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.
