Sanrio is collaborating with the toy and game maker Mattel to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Uno card game with a special Uno Hello Kitty game release in September in Japan.
Each numbered card in the deck features a depiction of Hello Kitty wearing different facial expressions. The deck will also feature a special card that allows players to switch all their cards with a neighbor.
In July, Bandai and Mattel reissued their Uno One Piece card game, which featured original art and special cards. Bandai and Mattel have also released a Doraemon game in the past.
Sanrio is currently working with Capcom on Hello Kitty cross-over merchandise with the Street Fighter video game franchise.
