Vienna, Austria, January 31st, 2023: We interrupt whatever it is you’re doing for a Bikini Bottom special news report! Recent reports from our fish on the ground have described the scene as wild, claiming that the news “SpongeBob SquarePants – The Cosmic Shake is now available” has thrown Bikini Bottom into disarray: Innocent citizens and beloved landmarks have disappeared into strange, magical portals!

Officials are asking the population to stay calm and have come out with an official statement: “Notorious Bikini Bottom residents SpongeBob and Patrick are on the case!” Of course, this leads us to a number of questions: Will our heroes brave the many dangers of the fantastical WishWorlds? Will they rescue their friends and bring them home safely?

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is out now for Nintendo Switch™, PC, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One.

Since its launch in July 17, 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has reigned as the most-watched animated series for 22 consecutive years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base. SpongeBob SquarePants is one of the most widely distributed properties in Paramount International history, seen in more than 170 countries, translated in 29+ languages, and averaging more than 100 million total viewers every quarter. SpongeBob SquarePants was created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurable optimistic and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends.
