While 2020 laid down a firm hand on the world’s population, some nostalgic video game players found an outlet during the noise that continues to echo that is the novel coronavirus epidemic. In June last year, THQ Nordic and developer Purple Lamp Games shipped SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. The game is a remake of the original, same-named title which released back in 2003.

Although the new release incorporates the charm of the first game with a new set graphics and assets, the remake did not implement changes which fans had complaints about the first time around. But despite the same hiccups being reiterated, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is a fun return for those looking to flip back the calendar.

But, the game is not only shipping to major platforms. In a new trailer, Purple Lamp Games and publisher Handy Games unveil SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is coming to mobile devices. You can watch the announcement trailer in the video below:

“After the outstanding success of SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated on PC and consoles, THQ Nordic family member HandyGames teamed up with Nickelodeon to bring this unique experience to iOS and Android as a premium title without microtransactions or any hidden paywalls,” the trailer’s description reads.

”You pay once and play the full game to your heart’s content. The world’s most beloved sea dweller is getting ready to save Bikini Bottom on your mobile device, and he brought all his friends (and enemies) to join in on the fun. Prepare yourself, for there is evil afoot!”

Outside of SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, THQ Nordic revealed in November that it is fully acquiring Purple Lamp Games. The publishing conglomerate also revealed acquisitions for about a dozen of other teams as well. You can read the full report by heading here.
