A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

The goal of the game is for players to build up Sanrio Town and make it a nice, pleasant place for their animal friends. Additionally, players are asked to help out some of the local residents by completing a variety of fun mini-games. Hello Kitty is a well-established, kid-friendly franchise and exudes a feeling of peace, kindness, and happiness. Those attributes come across strongly in this colorful adventure game.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Hello Kitty herself is a positive role model. Her focus on helping others and making friends makes her the kind of animated childhood character that leads to a positive influence on young players.

Ease of Play

This game is very easy to play. Players need to follow minimal directions to achieve basic tasks and missions, such as aiding in requests from local townspeople. However, these tasks are very simple in nature, and designed to be accessible for nearly any player. Much of the game also revolves around customizing in-game characters and the town itself, which require simple point-and-click controls. It is impossible to fail, so even players who may not be able to solve the missions quickly will still eventually be able to complete them all.

Violence & Scariness
Language
Consumerism

The game features Hello Kitty and several other characters from the multi million-dollar Japanese toy company Sanrio. The virtual city they decorate and organize is called Sanrio Town.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Hello Kitty Seasons is a game featuring Hello Kitty, a cute Japanese cat character who has been popular for the entire 30+ years since her original creation. This well-established franchise comes to the Wii for the first time in this game, allowing players to dress up their Hello Kitty character and create a virtual Sanrio Town. Players keep up the city throughout the year as it changes with every season, and must complete challenges and mini-games to keep everything up-to-date. It is a highly colorful, fun-filled adventure for players whether or not they're familiar with Hello Kitty.

What's it about?

HELLO KITTY SEASONS lets players manage a virtual city called Sanrio Town year-round as it changes for each season. To earn upgrades to the city and unlock more options to customize the game, players complete mini-games and help townspeople with requests. In addition to Hello Kitty, characters like My Melody, Chococar, and Keroppi are here to join in the fun. While presented as an adventure game with missions and mini-games, it is up to the players to really decide how they want to play.

Is it any good?

Hello Kitty Seasons exudes a sense of bright, pleasant feelings. It is a simple adventure game for players who want some structure and basic mission-based gameplay, but also want to spend a lot of time just walking around and tweaking the town so it looks perfect. Players also get to unlock customizable items for their Hello Kitty avatar, allowing them to fully bring out their creative side.
