SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom (BFBB) is a platformer released on October 31st, 2003 by Heavy Iron Studios for the PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Xbox. When it was released, it was already a good game that sold well for casual play, but over a decade later it still has the attention of many dedicated fans, especially thanks to its active speedrunning community. New aspects of the game have been found in its later years, causing BFBB to transform into an entirely different game than what people might remember from their childhoods. Its growing modding community has also unraveled many secrets regarding the game's design, development, and quirks.
On June 5, 2019, THQ Nordic announced on Twitter and YouTube that a remake of the game will be made, entitled SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom: Rehydrated. Purple Lamp Studios is in charge of development, writing it from the ground up using Unreal Engine 4 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The game will be released in 2020.
