Over the years, the number of Hello Kitty games has grown exponentially. Sanrio’s iconic bow-wearing feline friend managed to break out of Japanese culture and spread across the globe, getting just as popular in the US and Europe, which in turn spawned a plethora of adorable games and collaborations for us to enjoy. Here’s a list of the best Hello Kitty games on the Switch and mobile.

If you prefer your animal companions with fewer bows and more bark, check out our list of dog games. We’ve also collected the best bear games, snake games, horse games, and frog games for the zoologically-inclined gamers out there.

These are the best Hello Kitty games on Switch and mobile, wrapped up in a bow just for you.
