THQ Nordic Showcase reveals six new games, including a brand new SpongeBob platformer

During its Tenth Anniversary Showcase, publisher THQ Nordic revealed the existence of six new projects. One of these just so happens to be a brand new SpongeBob game, which follows upon the success of their Battle for Bikini Bottom remaster.

Here’s what you need to know:

Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed:

Everyone’s favourite, probe-loving alien, Crypto, will return in his second remade adventure. This time around, he’ll invade the swinging sixties.

Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed is going to be a full remake, which will utilize the Unreal 4 Engine. It’s currently in-development at Black Forest Games, and will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake:

Unlike his last outing on modern consoles, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is being developed as an all-new adventure. One that will feature the original voice cast.

Everything is possible in the infinite expanses of the cosmos .. there might even be a reality where mayonnaise isn’t an instrument! When the mysterious fortune teller Kassandra grants SpongeBob and Patrick wishes, the two buddies unintentionally open up portals to strange Wishworlds… it’s all F.U.N. and games until their friends get lost in the portals! Explore seven distinct worlds and don more than 30 cosmic skins to rescue the universe of the brand new adventure SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake, available on PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

Outcast 2: A New Beginning:

Cutter Slade returns to the alien world of Adelpha, in this sequel to the popular third-person adventure game.

Twenty years after the events of the first game, Adelpha finds itself under threat of invasion: ruthless corporations are exploiting the planet and are enslaving and even killing the people. Cutter’s mission is clear: organize a resistance, rescue the people, and get rid of the invaders. Outcast 2 is developed by the original team behind the first Outcast Adventure – Appeal Studios from Belgium. The open-world action-adventure features fast-paced 3rd person combat as well as a non-linear Science-Fantasy story with dynamic plot progress based on player actions.

This project is in-development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC.

Jagged Alliance 3:

Fans have been waiting decades for a third instalment in this strategy franchise. Now, those who’ve been waiting and hoping for a new announcement, have something to look forward to.

The strategy game experts from Haemimont Games, well known for their work on the Tropico-Series, Surviving Mars, Victor Vran and many other great games will finally create a true successor to the beloved series. This time, the player takes command of a mercenary force in the fictional country of Grand Chien – a land thrown into chaos after a brutal paramilitary force known as “the Legion” took over. Jagged Alliance 3 will combine tactically deep, turn-based combat with exploration of a large game world with strategic elements including gaining control over territories, training local forces, and establishing multiple squads chosen from beloved mercenaries – all well known to fans of the series. Jagged Alliance 3 will have RPG-elements like special perks or level-ups for your mercenaries, as well as looting and customizing your arsenal of weaponry.

Coming to PC, Jagged Alliance 3 will also feature a co-op multiplayer mode so you can free Grand Chien together with a friend.

Superpower 3:

Superpower is tailor-made for all the megalomaniacs out there who are convinced they would do a much better job of running the world than the real-life leaders across the globe! In this grand-strategy game, set in the contemporary world, your goal is to lead your chosen nation to world domination or to master special scenarios. Wouldn’t it be tempting to re-establish the British Empire? Players take control of the economy, politics, diplomacy, social development, military strategy, and more. If you ever wanted to become the ruler of the world, in Superpower 3 for PC you can give it your best shot!

MX vs ATV: Legends:

The long-running extreme sports series will make its PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series debut with MX vs ATV: Legends.

Featuring the deepest career mode to date, MX vs ATV Legends invites you to carve your own path to the podium with unprecedented player choice including sponsorship opportunities and special invitational events. The all new Trails mode pits you against nature like never before! Your time is now!

That’s not all, though, folks. THQ Nordic also released new footage from ELEX II, through the form of a new story trailer, which tells us what drove Jax — the Beast of Xactor — into isolation, and why it’s time for him to leave it.

Last, but not least, the team behind Expeditions: Rome has released a video explaining what makes their game special.
