Nintendo is a water-tight operation most of the time, but no publisher is perfect. Via an infographic from the company, the release date for SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated has been inadvertently revealed.

According to this timeline, the remaster of the fan favourite PlayStation 2 title will be ready for release on 22nd May. We can quite comfortably presume this date will be the same across platforms, and we'd expect THQ Nordic to confirm the news themselves pretty soon.

What's interesting about this release date, at least on PS4, is that it means the game comes out a week before a little thing called The Last of Us: Part II. The two titles are probably targeting different audiences, but we imagine Naughty Dog's latest would steal sales away from most games regardless. The two games are about as far apart as can be in terms of content, though, so who knows.

Are you excited to pick up SpongeBob Rehydrated on PS4? Will you wait for The Last of Us 2, or will you in fact be buying both? Blow some bubbles in the comments below.
