THQ Nordic announced today as part of the Embracer Group Q1 Report Webcast Presentation that SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated has got off to a fantastic start since its release in June, notching up over one million sales in just under two months.
The success of the game reportedly "exceeded management expectations," leading to THQ Nordic's best quarter to date. In contrast, the recent release of Desperados III was classed as a more "narrow niche," expected to generate commercial performance over the long term.
It's no surprise to hear that the SpongeBob remake has done so well, given the significant nostalgia for the original title that released back in 2003. THQ Nordic recently put out another remake of a classic title - 2005's Destroy All Humans - and while sales figures haven't been released for that game yet, the publisher again says that it has so far exceeded management expectations.
