Kyoutou Project (京刀のナユタ Kyōtō no Nayuta) was a Japanese-exclusive tower defense game developed by PONOS. It played very similarly to The Battle Cats and even included some of its characters for a limited time, but was more story-based and had a number of exclusive features to distinguish itself, including voice acting and cutscenes.
Kyoutou Project was shut down on June 30th, 2020 (11:00). To commemorate the game, its protagonist Kyosaka Nanaho was added to version 9.5 of The Battle Cats and Nyanko Daisensou as a Legend Rare Cat.
- A thousand years ago, the world was almost destroyed by a vast horde of demons called "Nayutaki Yakou" (The Night Parade of 100,000,000 Demons).
- Abe no Seimei, the Onmyoji of his time, sealed them away, but now they have begun to revive in the present age.
- In order to stop the return of "Nayutaki Yakou", the "Shintotsukai" (Divine Sword Masters) who oppose the demons begin to gather in Kyoto from all over Japan.
- Katsumi Endo, a young man who yearns to be a part of the Shinsengumi, joins the young sword masters who share his ambition.
- Together they form the Shinseidan (The Sincere Alliance), a group of swordsmen who are determined to defeat the demons.
- This story is a record of the Shinseidan's battles.
- A story that will not be left in history, but will protect history.
Kyoutou Project had a collab with Nyanko Daisensou, adding Sakura Sonic as a Shintou unit; Cat, Tank Cat, Gross Cat, Bahamut Cat, Teacher Bun Bun as both allies and enemies; and Doge, Pigge and Those Guys as opponents only

The game also had a collab with the Kyoto International Manga Museum, which added Miyu Karasuma - a mascot formed by the connection between the Manga Museum and Get on! Kyoto City Subway - as a playable character.
Battle Cats Wiki has a gallery for Kyoutou Project.
- The game's name makes a pun in Japanese: The real-world city of Kyōto is spelled 京都, while the word Kyoutou in the game's name is spelled 京刀; the second kanji means "sword", one of Kyoutou Project's main recurring motifs. Kyou also happened to be the name of one of the main characters - specifically the spirit dwelling within Kyosaka Nanaho's sword Honoka - so the title could literally mean Project of Kyou's Sword.
