A new GamesBeat event is just around the corner! Learn more about what’s next.
THQ Nordic revealed SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake during today’s 10th anniversary event.
Last year, THQ Nordic turned to Purple Lamp Studios to remake SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom, a 3D platformer that first debuted in 2003. Now Purple Lamp is once again teaming up with THQ Nordic for a new original game.
The Cosmic Shake does not have a release date. It is scheduled to release for PC, Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S consoles will be playable through backward compatibility.
3D platformer games have made a comeback in recent years. It started with remakes of classic games, such as the original Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon trilogies, along with Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated. But now new 3D platformers, including this year’s Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Psychonauts 2, are making waves. And since SpongeBob lives in the ocean (in a pineapple under the sea, to be precise), I guess he felt those churning waters and decided it was finally time for a new game.
