Hello everyone!

(Updated Patch Schedule) On Thursday, July 29, 2010, at 00:00 EST (12:00 GMT+8), HKO will go off-line for about 4 hours for an update that will allow you to access multiple regions using one game client!

Your game client will automatically update itself when you run it, so you don’t have to do anything. If you haven’t installed the game yet, please head over to our download page and get our new 140MB unified playable installer.

Because the new game client lets you access servers that were previously separated, we had to make some adjustments. The most important thing to remember is that HKO now has Servers based on your preferred region, and on each Server there are Worlds. Your character is restricted to a single server, but can access all the worlds on that server. Play wherever suits you best!

Once you have logged into the game with your SanrioTown email and password, you will see a new server selection screen: choose a Server based on your location and then select a World based on your language (if applicable).

HKO now offers two servers:

International: for all players from all parts of the world (previously was called “Global”). This server offers three different Worlds for players depending on language: English, French, or German. More language options may be added in the future.

US & Canada: for players from USA & Canada (previously was called “North America”). This server has one World for English language players.

NOTE: characters are non-transferable between servers; your character exists only on the server where you created him/her. If you log in to the wrong server you will see the character creation screen instead of your character information. Simply exit and log in to the other server.

If you have any comments or questions, please email us at onlinegame@hellokitty.com. See you in the game!
