SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake Gameplay Trailer Looks Awesome

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake gameplay trailer THQ Nordic Digital Showcase 2022 Purple Lamp

At the THQ Nordic Digital Showcase 2022, developer Purple Lamp revealed a full gameplay trailer for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. It is an original game and the long-anticipated follow-up to Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, which was a remake. The premise is that SpongeBob and Patrick obtain Mermaid’s Tears, which grant wishes, and that sounds like a good thing — but evidently they find a way to make things go very wrong. Now, you’ll travel into “Wishworlds full of knights, cowboys, pirates, and prehistoric snails,” using cosmic costumes to help you along.

Here is a list of gameplay features to expect in SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake, some of which you’ll notice in the new trailer:

  • Unlock classic and new platforming skills like the Fishhook Swing and Karate Kick
  • Don more than 30 F.U.N.tastic costumes like SnailBob and SpongeGar
  • Travel to 7 distinct Wishworlds like Wild West Jellyfish Fields and Halloween Rock Bottom
  • Experience all the buddy movie banter with SpongeBob’s permanent companion Balloon-Patrick
  • Meet all your favorite Bikini Bottomites from the series, voiced by their original actors
  • Enjoy the in-game soundtrack featuring 101 songs from the series, including Sweet Victory

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake will come to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, no release window yet.
