Original (6/30): Minecraft isn’t slowing down on its collaborations, and it’s now been revealed that the game is teaming up with SpongeBob SquarePants from Nickelodeon.
So far it’s been confirmed that Mojang Studios has looked to replicate iconic locations from the show, including Bikini Bottom and the well-known houses of the characters. And speaking of characters, it looks like we can expect to see SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, Plankton, and Gary.
