The newest video game featuring the super-cute and irresistible pop-icon, Hello Kitty Party lets players dance, shop, cook, iron and much more in 25 themed games designed for fans.
"Hello Kitty has been a worldwide phenomenon for the past 35 years and we relished the opportunity to add the global icon to our portfolio," said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for Majesco. "Hello Kitty Party is the perfect title to bring to market during the holiday gift-giving season and we believe fans of all ages will enjoy the unique experience."

In Hello Kitty Party, players help Hello Kitty and SANRIO friends – including Keroppi, Badtz-Maru, My Melody and others – plan and throw a super fun party. Players can send out personalized party invitations; design and iron the perfect dress; shop for party fare; play puzzles and match games; and dress Hello Kitty in a variety of outfits and accessories. In addition, players can have fun in the kitchen-washing, slicing, frying and cooking party food before the guests arrive. When the party is in full swing, players can also show off their moves in the Dance Contest!
