Hello kitty online and real geography

Friday, December 19th, 2008

So you know, I thought hello kitty online was just going to squeeze all the cool buildings from one place into a map haphazardly. And I had never been to london or paris so I had no idea that..


That struck me only when they did New York, because I visited there before. It looks the same from the area map! Seriously! I’m pretty amazed, so here are the real london and paris maps for comparision, for all those people like me who never been to these awesome places XD

Now I totally want them to make a mini Singapore T_T

P.S. If you can match all the unnamed places on the HKO maps with their real names please do so!!!!

P.P.S. TY Starrfire for taking the screenshots for me!!!
