Hello Kitty Island Adventure Horse Avatar Type Added

Version 1.8 of Hello Kitty Island Adventure is now live, and it lets Apple Arcade players make their avatar a horse, go through a new event, take on more quests, and prepare the Mount Hothead Saunarator. While many of the new additions are immediately available, the Sunshine Celebration event doesn’t start until July 10, 2024.

With the horse option, it will show up as an avatar type both for newcomers who create a new character for a file or for existing Hello Kitty Island Adventure players. You need to head to a mirror to change your appearance to look like a different animal species. If one isn’t in a cabin you’ve decorated, you can visit Tuxedosam or My Melody’s shops and use the mirrors there to change.

In addition to the horse avatar, there are basically three other major additions in the Hello Kitty Island Adventure 1.8 update that involve completely new elements. You can trade lemonade for new and old rewards during Sunshine Celebration. That will be held in the Resort Plaza and involve My Melody. You can also head to Mount Hothead to restore the Saunarator. This will also lead to new sauna-related furniture and interior design options. Finally, a Music Player can be added to cabins. This also means being able to explore every area for songs for these.

Here’s the full trailer revealing the additions:

The 1.7 update arrived for Hello Kitty Island Adventure back in May 2024. In addition to new quests and an event, people could start adding face and back accessories to their avatars after downloading it.

Hello Kitty Island Adventure is available for Apple devices via Apple Arcade, and it will be on the Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC in 2025.
