Mistwalker - the team behind Lost Odyssey and The Last Story - have released the first trailer for their upcoming iOS title Party Wave.
Eschewing the JRPG trapping of their back catalogue, Mistwalker have created a frenetic arcade title, couched in the relatively untapped "action aurfing" genre.
"Mistwalker is pleased to present an action surfing game," explains the official blurb.
"'Party wave'" A phrase you may have heard in the crystal blue ocean as several locals catch a wave. Jump into the water and join the surfers for an epic ride.
"The objective of this game is to guide the surfers to catch a wave and avoid the obstacles. Touch the surfers to make them turn and jump so they won't wipe out".
The video shows off some fast-paced surfing gameplay that sees gamers trying to avoid massive jellyfish and leaping dolphins, and cuddling up to mermaids. There's also an amazingly budget mini PowerPoint-esque credits sequence that shows Sakaguchi surfing.
We're very confused right now, and can't stop listening to the theme music on the site.
