THQ Nordic has just announced a release date for SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. PC and Xbox One players will get the game first on June 23, 2020, with Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 editions released at a later date. No doubt this will disappoint PS4 and Switch gamers, but the wait will be worth it. Our man Leithal loved seeing it at PAX2019, and this is what he had to say about the game:
“The remake of the PS2 classic has been beautifully restored with incredible colour, 3D graphics and fluid game-play that fans of the little sponge are going to love. The detailed graphics and addictive gameplay should prove to be a massive hit with Purple Lamp studios building everything from the ground up. What I did get to play was exciting to see this old classic treated with the same care as the Crash Bandicoot series remake. Even the audio had the same music and sound effects that have also been enhanced and updated. I cannot wait to get my hands on the full version when it’s released and you should too!”
In SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, you play as SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy and show the evil Plankton that crime pays even less than Mr. Krabs.
Want to save Bikini Bottom from lots of rampant robots with your mighty bubbles? Of course you do!
Want to underpants bungee jump? Why wouldn’t you!
Want to join forces in a brand new multiplayer mode? The battle is on!
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated has the following enhanced features over the original:
- High-end visuals, modern resolutions and carefully polished gameplay
- Brand new horde mode multiplayer for up to two players, online and offline
- Restored content that was cut from the original game like the Robo Squidward boss fight and more
The game is available to pre-order on PC and Xbox now from the official website. PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch users can register to be notified of release updates.
