Sanrio, the company behind Hello Kitty and many more adorable characters, first started out in Japan 40 years ago during the “kawaii” craze. They created their first merchandise of Hello Kitty in the 70’s and introduced her internationally shortly after. She has since become a huge media and pop culture icon. Who doesn’t love an adorable anthropomorphic cat that brings joy and friendship to everyone?
Hello Kitty and some of her friends were added into Animal Crossing: New Leaf as part of the Welcome Amiibo update but Westerners had to purchase the cards needed online (now out of print). Thankfully, the official Twitter page of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has just announced the Sanrio Characters Collection! The event starts July 11th, 2019 at 2:00 a.m. and will be separated into 3 parts. See below for what we can look forward to in just a couple of days.
- Collection #1 will celebrate Hello Kitty and Cinnamoroll, with fortune cookies, wallpapers, backpacks, and more!
- The items in #2 and #3 will feature the characters in this image. Maybe you recognize them, campers? #2 will commence later in July, and #3 will start at the beginning of August.
- The fortune cookies and the Sanrio Characters Crafting Collection will come packed with cute rewards!
- Gyroidite Scavenger Hunt: Sanrio Characters Collection, you can gather Hello Kitty gyroidite to craft a bevy of delightful items, including 10 tees based on Sanrio Characters and even a Hello Kitty balloon!
- To mark the occasion, everyone will receive a Hello Kitty bow as a gift.
We want to know if our Potato family is as excited as we are for this limited-time event! We’ll definitely be playing Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp right away while we wait for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
