Once again, I have some news to share with you and it’s not about anime or video games. It’s all about the yellow cartoon SpongeBob!
SpongeBob Prequel series
Reported by Deadline, Nickelodeon announced that they are planning to do a spinoff series focusing on SpongeBob SquarePants. According to the article, the working title for the cartoon is called “Kamp Koral”. Unlike the cartoon on TV right now, this series will be a prequel series focusing on SpongeBob when he was 10 years old and the setting of the series is him at a sleepaway camp. The series will be CG animated instead of 2D animation and it will have 13 episodes. Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins announced it’s the first time they will do a spinoff show based on SpongeBob and the show will begin production in June.
Deadline describes Kamp Koral:
In the series, SpongeBob and his pals spend the summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral. SpongeBob SquarePants‘ Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller co-executive produce the prequel.
According to the site, there will be a build up to this series as we approach SpongeBob’s 20th anniversary on his TV debut. His TV appearance appeared in July 17th, 1999 and the one hour TV special Big Birthday Blowout will begin on July 12th.
SpongeBob Battle for Bikini Bottom returns!
The only SpongeBob games I remember playing as a kid was SpongeBob SquarePants: Super Sponge and SpongeBob SquarePants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman. There is one SpongeBob game that I never played but I wish I did because it’s considered one of the best and fun games according to the fans. In 2003, THQ and Heavy Iron Studios created the game SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom for PS2, GameCube and Xbox. Fans loved this game for the fun gameplay and cartoon humor. Now recently announced, Publisher THQ Nordic and developer Purple Lamp Studios are bringing back this fan favorite game for modern consoles. This returning game is called SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. This game will be for X1, Switch, PS4 and PC. Here is what the game is described according to Gematsu:
Are you ready, kids? The cult classic is back, faithfully remade in spongetastic splendor! Play as SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy and show the evil Plankton that crime pays even less than Mr. Krabs. Want to save Bikini Bottom from lots of rampant robots? Of course you do! Want to underpants bungee jump? Why wouldn’t you! Want to join forces in a brand new multiplayer mode? The battle is on!
Step aside Final Fantasy VII Remake, Death Stranding and Pokemon Sword and Shield, SpongeBob is taking over the news!
