Someone talk me out of wanting to play Hello Kitty Online

Hello Kitty Online has to be the girliest, silliest looking MMO in existence, and if I close my eyes tight I can easily imagine scores of eight year old girls getting glued to their computers at an early age and driving their mothers to a life of anti-gaming rallies. Still, there’s some small part of me that wants to play it. I don’t know, maybe it’s that I’m attracted to silly things, or that I’m curious what a Hello Kitty MMO would be like. Or maybe the eight year old girl in me wants to play it and forget all my grown-up cares. Who knows?

At any rate, there is a new trailer for the title (see after the jump) that ought to encrust your eyelids with sugar just by watching it. The free-to-play MMO is currently taking signups for the closed beta in the US, and if, like me, you find some weird craving to download it and see what it’s all about, you can do so here. If you’re male and you choose to do this and are discovered by a parent, girlfriend, brother or otherwise, please do not blame me for the sh*tstorm that ensues afterwards.
