Today, THQ Nordic and Purple Lamp Studios announced a release date for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. The game is confirmed to be launching for Switch on January 31, 2023.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake previously revealed special additions – we have more information about that here. Also confirmed now is that those who pre-order will receive the Official Costume Pack, which has seven additional costumes.

switch/”>SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake was shown at Gamescom 2022 today. We’re able to get a lengthy look at Wild West Jellyfish Fields, one of the seven Wishworlds in the title.

Here’s some information about the game:

Three more characters have been introduced for Fire Emblem Engage – specifically Griss, Mauvier, and Yunaka. Tidbits were shared on the series’ Japanese Twitter account and translated by Serenes Forest.

First up is Griss, who is voiced by Kenjiro Tsuda in the Japanese version. He’s a loyal member of the Four Hounds – a group that intends to resurrect the Fell Dragon. Griss is both a violent and utterly deranged wielder of magic. With his cruel personality, the fiercer his foes are, the more power he’ll unleash. Zephia does appear to trust their leader, Zephia.

Thanks to GamesIndustry, we have new insight into the UK gaming market for November 2022.

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet performed huge as expected. Both games (plus the double pack) would have ended up at #3 on the latest sales chart had they been combined. This also isn’t counting digital data. Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet had the second biggest launch for a Pokemon game in UK history – only Sun and Moon did better.

Enjoy four great retro platformers inspired by the NES, SNES, and Nintendo 64 eras in Super Retro Platformer Collection, featuring Commander Keen in Keen Dreams: Definitive Edition, Macbat 64, Regina & Mac, and Toree 3D!

Game 1: Commander Keen in Keen Dreams: Definitive Edition

Commander Keen is back. In the modernised Definitive Edition of the lost episode “Keen Dream”, Keen has to fend off a nasty nightmare about evil vegetables. The Definitive Edition features full widescreen support, twelve all-new levels – doubling the length over the 1990 original – and a full music score. The game structure has been reworked to make the game a more modern experience without sacrificing any of the original charm!

Game 2: Macbat 64: Journey of a Nice Chap

Embark on a journey with the lovable bat Macbat, as he ventures through 9 colorful platforming levels to obtain the keys to the water factory to restore water production. Featuring a playful artstyle reminiscent of the 64-bit era, Macbat 64 will fly right to the hearts of all 90s platformer fans.

Game 3: Regina & Mac

Join the macaw Regina and the tyrannosaurus Mac on their adventure as they try to escape a lifeless research lab. The only way out? To find the golden Floppy discs on which the memory of the lab’s computer system U64 is stored so that it can help the duo to find an exit. Regina & Mac is a 3D platformer that stands in the tradition of the classics from the late 90s and offers a fair challenge even for genre aficionados.

Game 4: Toree 3D

A bite-sized 3D platformer with a few weird elements. Life as a chirp is hard: As Toree straddles about, a creepy mean guy comes rushing along and steals Toree’s ice cream. In an attempt to right this wrong, Toree starts a furious chase through nine carefully crafted levels with a strong emphasis on speed and flow.
