Battle for Bikini Bottom has to be the most-wanted
THQ Nordic has been steadily reviving games from the expansive THQ catalog, from De Blob to Titan Quest to Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. Today, the company announced plans to re-release a bunch of old licensed titles based on Nickelodeon properties. I can already see the SpongeBob memes.
Here’s what’s on the docket, generally speaking:
- Avatar: The Last Airbender
- Back At The Barnyard
- Danny Phantom
- El Tigre
- Invader Zim
- Jimmy Neutron
- My Life As A Teenage Robot
- Rocket Power
- Rocko’s Modern Life
- SpongeBob SquarePants
- Tak and the Power of Juju
- The Fairly OddParents (US only)
- The Ren & Stimpy Show
- The Wild Thornberrys
“It is a perfect fit for our ‘asset care’ strategy: bringing back fan-favorites, continuing to support legacy games and make them available on current and even next-gen platforms,” said Adrienne Lauer, Vice President of Digital Sales & Business Development Americas.
Some of these shows spawned a ton of different titles, so it’ll be interesting to see what exactly THQ Nordic chooses to focus on. I don’t have any particular nostalgia for these games, but even with the less-than-great adaptations, it’s nice to see them preserved on modern platforms.
“On-shelf availability will be announced in the coming months,” according to THQ Nordic.
