Check out five minutes of SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated below, courtesy of Gematsu and coming directly from the Gamescom Together live stream.

From a technical standpoint, the game looks pretty good, although I find its muted colors to be a downgrade from the original. Gameplay-wise, the mission showed SpongeBob trying to collect Patrick’s dirty socks for him, and traversing the levels many ups and downs along the way. The animations look pretty smooth, and I can distinctly hear that topnotch music and sound design in the background, which sounds pretty amazing.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated will also add a new multiplayer horde mode for up to two players, which can be played either online or local split screen. As for the base game itself, THQ Nordic has noted that it will be restoring content that was cut from the original game, like a boss fight with Robo Squidward.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated will be released for the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch at a later date.

Be sure to stick around for more news on the latest happenings at Gamescom all throughout the week.
