Hello Kitty and her Sanrio friends are heading to Nintendo systems this fall with three new games, including the character's first-ever foray onto the Wii U platform.
The new games will be published by Bergsala Lightweight with support from Rising Star Games.
The games are set to launch later this year in markets that use the PAL format across the Middle East, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe and Asia.
“Hello Kitty recently celebrated 40 years of inspiring happiness, friendship and sharing across the world, so there’s never been a better time to bring three new Hello Kitty experiences to Nintendo systems,” says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. “Never before have Sanrio fans had so much choice from their gaming, and Hello Kitty’s Wii U debut is sure to bring smiles to thousands of faces across Europe.”
The new games include:
