The popular 2020 mobile release's developer Tilting Point has cooked up a surprise launch on the Switch.


The Nintendo Switch has received a surprise dose of nautical nonsense, as a hit mobile game featuring Spongebob Squarepants has launched on the console out of the (deep) blue (sea).

Spongebob: Krusty Cook-Off tasks Spongebob with cooking and serving Krabby Patties in a story spanning 400 levels. The game features multiple customization options and equippable powers for Spongebob to use while cooking for Bikini Bottom's residents. The Switch version--according to the official announcement--has been redesigned for the console while adding four new cooking powers, new customization options, and new downloadable content.
