Publisher THQ Nordic has revealed that Purple Lamp Studios' highly anticipated SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated will be releasing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on the 23rd of June. If you just can't wait to purchase the fast-approaching video game, it's now available to pre-order on PC (via GOG and Steam) and Xbox One, with PS4 and Switch to follow "at a later date."
According to THQ, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated is a "faithful remake of one of the best SpongeBob games ever created," including the reimagined base version of the 2003 classic, a new online mode, and cut content from the original, such as a boss battle with Robo-Squidward.
When it comes to the aforementioned multiplayer component, it basically is a Gears of War–esuqe horde mode for two players (taking on the role of SpongeBob, Patrick or Sandy); also playable in split-screen mode.
The upcoming production is being created at Purple Lamp Studios, the makers of The Guild 3. The long-awaited game will also contain "all fifteen beloved tracks that make every day the Best Day Ever!"
