THQ Nordic has announced it's developing a native PS5 version of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake, set to release next month on 16th October 2023. There will be a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade available for current owners, and the new version will sport DualSense controller capabilities as well as new features that are also being patched into the PS4 version. Check out the announcement trailer above.

Built into the PS5 edition and coming to PS4 as a free update, a new Photo Mode will let you apply 19 different filters to your screenshots while two new costumes allow you to kit the characters out in new gear. The patch will also include some bug fixes, addressing issues with save states and the overall stability of the game.

Originally released for PS4 in January 2023, we awarded the original game a 6/10 in our review and concluded: "The premise is good, the level design is imaginative, and there's a clear love for the IP with its countless references and costumes. However, some of the gameplay feels very dated, while a number of presentational shortcomings and a laundry list of bugs hold it back."
