Hi everyone, it’s me again, Abby, writing on behalf of the Hello Kitty Online development team for our Developer Diary. I have a few updates and news to share with you.

Monster Stats/Difficulty

We’re working carefully on adjusting game difficulty in Hello Kitty Online, and I’d like to explain some changes we have already made to balance monster difficulty and rewards. First, we have improved the stat bonuses on quest reward items in Sanrio Harbour. Secondly, merchant NPCs in all major cities except Sanrio Harbour now offer more powerful items for sale. These improved quest rewards and merchant items should make it easier to face monsters in the wilderness of Sanrio Land.

Also, we’ve started working on some substantial adjustments to the stats themselves that will make things easier for everyone. It’ll take some time, but we’ll keep you updated on our progress!

Hello Kitty’s 35th Birthday

We’d also like to take this time to thank you all for celebrating Hello Kitty’s 35th Birthday with us. We were thrilled to receive your feedback, and we’re glad that you all enjoyed the event! We can’t wait to see you in our next celebration, which is…

The HKO In-game Christmas Event

You can feel it in the air — the holidays are just around the corner! We’re working on another special event for our players across all regions. We know you’re expecting it, and we don’t intend to let you down! Get your holiday spirit ready for:

  • Two special new quest chains featuring our very own Santa and a quirky new character who’s about to cause some big trouble
  • The Emote Game will be back
  • More cute holiday-themed items for you to collect

This is definitely the biggest party to hit Hello Kitty Online to date!  Hundreds of players around the world flocked to London to celebrate Hello Kitty’s 35th birthday in Hello Kitty Online.  It was definitely one for the books!

The party crowd

The festivities started with several games lead by the Game Masters. Players then participated in a massive treasure hunt that took them to specific points in London. Everyone joined in and it was an awesome spectacle to see:

Treasure Hunt

Soon the clues brought them to a special treat: A giant Piñata!

The players rushed in to break it, and as soon as it cracked, they all received very special treats!  Hello Kitty was also there to join the fun!
