SpongeBob HeroPants follows the events of Paramount Pictures’ animated/live-action film, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, with an original story straight out of SpongeBob’s imagination. Pages of a magical tome have escaped into Bikini Bottom and someone is using them to unleash a nightmare of aquatic proportions, altering space and time along with it. SpongeBob must team up with his buddies, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Plankton, to find these lost pages in order to save their hometown.
SpongeBob HeroPants is a third-person action platformer with a mix of combat, traversal, exploration and puzzle-solving that makes it enjoyable and accessible for players of all ages. The game features six playable characters to choose from, and each has the ability to transform into their uniquely fashioned super-powered champion from the movie to reach new heights and defeat the bad dreams plaguing Bikini Bottom. As the lost pages of the movie’s magical book plunges them into new eras in time, SpongeBob and his pals will have to upgrade their skills, survive boss battles and discover the secrets in altered versions of their town to find their way home again. Like SpongeBob, players can grab friends to join the adventure with four-person local drop-in/drop-out cooperative multiplayer (exclusive to Xbox 360).
SpongeBob HeroPants is now available on Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS, PSVita and PlayStationTV.
