Hello everyone! We would once again like to share with you what the HKO team has been working on. First off, we’d like to talk about a few improvements and fixes that were added to the game recently but not properly documented.
Changes already live in HKO
- ● Daily, weekly and monthly repeatable quests are now available! Talk to Material Merchant NPCs in Florapolis, London and Paris to get started!
- ● The Group System has been introduced, with a preview of Group quests during Hello Kitty’s Valentine’s Day Surprise
Our goal in the next months is to expand end game potential, player communication, and guild functionality. These are ongoing projects, so expect to hear more! Here are some of the additions we will be making to the game in the coming months.
Head items will get fixed
Our next update will address a problem with certain head items, which change your character’s hairstyle back to default when worn. After the patch, items worn on the head will no longer cause this problem. You can finally show off your hairstyle AND head gear at the same time, making it easier for players to customize their characters.
Chat channel enhancements
We are working on letting players switch chat channels by typing them right into the chat box before the message they want to send. For example, to send a message to the map channel you will type /m .
In order to improve communication for players, especially new players, we will add a new chat channel dedicated to in-game help. More details on that later this month!
SanrioTown Game Center integration
The SanrioTown Game Center is a section on SanrioTown.com in which members can play dozens of minigames and earn Loyalty Points. Check out the link if you haven’t already seen the SanrioTown Game Center! These minigames will be integrated into Hello Kitty Online, so players will be able to play them inside HKO. This will make it easier to earn Loyalty Points for use in the Item Mall. Expect this feature to be available later in March, along with a special event to celebrate the launch.
There are several major content updates lined up for the next months. For those who simply cannot wait, here is a quick rundown of things you can look forward to:
- ● Earth Day event and other global events
- ● Fully revamped guild system with extended functionality
- ● New adventure maps and new quests!
- ● New city map Tokyo
- ● A mini-game hub
- ● New features to stimulate friendly competition among players!
We will keep you posted on further developments, so stay tuned!
