Hello Kitty Island Adventure brings the themes of friendship and positivity in version 1.3

After a spooky Halloween update, things are getting a little more relaxed in Hello Kitty Island Adventure’s latest patch. Sunblink and Sanrio have just released version 1.3 of their narrative-driven life simulation game. This one focuses on friendship and positivity as the Give & Gather holiday approaches.

Hello Kitty Island Adventure is hosting the Give & Gather Celebration until December 26th and Cinnamoroll has found himself in a bit of a predicament as there’s very little time to deliver so many presents. Players must help him send special gifts to each Sanrio friend and receive presents from them as well. All of them can eventually be opened in the grand finale of the festival.

The update also sees the introduction of a brand new character, My Sweet Piano, who is one of My Melody’s oldest friends. My Melody wants everything to be perfect for My Sweet Piano’s debut. The former also has her own family visiting as Mama, Papa, Grandma, and Grandpa are here for the holidays, so the island is going to be pretty packed.
