SpongeBob and THQ have had a scarily successful career in the realm of videogames, and their reign of yellow terror shall continue with SpongeBob’s Surf & Skate Roadtrip on November 8th. If you can't tell, the game will involve surfing and skating and SpongeBob. Surf and Skate will primarily be a Kinect title, but a DS version is in the works. I find the DS version interesting considering that THQ is already putting SpongeBob on the 3DS. The Kinect version is going for the augmented reality approach, as players will simulate the act of skating through 12 different environments. THQ is taking some pride in the fact that this is going to be the first skating game on the Kinect as well.
As quoted by the Executive Vice President of PlayTHQ: “This is SpongeBob’s first game on Kinect for Xbox 360, and for the first time, players will actually become SpongeBob." My God. I love the comical implications of our children being taught how to be SpongeBob Squarepants. We've got to have some readers with kids. Do the SpongeBob games have a history of keeping them entertained?
