For those unaware, Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is a full blown remaster of the original 3D platformer that launched back in 2003. It is, by far, the most beloved Spongebob game. While it had middling reviews, it has garnered a cult following with the speedrunning community.
Personally, I have never played it. I grew up watching Spongebob Squarepants, but it came out the same year as Tony Hawk’s Underground and NBA Street Vol. 2. I didn’t have time for cartoons when I was shreddin’ the gnar and breakin’ ankles. Regardless, it’s cool THQ Nordic is bringing back this cult favorite.
Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated launches on June 23 for Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC. You can check out our preview where Staff Writer Cameron Hawkins says, “As a 3D platformer, it is still one of my favorites across the genre no only because of the design, but because of how true it is to the Spongebob brand.
There are a variety of editions to pre-order as well. This includes the Shiny Edition, which comes with a cool Spongebob figurine and other extra goodies for $149.99. If you are a true Spongebob fan, there is also the F.U.N. Edition which will cost you $299.99.
