Hello Kitty Online New Features: Item Mall and Game Profile Page

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

hellokittyonline-thumb.jpgThe upcoming Founders’ Christmas Reunion is not just a chance to celebrate the season with friends, but also a great opportunity for you to test out two key new features in Hello Kitty Online: the Game Profile Page and the Item Mall. Please note that these features will only be open once the Founders’ Christmas Reunion is launched.

Sample Game Profile Page

Game Profile Page
Players of the Founders’ Christmas Reunion will be the first to try out the test version of the Game Profile Page. The Game Profile Page is a web page that collects your Hello Kitty Online character’s status information. Previews of the character’s farm, house, videos pet, friends list, and latest blog posts will be shown in this page. Log-in to Sanriotown, and click on the Online Games tab. Please note that this page is only a test version, and as such, does not yet accurately reflect in-game status.

Navigating to the Item Mall

Item Mall
The Item Mall will also be made available for the first time in the Founders Christmas Reunion. Players will be able to access it by clicking on the Item Mall button on the right side of their user interface. All our Founders will be receiving 300 Loyalty Points which they can use to purchase items as they test out the system.

Patching your game client
You will need to update your game to the latest version before you can play in the Founders’ Christmas Reunion. You can now start patching your game client simply by using the game’s auto-updater, or by downloading the manual patch update from the Hello Kitty Online Download Center.

Did you uninstall the game?
If you already uninstalled Hello Kitty Online, you can download the game installer from the Hello Kitty Online Download Center. NOTE: a fresh install will require longer patching time. It is highly recommended that you update your game client ahead of time so that you can start playing as soon as the server opens!

We look forward to seeing you at the Founders’ Reunion, and to hearing your feedback regarding your experiences. See you in Sanrio Land!
