Whoooooo lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants!
Get ready to join our favourite under-the-sea gang in Spongebob Squarepants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge. In this original story, Bikini Bottom’s very own Sheldon J. Plankton, known for his obsession with stealing the Krusty Krab’s secret formula, has new plans to build a mechanised army, threatening the serene seas of Bikini Bottom. Join SpongeBob and his friends as they stop Plankton’s evil plan and protect the prized Krabby Patty Formula.
Blending exploration, combat, and puzzle-solving, Spongebob Squarepants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge features references and humour from the hit Nickelodeon TV animated series. Gamers of all ages and skill levels can get together with co-op party mode, creating an experience that’s fun for one, but better with others. Fans can choose between their favourite characters like Spongebob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy or Mr. Krabs as they scour the town hunting for hidden collectibles.
Activision and Nickelodeon have announced everyone's favourite water-absorbing sea creature will be starring in a new game later this year known as SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge.
The game will be released on Wii U, Wii, 3DS and DS - as well as PS3, XBOX 360 platforms - and is being developed by Canadian studio Behaviour Interactive. It's a third person, action-adventure game that sees old SpongeBob square off against Sheldon J. Plankton, who's created a mechanical army to steal the Krusty Krab’s prized Krabby Patty Formula.
It features a mixture of exploration, combat and puzzle-solving and you'll be able to defend Bikini Bottom alone or with friends as the console versions have a co-op mode thrown in for good measure. Naturally, the pantaloon-wearing sponge is playable, but Patrick, Squidward, Sandy and Mr. Krabs are also available for selection.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge is set to be made available on 22nd October. While other systems will only feature four-player multiplayer, the Wii U will allow for five people to get involved at once locally. The Wii edition will accommodate four, but you won't be able to play with your pals on the handheld iterations, which is disappointing.
