There are 3 new features:

  • Save Data: The Battle Cats POP! supports multiple save files rather than one to allow multiple family members or friends play on the same downloaded software without having to worry about making any mistakes with others' progress.
  • Save 「セーブ」: Unlike its mobile counterparts, The Battle Cats POP! includes a manual save functionality which can be used anytime in the main menu.
  • VS Mode: Two players can go head to head in a heated battle against each other. Each player chooses up to 10 Cat Units to try and destroy the others base. There is one extra addition to VS Mode known as "Get Help Bonus Spin", this feature allows the player to gamble for a special bonus to use against the opposing player, these bonuses range from:

  • Recovery: Player's Cat Units' recharge time decreased.
  • Cat Cannon: Acts like the regular Cat Cannon attack.
  • Cost Down: Lowers the cost of the player's Cat Units.
  • Max Money: Maxes player's wallet.
  • Efficiency Up: Increases the player's efficiency level.
  • Fast Recovery: Player's Cat Units' recharge time decreased even further.
  • Healing: Heals the player's Cat Units' health.
  • Baby Boom: Acts like the regular Baby Boom Attack.
  • Attack Up: Increases the player's Cat Units' attack.
  • Defense Up: Increases the player's Cat Units' health.
  • Move Speed Up: Increases the player's Cat Units' speed.

  • Slow: Slows the opposing player's Cat Units.
  • Knockback: Activates a boss shockwave knocking opposing player's Cat Units back.
  • Freeze: Freezes the opposing player's Cat Units.

  • Differences from the Mobile Version

    • The names of several of cats have been changed and some of the descriptions may be different (most likely due to space limitations on the 3DS hardware). As the game progresses, more Uber sets to draw from become available. Nekoluga can be obtained from any set, making him the easiest to obtain.
    • Dark Emperor Santa and Chief Peng appear as regular enemies and thus are listed in the Enemt Guide.
      For the name changes, see this page.
    • The Normal Cat Capsule does not appear like the Rare Cat Capsule does. Instead, you can get True Forms for Normal Cats by simply leveling them up to 20.
    • The Normal Cats are the only units to have True Forms.
    • Special Cats are bought with XP instead of Cat Foodz
    • Like in the mobile versions, the standard level cap prior to completing Chapter 2 is 10. Unlike the other versions however, by attempting to use duplicates of a cat that has already reached that point, you can permanently unlock the levels succeeding that amount for the chosen unit early.
    • The gacha cats' + levels have been significantly dropped to a lower level cap.
    • "+" levels cannot be given to units until they have reached base level 20; attempting to do so before then will result in the duplicate unit being converted into 1 natural level as though they had been upgraded normally.
    • The Rare Cat Capsule also includes the Monthly and Cyclone Cats, as well as Cabaret Cat, Moneko, Bean Cats and Flower Cat, all of which can be obtained in any Uber set in their respective rarity level. (With the exceptions of Cabaret, Moneko, Bean Cats and Flower Cat which are now Super Rare instead of Special).
    • The enemy bases of the Moon and Kaiou stages have different designs. The Moon's in particular is a slightly modified version of the one from Kumanchu Royale.
    • Ururun Wolf appears as the final boss of Chapter 3, and may be obtained upon completion of the final stage. The player will receive Bahamut Cat as a reward for completing the game.
      • Note: Since Bahamut Cat is a 100% chance reward for the first time reward, Treasure Radars cannot be used to obtain Ururun Wolf, leaving you to be forced to deal with the 5% drop chance.
    • Legend Stages are unavailable in The Battle Cats POP!. The same goes for all features added in The Battle Cats Version 4.0 and beyond, such as Into the Future, Cats of the Cosmos, Zombie Outbreaks, Catclaw Dojo, Ototo Corps and more.
    • Obtaining a duplicate Treasure grants the player a set amount of Cat Food.
      • Inferior grants 1 Cat Food.
      • Normal grants 2 Cat Food.
      • Superior grants 3 Cat Food.

    • Wheel Cat's description says that he is "powerful vs Aliens", yet no Alien enemies are present.
    • Despite Cabaret Cat not being released outside of the Japanese Version, it appears in The Battle Cats POP! with full English translations.
