Players can invite a friend into the game to play together, or play solo, as they traverse through a gorgeous world teeming with adorable creatures, delicious food, and many mysteries to unravel. They will discover unique stories, participate in fun mini-games, solve challenging puzzles, and uncover rare treasures to create the ultimate island paradise.
“We set out to create a game that Hello Kitty and Friends fans would love — an open world adventure combined with the cozy, customizable life simulation gameplay that delivers a deep and captivating experience, all wrapped in the incomparable charm of Sanrio’s beloved cast,” said Julian Farrior, founder of game developer Sunblink. “It’s an ongoing living world that will continue to honor and celebrate what fans love most about Hello Kitty.”
As players discover more of the island, they will have the opportunity to exchange gifts, chat, unlock character-specific quests and storylines with their beloved friends, and earn the ability to take a character around the world with them. Each character will also provide unique bonuses to help in the player’s exploration: Splash around with Keroppi, soar high with Cinnamoroll, or get extra cooking help from Hello Kitty. While rebuilding to bring the island back to life, players can attract even more Sanrio characters by repairing, customizing, and decorating visitor cabins all across the island.
“Combining our core values of friendship, kindness, and inclusivity, and Apple Arcade’s inclusive and family-friendly offering, we aim to unite a community around the world through friendship, play, and positive connections with the launch of Hello Kitty Island Adventure,” said Craig Takiguchi, chief operating officer of Sanrio, Inc.
