What You Need to Know:
- When we usually hear of Hello Kitty we often think of merchandise in the form of clothing, accessories and maybe even food. It's not too often that we come across a Hello Kitty game because the last one we remember came out a very long time ago.
- It seems now Sanrio is gearing to bring the popular franchise back into the gaming world as they've announced that Hello Kitty ♥ PAC-MAN, a new collaboration featuring PAC-MAN, the world’s first video game hero, are joining forces to create a fun title for fans.
- Sanrio and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment will debut its limited-edition Hello Kitty ♥ PAC-MAN merchandise collection at Comic-Con International: San Diego. Starting on July 20th, the collection will be available at the BAIT booth, and will include t-shirts, caps, socks, tote bags, pins, and a Hello Kitty ♥ PAC-MAN collectible figure set. The design blends the classic arcade pixelated PAC-MAN look with the supercute iconography of Hello Kitty. BAIT will debut an additional version of the collectible figure set at Comic-Con International: New York in October 2017. Additional products will be available at specialty retailers this fall.
- The PAC-MAN mobile game, which is free to download and play, will feature Hello Kitty, along with special in-game integrations and themed levels, customized icons, and ghosts. The Hello Kitty content will be included as part of a free, limited-time update to PAC-MAN on Google Play and the Apple App Store, available to download now through August 19.

PAC-MAN - Hello Kitty Trailer
Great to see Hello Kitty make her way back into the gaming spotlight. It certainly has been quite some time since we've seen her in a video game, that's like maybe Super Nintendo era.
Really? I think she had some other titles released after the SNES, perhaps on Game Boy Advance or something. Either way it's nice to see her adorable face make its return.
