When The Last Story’s Artist Draws Surfing Dogs

Party Wave, Mistwalker’s next title comes out soon, and Hironobu Sakaguchi had a familiar artist draw surfers for the game. Kimihiko Fujisaka who worked on the Drakengard games and The Last Story made Skip, a surfing dog, and Zack the face of Party Wave.

Hiso (the alien dude) flies around while players tap on the surfers to make them jump. If you rub Hiso he’ll hold up a star players can grab.

    Oh jeez, those could be shmup bullet patterns.

    I really like the character designs. Simple, and it conveys.

       Looking at Skip, it “conveys” a lot! *Nudge Nudge*

    … And now I’m imagining Caim and his Red Dragon (yes I know her name but I ain’t a spoilery type) hanging back and catching some waves and relaxing instead of killing children by the hundreds and being pawns in a conspiracy to end all existence.

    Have to admit I kind of want this to happen now because anything that can alleviate the sheer despair of that game is good in my book ;_;
