Ponos has posted the first trailer for Together! The Battle Cats, which was just confirmed for release on December 20 in Japan today. View it below.

Slated for this winter in Japan, Together! The Battle Cats has been given a final release date in the latest issue of CoroCoro. The magazine confirms that the game will launch digitally on the Switch eShop on December 20. It’ll cost 999 yen.

Together! The Battle Cats has not been announced for the west at this time. However, it’s worth noting that The Battle Cats POP! – a 3DS title – did head west a few years ago.


Nintendo’s website has updated with the first screenshots of Together! The Battle Cats. Have a look at the images below.

Together! The Battle Cats is slated for this winter in Japan. It’ll feature co-op support in the stages and mini-games.


A few years ago, The Battle Cats POP! released on the 3DS eShop. It was pretty darn successful having sold over 500,000 copies in the end.

Thanks to the latest issue of CoroCoro, we now know that PONOS is preparing a new Switch entry. The magazine reveals that Together! The Battle Cats is currently in development.

Together! The Battle Cats will launch in December. At the moment, that’s about all we know. More information should be provided in the weeks and months ahead.


About a month ago, The Battle Cats POP! was removed from the European 3DS eShop. Folks who had purchased the game previously could redownload it, but no one was able to make any new purchases.

There is good news for those who were interested in the game. As of today, The Battle Cats POP! has returned to the European eShop. You can purchase the digital download once more.

In Europe, The Battle Cats POP! is no longer available for purchase. It’s simply been removed – and it’s unclear why at the moment. However, those who bought the game previously should still be able to re-download.

We should also stress that this news only applies to Europe. A quick look in North America indicates that nothing has changed with The Battle Cats POP!


The Battle Cats POP! is out now on the North American and European eShops. Check out some footage from the game below.

Downloads for The Battle Cats POP! in Japan have exceeded 400,000 units, PONOS has announced. It originally launched in Japan last May.

Meanwhile, the game is making its debut in the west today. The game can now be purchased from the 3DS eShop.

With most games, we’re used to seeing eShop releases on Thursdays. But The Battle Cats POP! will apparently be one of the exceptions, as Nintendo has it listed for launch in North America on June 27.

Does the name “Battle Cats” ring a bell? This is a 3DS game was announced (and subsequently released) in Japan following a Nintendo Direct last year.

It now appears that the tower defense title will soon be available in English. A few hours ago, developer PONOS tweeted out the following:
