Good Bye HKO
The last time I was able to log on to Hello Kitty On line was August 2017. All attempts to contact Sanrio Digital to get a status on Hello Kitty Online remains unanswered; therefore, I must conclude the rumors are true that Hello Kitty Online has ended and the servers taken down.
My own adventure started with the Beta on 2008 and the Founders Beta. While Sanrio aimed the game at young female demographic, I could not help noticing the positive reviews and interest from male gamers. The game had potential to be a hit. I believe Sanrio mismanaged the distribution and promotion of Hello Kitty Online and squandered an opportunity.
