Hello Kitty Online is back in the Philippines! UPDATE

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Great news for our Filipino friends! Sanrio Digital and Level Up! Inc. are pleased to announce that Hello Kitty Online is opening its doors to players from the Philippines starting tomorrow, December 9, 2010!

Unfortunately, characters from the Philippines could not be transferred to the international servers, which mean you will have to create and level a new character. To compensate for this inconvenience, existing players from the Philippines server will receive a refund of all their Sanrio Cash Points (including points already spent) plus 40,000 Sanrio Loyalty Points.

Simply download and install the new HKO game client from this link and enter the game using your usual SanrioTown account details, then join the International Server. Your cash and loyalty points will be automatically loaded into your account. Then create your character and spend your points!

If you have any concerns, please email us at help@hellokittyonline.com This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or contact one of our Game Masters (GMs) inside the game.

We’d like to welcome all Filipino players to the International Server! We look forward to seeing you back in the game!

UPDATE: Due to heavy demands on our patch servers, we will have to delay the launch of Hello Kitty Online to the Philippines to tomorrow, December 9, 2010. We are sorry for this delay and thank you all for your patience!

Tomorrow will be an exciting day for all of us and we look forward to seeing you all at the International Server!
