After announcing it last year, we’ve been eagerly awaiting Purple Lamp Studio’s updates SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. While we still don’t have any indication of a release date (guess that the mail must be slow out of Bikini Bottom), we have now received a first look at some gameplay footage.
Introduced at Gamescom today, the level we see playing is set in Wild West Jellyfish Fields – one of seven worlds you can explore in the game. (Thanks to Nintendo Everything to share footage.) And, like very interesting SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated – which we gave 7/10 in our review – This 3D platformer takes SpongeBob on a McGuffin hunt around a Wild West setting, mining cacti and dispatching troublesome jellyfish.
The great thing to see in the game is the authentic voice cast, which collects the original members of the show including Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, Clancy Brown and more, giving them a complete scenario. All new and original story to work with.
It should be noted that the above footage was recorded from the PC version of the game so the Switch release may look and run a little differently That being said, the gameplay looks quite similar to Battle For Bikini Bottom on its own. , so the difference may not also jarring.
For what else the game has to offer, check out the following list of cool features you’ll find in SpongeBob’s upcoming deep-sea adventure:
– Unlock classic and new platforming skills like Fishing Rope and Kick Karate
– Equip over 30 FUNtastic skins like SnailBob and SpongeGar
– Travel to 7 distinct wish worlds like Wild West Jellyfish Field and Halloween Rock Bottom
– Experience all the jokes in the movie with SpongeBob’s constant companion Balloon-Patrick
– Meet all your favorite Bikini Sites from the series, voiced by their original actors
– Enjoy the in-game soundtrack of 101 songs from the series, including Sweet Victory
We’ll be keeping an eye on any news on the Cosmic Shake release date. Considering the state of the game footage, we can imagine that this news will come sooner rather than later.
