This subpage is dedicated to find differences specifically with the Nintendo Switch version and comparing content with the mobile and Nintendo 3DS port.

Mobile[]

The Battle Cats Unite! on release was based on an older version of The Battle Cats, presumably Version 6.10, with some additional content from future builds of the mobile version. However, there are many key features that may have been removed, changed, or missing.
