SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehyrdrated Has Crossed One Million Sold Copies
It only took SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated a little over a month to sell one million copies.
Per DSOGaming, during Embracers Q1 report webcast presentation, it was revealed that SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehrdrated has sold over one million copies. It took the game a little over a month to cross that mark since the game just released on June 23rd.
Lars Wingefors, Embracers’s CEO, stated that the game has been reviewed favorably from its fans. While the game received pretty decent reviews critically, the game has positive user reviews over on Steam.
At the end of the presentation, they noted that THQ Nordic had its best quarter ever. The company can thank both SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehrdrated and Destroy All Humans! Remake for all of the success.
For those of you who live under a rock, Rehrdrated is a complete remake of Battle For Bikini Bottom, a fondly remembered 3D platformer from the GameCube era of games. I find that the game doesn’t hold a candle to the kings of the genre, but it definitely has gone down as one of the best licensed titles ever made. Usually, we could expect licensed games to be half-ass attempts at video games with a popular brand or franchise attached to the game. When this title was released, it was a great change of pace and showed that not all licensed games are just easy cash grabs.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehrdrated is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Make sure to check out DualShockers’ review of the game right here if you are a little skeptical about picking the game up.
