Are you ready, kids? Based on all the feedback we’ve received since we announced Rehydrated, we know you are! That’s why the team at Purple Lamp Studios wanted to give you everything you know and love about the original Battle for Bikini Bottom plus even more features and extra content. Rehydrated delivers a true remake that does way more than satisfy nostalgic SpongeBob fans… did somebody say multiplayer?
Rehydrated embraces the well-known and well-loved features of the original, including the ability to play as iconic characters SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy, each with their own unique abilities. Only SpongeBob can use his underpants to bungee jump, only Patrick can turn water to ice so he can run across it, and only Sandy can use her lasso to traverse the gamescape.
We are also introducing restored content in multiplayer that was cut from the original game. Players can look forward to a new boss fight with Robo-Squidward and a segment based on Patrick’s dream.
The team at Purple Lamp Studios was extremely inspired by the philosophies of Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob. When updating the game, the team embraced all the wonderful little details that were already part of the original game, while at the same time adding little nods to the seasons that were aired after its release. Every aspect of SpongeBob that makes it the timeless, well-loved TV show and highly anticipated theatrical release that it is today is celebrated in the game!
All of this said, I think the element I am most excited for the fans to play is the new multiplayer mode. In either online or couch co-op, two players can battle the robots from the main game across over twenty islands. In addition to playing as SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy, multiplayer allows players to do battle as Mr. Krabs, Gary, Squidward, and Robo-Plankton, each with its own set of moves and attacks.
Now, the only thing left to do is pick your character because SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is out now!
