SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is out today. To celebrate the return of many a 2000s baby’s childhood classic, THQ Nordiq debuted a shiny new launch trailer for your viewing. Check it out, and see if you can resist the nostalgic temptations to stop what you’re doing and dive right back into SpongeBob’s best video game adventure.
The trailer opens up with a nice nod to the game’s revered status among so many young adult players, showing a child enjoying the original Battle for Bikini Bottom way back in 2003. Seventeen years later, the child grew up and started a family of his own, who are now all crowding around the TV to take turns with the Rehydrated version of a sixth-gen classic.
Bringing players old and new together, the trailer reflects what is likely to be a very wide player base for this remake. While many of us are reliving old memories with Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, SpongeBob SquarePants is an everlasting show (its quality, maybe not), so plenty of new fans are sure to be experiencing Bikini Bottom’s robot takeover for the first time.
At just a $30 launch price, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Remastered is a tempting dive for anyone who enjoys the show or wants to experience a shinier version fo an old favorite, as we said in our review.
