No, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated Doesn't Have a Release Date Yet

Despite a release date infographic suggesting the remake did have a May release date, THQ Nordic has confirmed to IGN that SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated does not yet have an officially announced release date. A graphic released by Nintendo highlighting a series of major releases coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2020 indicated Battle for Bikini Bottom would be coming out on May 22. However, when reached for comment, a spokesperson for THQ Nordic told IGN "We’re keen on getting Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated into the eagerly waiting hands of the fans as soon as possible. However, we’ve asked our magic conch shell when we should release it, and are still awaiting its command. We’ll let you know, once it has spoken."

While it's unclear why the game was listed with this release date, it's possible the SpongeBob movie's release date was mistaken for the game's date. While we don't know when Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated will be released, we do know of the planned SpongeBob special editions players can preorder, including the F.U.N. and Shiny editions. After Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated's announcement early last year, THQ Nordic showed off gameplay of the SpongeBob remake at Gamescom 2019 [ignvideo url=""] [poilib element="accentDivider"] Jonathon Dornbush is IGN's Senior News Editor, PlayStation lead, and Podcast Beyond! host.
