Battle Cats Wiki

The Main Menu is the first screen that the player will see when booting up The Battle Cats.

The language menu

When the game starts, the player is greeted with a language option and is able to choose their preferred language to play in. The language options range from: English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. After choosing one of the options, the player is then greeted with a message:

"※After changing display Language, additional required data will be downloaded.
If you are not connected to a stable Wi-fi environment,
you may incur additional charges from your network data plan.
※ This process will not delete your Save Data."

Once agreeing to the language option, the game will download the games files. Once finished a message will appear:

"The Battle Cats" is completely free to play. However, please be aware that there is paid content.

The intro will play with the option to skip or not. After the intro has ended or been skipped, the player must agree to the Application License Agreement, Privacy Policy and input their date of birth.
