We've got another game to add to the January list of Xbox releases! SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake finally now has a release date, and it'll be with us in just a few short weeks on January 31st, 2023.

The game is centred around SpongeBob and Patrick meeting a fortune teller who gives them a vial of Mermaid’s Tears, and when the two of them get overexcited, "their flurry of wishes tears open the very fabric of space and time".

"Wish-granting Mermaid’s Tears in the hands of SpongeBob and Patrick… What could possibly go wrong? Sure, the very fabric holding the very universe very together could come very undone, opening up portals into Wishworlds full of knights, cowboys, pirates, and prehistoric snails. But that’s nothing everyone’s favorite sponge can’t handle - with the right cosmic costume! Everybody do the Cosmic Shake!"

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is available to pre-order today both digitally and physically for £34.99 / $39.99, while a special "BFF Edition" is purchasable on the THQ Nordic store for £219.99 / $249.99 featuring a Cosmic Victory Statue, Inflatable Patrick, BFF Amulet with Necklace and much more.
