The streets of Hello Kitty Online are adorned with festive decorations, the holiday spirit is in the air, and everyone is busy preparing for the big day. From December 18 to December 28, 2009, players of Hello Kitty Online from all over the world can get together with their friends to enjoy a very special in-game event celebrating the holiday season!
Hello Kitty's Holiday Capers & Celebrations!
Are you ready? It’s time for Hello Kitty’s Holiday Capers & Celebrations!
Special holiday quests – which side will you choose?
Who better to spread the holiday cheer than Santa himself? With the big celebration fast approaching, Santa can use all the help he can get, so visit him at Sanrio Harbour and lend him a hand. Even though the warm fuzzy feeling of assisting Santa is reward in itself, he will also give you something for helping him!
While Santa and his helpers are busy, someone is stirring up trouble! He goes by the name of Mr. Jinch, and he’s looking for people willing to help him pull off his pranks. If you’re feeling a little mischievous, find Mr. Jinch in Sanrio Harbour to see if you have what it takes to be a trickster just like him!
New quests for both sides will be released on a daily basis, and you must choose to help either Santa or Mr. Jinch, but not both. Once you have chosen your side there’s no turning back, so choose wisely!

So what are you waiting for?!
I've been out of action for a little while but now I am back again! Yay (cheers and celebration abound), summer is here and I have more time to play again! Anyway for my post today I found something interesting, what happens when you merge Starwars with Hello Kitty?
Why of course, Hello Wars! (or in the below case, Hello Fett or Boba Kitty)
That would be a cool avatar costume now....along side the historical darth vader outfit below.
This is great news that was announced just now as it also means open beta is coming very soon!
My favorite posting on this was on Joystiq. I wonder if the same GM's in the closed beta will be there or if that means it's a different crew alltogether?
Do you like MMOs, but hate all the wizardy fantasy half-orc junk? Do you wish for something a bit more ... astoundingly, face-meltingly cute in which to meet virtual friends? Sanrio Digital and Aeria Games have just announced that they're launching Hello Kitty Online in North America. Aeria will operate the game, and Sanrio will run the SanrioTown online portal.
The game, which was so great it caused WoW Insider to temporarily change its focus, is a free-to-play MMO that emphasizes crafting and resource gathering over combat -- but does include combat! Players don't directly control Sanrio characters, but rather make human avatars that can interact with Hello Kitty, Badtz-Maru, Keroppi and other Sanrio favorites.
well..at least according too mmosite.com what's interesting is that mmosite as a community ranked HKO higher than Star Trek, Stargate or Dragonica which is in contrast to mmorpg.com I guess the communities are quite different?
Separately, the Valentine Beta just closed, I'll be missing it but we had fun. We crafted shirts and bags for an orphanage in RL!
So for all you gamers who have forgotten about your precious other half, Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Remember to be nice and appreciate your loved ones, real or virtual.
and separately, if you didn't already know as is appropriate for the little kitten of live, it will open up again for Valentine! I'll be there, look us up guild: sailoria
