited enemies. There still appears to be some uncertainty about what exactly each Treasure set's effect is alone.

If the Fruit Treasures are not at an equal amount when a cat with multiple targeted traits is used against an enemy with more than one of its targets (e.g., Baby Gao vs. Bears Be Back while Blood Fruit is at 100% and other Fruit Treasures are at 200%), the Fruit Treasure with the highest % will take priority. See Treasure for more information on each Treasure.

Trivia[]

  • The Time Machine 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.
  • In BCJP, Into the Future's map lacks the blue tint that it has in all other versions of the game.
  • In the Japanese version of the Into the Future opening, the narrator's list of ways the Aliens enacted revenge on humans (sinking Japan, creating a Floating Continent, etc.) consists of yojijukugo (four-character compounds). This is a throwback to the Japanese version of the Empire of Cats opening, in which the narrator tries using yojijukugo to stop the Cat Army's advance.
  • 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.
  • Ironically, none of the enemy bases from Into the Future are present in its main menu background.
  • On the far right of Into the Future's main menu background, you can see a freighter base which doesn't appear in any stage.
  • The monkey-shaped crop circle on the map is based on "The monkey", one of the many Nazca Lines of Peru.
  • Some of the crop circles on the map are shaped like the aliens from Space Invaders.
  • In the Taiwanese version, stages 3 and 21 are Taiwan and Hong Kong instead of China and the Philippines. The locations in between are all shifted forward by 1 (i.e., China is stage 4 instead of 3), changing the stage names, Treasure names and enemy bases, but not the backgrounds. Just like in the Taiwanese version of Empire of Cats, Cambodia and the Philippines do not appear as playable stages.
