In celebration of today’s launch, THQ Nordic and Purple Lamp have shared a new trailer for SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. We have it below.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is out today on Switch both physically and digitally.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom has gone on to become a fan favorite since its original debut on GameCube back in 2003. Now THQ Nordic and Purple Lamp have brought the game back with a new “Rehydrated” release on Switch, which gives the 3D platformer a fresh coat of paint and more.

Ahead of tomorrow’s release, Nintendo Everything spoke with THQ Nordic producer Martin Kreuch. We spoke about restoring cut content from the original, the new multiplayer mode, working with the speedrunning community, and more.

Here’s our full discussion:

System: Switch
Release date: June 23, 2020
Developer: Purple Lamp
Publisher: THQ Nordic


SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom would seem like an unlikely candidate for a remastering (or a rehydration) considering that – to the credit of the original – it’s merely an above average licensed 3D platformer of the GameCube generation. These games have almost completely vanished, but for its time these games were everywhere. I have an especially vague sense of nostalgia with this game: I actually can’t remember if I played Battle for Bikini Bottom specifically or if it was any of the other countless similar SpongeBob games that were released in the half decade following it. To further complicate this nostalgia, Battle for Bikini Bottom doesn’t just evoke the other SpongeBob games of its generation, but games like the now-forgotten Tak and the Power of Juju (which, as an aside, one might say was a trailblazer in the modern video-game-to-failed-TV-series pipeline.) Put aside the modern visual overhaul of Rehydrated in the Unreal Engine, which is competent but less than optimal on the Switch, and the game seems frozen in time. Rehydrated still feels like a game from 2003, but with the relative rarity of its kind in 2020, it’s hardly worse for it.
