HKO Closed Beta Announcement

Monday, March 24th, 2008

We could not thank you people enough for the overwhelming support you’ve given HKO. Again, THANK YOU.

In case you didn’t know, we have already released the list of people who were accepted to become Closed Beta Testers

We appreciate all the concerns you’ve shared with us regarding the Closed Beta and as such, the HKO official blog as released this announcement:

1. DO NOT give your personal information to any email other than “onlinegame{at}”. We will not use any other email to send the closed beta tester message for those chosen. Furthermore, do not reply to or accept any other email as valid unless announced here in the official HKO blog (e.g. mmorpg{at} for the Dream Studio submissions).

2. For our chosen closed beta testers, please be assured that we will keep your information confidential, and will not share it with any other party. The information will be used for the sole purpose of sending you the Hello Kitty Online package.

3. Your emails are safe from spambots. Even though it is easy for people guess or figure out who those are, spambots will not be able to detect them, so rest assured that you will not be receiving spam as a result of posting your partially-masked email addresses here.

If you think you are on the list but have not received an email, you may email us at onlinegame{at} to confirm. Feel free to email us if you have any more concerns. Thank you again!

First off, we are ESCTATIC to report that we have received a staggering amount of video applications for closed beta testers. We here at Sanriotown, give you our deepest, sincerest thanks.

For our loyal and active Sanriotown users, we are making extra room for tester positions based on the user’s ability to communicate with other users via blog posts, comments, forum posts as well our subscribers who have taken the effort to create such incredible and engaging vides. For existing applications and video entries, don’t worry, it will not be affected.

Right now, we’re sifting through the videos and we must say, these videos are interesting to say the least. Thank you!
