Fresh from the “What took ‘em so long?” archives comes the Visit Japan with Hello Kitty iOS app. Officially sanctioned by the Japan Tourism Agency, this free application features Sanrio’s ubiquitous feline mascot as your personal ambassador to the Land of the Rising Sun. Shutterbugs can now take pictures with specially themed Hello Kittys in dozens of locations all over Japan thanks to the magic of GPS and augmented reality. Play paparazzi with H.Kit enough times and you’ll unlock a series of bonus wallpapers that would go great with your insanely impractical Hello Kitty themed iPhone case.
Not visiting Japan anytime soon? That’s okay, the Visit Japan with Hello Kitty app comes with more than 50 perfectly precious pink pictures to peruse. Ever wanted to see Hello Kitty dressed up like octopus balls? Boy, are you in for a treat!
Visit Japan with Hello Kitty is available for free on iPhone 3GS or newer devices via iTunes.
The app is also stated to work with iTouch 3rd gen or newer and iPads, but these machines lack the GPS needed to use the camera portion of the application.
Anyone else suddenly feel hungry for cute, fuzzy takoyaki?
