GamePro has selected their favorite charitable massively multiplayer online games, and Helo Kitty Online tops the list! HKO is honored by this recognition of our efforts to promote and assist important causes. Here’s an extract from the article:

It’s hard to say when the idea that a massively multiplayer online game could generate money for charity clicked, but there’s no denying that something about MMOs makes giving easy. Whether it’s an in-game pet with no gameplay value, a special item with a specific in-game bonus, or a fully developed quest or environment, players get to engage with the act of charity in a way that only a video game can provide.

The way the game [Hello Kitty Online] does it is especially charming. Rather than only asking players to buy a pet or a pink ribbon t-shirt, Hello Kitty Online invites players to act — completely for free — on the environment around them, knowing that their efforts contribute to the final total developer Sanrio Digital donates to a specific charity.

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 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!
