Outblush gives Hello Kitty Online Premium Edition a thumbs up!

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Who needs zombies, rocket launchers and explosions when you can have a fearsomely cute feline superstar, willing to take you into an enrapturing world brimmed with fun, cuteness and nonviolence? Outblush, a popular blog for girls who love shopping, has posted a very positive review of Hello Kitty Online Premium Edition! The HKO team was ecstatic to receive this review!

 

Quoted from Outblush:

“A REAL game gal’s professional opinion? We asked Outblush Operative Clare F., who reviewed the game for us and says….

As a lover of all things video-game related, I would be lying if I said my first reaction when Outblush handed me a game to review wasn’t insane, deluded joy. I would also be lying if I said that immense joy wasn’t replaced with homicidal tendencies when I was informed the game was in fact Hello Kitty Online.

As a person who really enjoys a good video game, I couldn’t imagine what I could possibly like about something so saccharine, goody goody and, well…pink. When I tossed the disc into my laptop, the first thing that struck me was the tutorial. While the game loads, I got to spend my time learning how to get around this little world. It was so through I was afraid that I should’ve taken some notes.”

Head over to Outblush to read their full review of Hello Kitty Online Premium Edition!

Outblush is a popular blog for shopaholic ladies. The site features trendy clothes, beauty products, home furnishings and more to make shopping easier for its visitors.

Thank you for your inspiring review, Outblush! To those who are interested in Hello Kitty Online Premium Edition, you may learn more about it here.

HKO Spooky Makeover Winners!

Friday, November 5th, 2010

Good day! The HKO event “Hello Kitty Online’s Spooky Makeover” has ended, and it was a huge success! We received a lot of awesome blog entries from players containing screenshots of their fabulous (and spooky!) costumes in-game. We’re overjoyed that many people joined the makeover. It was fun reading all your blogs and we were amazed at how creative our beloved players could get with their costume ideas! Thank you for participating, and belated Happy Halloween!

Today, we’re thrilled to announce the winners of Hello Kitty Online’s Spooky Makeover! Here they are:

 

Runner-Up Winners (Earns 3.000 Sanrio Loyalty Points):

 

The GM’s Nightmare!

Just because they’re Game Masters does not mean they’re immune to being spooked! The GM’s Nightmare is a satirical depiction of players who ceaselessly badger our HKO GMs. Take a look at how Ly pestered GM Watermelon in the screenshot above. Let’s just hope she didn’t make him tear his hair out! This is proof that you don’t need expensive items to make a creative ensemble! Read more about this entry here

 

Spooky Tree Girl

What would you do if a suspicious-looking tree suddenly spoke and shuffled towards your direction? The Spooky Tree Girl costume was cleverly designed by Anya so that she could disguise herself as a fiendish treant and strike terror on any hapless unsuspecting passerby! Read more about this entry here…

 

Alice in Hello Kitty Land!

Alice is a rather quaintly logical girl, transported into Wonderland after following a white rabbit in a fancy waistcoat into a rabbit hole. Loree did a great job portraying Alice by donning a frilly dress, an elegant bow, black pumps and a magical key. It’s a little spooky in a cute way. There are even screenshots of her shrinking to the size of a sugar cube and growing as tall as a building! Read more about this entry here…

Candy House Witch

Somewhere in Hello Kitty World, there’s a house built entirely of candy that appears mysteriously once a year on All Hallows’ Eve! Rumor has it that many children have already entered the candy house and were never seen again. There’s an elderly lady that resides in there, enticing little children with sweets. Don’t be fooled by her grandmotherly visage and the frail old lady act; she is actually a nefarious Candy House Witch! Or maybe she’s pretending to be one, who knows? Costume design by xSunshine! Read more about this entry here…

The Nutty Nutcracker

Nutcrackers are decorative wooden carvings that usually portray soldiers, knights and kings. Azog managed to look like a nutcracker soldier by putting on Royal Army Hat and a Royal Army Coat. Nutcrackers are associated with Christmas, but if you think about it, they’re actually really, really creepy. Who knows what kind of wooden fiends they turn into in the dark? Read more about this entry here…

 

And finally, the Grand Prize Winner:

 

 

Grand Prize Winner (Earns 5.000 Sanrio Loyalty Points):

The Mad Hatter

Another fictional character of Lewis Caroll, the Mad Hatter is forever frozen in time at 6:00 PM to partake in a tea party with the March Hare, asking unanswerable riddles and reciting nonsensical poetries! Sora did an amazing job, wearing a black top hat and a foppish outfit. Read more about this entry here…

Congratulations, everyone!

 

We have already added the corresponding Sanrio Loyalty Points to each event participant, so enjoy your SLP! If anyone has questions or problems regarding their SLP for this particular event, you can reach us at marketing@hellokitty.com.

 

As an a little extra, here are some of the Spooky Makeover photoshoots of your beloved GMs and SanrioTown Moderator!

GM Pomelo as a Demon-Possessed Child

GM Galatea as the Pumpkin Princess

GM Lychee as the Vampire Duchess

SanrioTown Moderator Metaphysical Fried Rice as the Demon Prince

NEWS FLASH: Hello Kitty’s Birthday Bash at Snowy Wonderland!

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

NEWS FLASH!

Snowy Wonderland, London, November 3, 2010—The feline superstar, Kitty White, celebrated her 36th birthday on November 1, yet many of her guests decided to overstay and they don’t seem to be planning to leave the venue anytime soon! Fortunately, in her constant battle against boredom among the partygoers in her birthday bash, Kitty has so many volunteers to help her cheer up the grumpy, cantankerous monsters! Those nifty sparklers and fireworks also helped brighten up the snowland fete a big deal!

Here are some photos of the crazy partygoers and the volunteers!

 

 

 

Of course, that means the party’s still on! They might have run out of cakes, but at least, there are still some of those slick and fashionable party hats to be had! The lovely celebrant, Hello Kitty, has thanked her fans for the support and for bringing her birthday gifts, which she will be donating to charity such as Save the Children an aid organization providing relief for the homeless who were affected by Typhoon Negi in the Philippines— and Asian Youth Orchestra.

Come and join the merrymaking! Learn more at the event guide page, read the release notes, or talk to the Party Clown in Sanrio Harbour to begin the adventure!

 

Have fun!

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

To our dear SanrioTown users,

We would like to inform you that SanrioTown’s email system will be upgraded and redesigned in the near future so that we may be able to serve you better. Below are some of the changes that will take effect with the new system:

1. The mailbox will be upgraded to 1GB and all your emails will be kept and well maintained with the system upgrade.
2. After the system is upgraded, you can still access the Calendar, but your calendar data would NOT be kept. We suggest that you save your Calendar data now as backup;
3. The File Sharing and File Cabinet services will be STOPPED on December 6, 2010. You would also need to save your data in advance;
4. You will no longer receive Sanrio Loyalty Points when you send emails owing to the new system restriction, but you are still able to earn SLP by using other SanrioTown services;

We hope to give you a more efficient and easy-to-use email service after this update. Thank you for your support and for using SanrioTown services!

Stay tuned for the latest updates about the new email system.

Sincerely,

The SanrioTown Team
