February is the Month of Love, and we invite all Founders to celebrate the joy and love of Valentine’s Day in Hello Kitty Online! From February 12-17, 2009, HKO will host Happy Hearts, an exclusive Founders-only event in which players can get together once more with their friends, take on exciting new quests, and be first to experience some major enhancements to the game!
Here’s a rundown of what’s in store for the HKO Happy Hearts event:
Special Valentine’s-themed quests
Things aren’t all as they should be in Sanrio Land: Cupid has gone missing, and the romance of the season is also nowhere to be found. It’s up to our Founders to find him, and more importantly, help bring back the love! We’ll also be giving away exclusive items to the first few to finish the quest chain, so stay tuned for details!
Improved user interface
This is HKO like you’ve never seen before! Be among the first to experience the improved 1024×768 resolution, movable windows, and easily resizable chatbox! The local area map has also been improved, so keep an eye out for these and other enhancements!
Revamped farming system
We’ve taken into account your comments and suggestions in our revamp of the farming system. You can now water your plants and invite others to help you with the harvest; growth times have been adjusted; we have added a day cycle for farms; and players can now enjoy 8 new uniquely-designed farm types! After a lot of brainstorming and testing, this one of the most significant changes we’ve made to the game, so don’t miss out!
Keyword chat filter
Included in this events version of HKO is the recently announced chat filter. Offensive words will instantly be blocked from private and public chat to ensure a safer and more enjoyable gaming experience for our players.
Happy Hearts will begin on February 12, 2009 at exactly 22:00 EST, and will end on February 17, 2009 at 23:59 EST. We look forward to celebrating Valentine’s with all of you, and are eager to get your feedback on the many improvements we’ve made to the game. Stay tuned for more updates as the date draws near on the official HKO News blog and the official Event blog. See you soon!
