Final Fantasy creator launching Party Wave this summer

Hironobu Sakaguchi, who created the Final Fantasy series, will release his iOS game Party Wave this July, according to developer Mistwalker.

"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 sometime 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 completed.  Hope many people enjoy it when it’s available."

Party Wave sounds like a perfect summer game, especially for those of us who live no where near the ocean … or prefer to stay on the beach.
