As a departure from Mistwalker's role-playing games, Party Wave is a game about surfing. Players will guide multiple surfers past obstacles in the water then perform tricks as the surfers ride the wave.
"Surfing is one of my hobbies and I'm pleased to make it an iOS game," Sakaguchi said.
"When surf is small and many are surfing, surfers sometimes catch the same wave and call out 'Party Wave!' When I heard those voices, I decided to make this game where game players can experience the shared fun of surfing.
"It's nearly complete. I hope many people enjoy it when it's available."
