– Rehydrated does not yet have an officially announced release date.A graphic released by Nintendo highlighting a series of major releases coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2020 indicated Battle for Bikini Bottom would be coming out on May 22.
However, when reached for comment, a spokesperson for THQ Nordic told IGN “We’re keen on getting Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated into the eagerly waiting hands of the fans as soon as possible. However, we’ve asked our magic conch shell when we should release it, and are still awaiting its command. We’ll let you know, once it has spoken.”

Interestingly, the listed date in that infographic is the same planned release date for the upcoming The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, which features that Keanu Reeves cameo. While it’s unclear why the game was listed with this release date, it’s possible the SpongeBob movie’s release date was mistaken for the game’s date.
While we don’t know when Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated will be released, we do know of the planned SpongeBob special editions players can preorder, including the F.U.N. and Shiny editions.
