Original theme singer and voice of Misato return for PVs
Sorry, Tim... we've got another Evangelion timeline for you.
Strangely adorable tower defense game The Battle Cats (released in Japan as Nyanko Daisensou) is getting in the robot for a crossover with Neon Genesis Evangelion, and they aren't doing anything by halves. Limited-time maps and missions will let you battle Angels against the backdrop of Tokyo-3, with the help of Eva-fied kitties and the occasional actual Eva.
To break the news, Battle Cats is launching two new PVs. Both feature "Cruel Angel's Thesis" singer Yoko Takahashi returning to perform the theme with new lyrics (all of which are "nya"). Kotono Mitsuishi (the voice of Misato) is also back to narrate the "Nyankogelion" previews.
While The Battle Cats is available in territories outside Japan, there's no indication the collaboration will run simultaneously in other regions.
The Battle Cats x Evangelion kicks off tomorrow and runs until August 1. The PVs will also begin airing in Japan tomorrow.
