Atlus Are Loving Life With Hello Kitty & Friends


Atlus aren’t done with the Nintendo DS yet. While Naruto Shippuden: Shinobi Rumble and Radiant Historia released earlier in the month, we have another DS game coming in the form of Loving Life with Hello Kitty & Friends, a follow-up to Happy Party with Hello Kitty & Friends (pictured to the right).


Thanks to an ESRB rating, we know that the game is suitable for all ages. “This is a collection of mini-games based on the Hello Kitty franchise,” they reveal. “Players can wash dishes, ring up groceries, and use in-game credits (i.e., Puros) to purchase colorful outfits and decorations for Kitty’s room.”


Rising Star are publishing Loving Life with Hello Kitty & Friends in Europe. Their website has a bit more to add, like the fact that you can help Hello Kitty’s friends do their homework. You can also work at shops:


“Play with Hello Kitty and her friends over five distinctive areas: Kitty’s room, the shops, the food court, shopping area and playing with Hello Kitty’s friends. In Hello Kitty’s room you can customise furniture, clothing and accessories. At the shops you can put on unique uniforms for each shop, play fun mini-games and help out at various shops; all run by Hello Kitty’s friends. In the food court you can work in various jobs to earn Puro (the in-game currency), and play more mini-games based on the shop you choose to work in. You can then use the Puro you’ve earned to purchase goods to decorate your room and visit Hello Kitty’s friends in the various shops.”


Loving Life with Hello Kitty & Friends doesn’t have an official release date yet, either in the U.S. or in Europe.
