SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated will be getting two Collector’s Editions when it releases next year, both packed with exclusive goodies.

Both the Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated Shiny Edition and F.U.N. Edition will be available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC; and are available now to preorder.

This remaster of the 2003 action-adventure game adds updated visuals, polished gameplay, a brand new horde multiplayer mode and restored cut content such as the robot Squidward boss fight.

Play as SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy as they fight to defend the town of Bikini Bottom from Plankton and his army of wacky robots, in this hilarious adventure based on the beloved Nickelodeon cartoon series.

The game will have two Collector’s Editions. The first, and cheapest of the two is the Shiny Edition, which features an 8″ SpongeBob figurine with a golden spatula and flexible tongue, wallstickers, six lithographs and SpongeBob SquarePants tennis socks. It’ll set you back £140/$150, and you can check it out in the video below:

The bigger F.U.N. Edition – with a much heftier price tag of £260/$300 – comes with all of those items, plus a set of Tiki keyrings and two more figurines of Patrick and Sandy. There’s a video of that one below, too. We didn’t know we needed statues of Spongebob and his friends so much until now.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2020.

"Cynical", "sarcastic" and "irritable" are just some of the words that have been used to describe Diggy B, the other words usually being four letters long and incredibly rude. He can normally be found with a controller in his hands and strives to provide acerbic rants on all things gaming, from Gears of War to Candy Crush.
