THQ Inc. (NASDAQ:THQI) today announced plans to deliver its first demolition derby style party game, SpongeBob’s Boating Bash, in spring 2010. Currently in development for the Wii video game system, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo DSi, SpongeBob’s Boating Bash is a high energy and fast-paced video game that lets players compete as one of nine SpongeBob characters and “crash-n-bash” their way to victory within demolition arenas throughout Bikini Bottom.
The multi-player game allows up to four players to drive more than 100 customized boat mobiles, while trying to knock off and collect other boat parts in order to earn points and move up levels, and ultimately earn their boat mobile license.
After failing to pass Ms. Puff’s boat mobile driving class 78 times, SpongeBob SquarePants remains determined to finally earn a boat mobile license but is tricked into taking the wacky “Learn to D.R.I.V.E.” course offered to him by a shady shark named Seymour Scales. SpongeBob has no idea that the course literally will steer him in zany directions. SpongeBob’s Boating Bash will introduce an off-the-wall driving adventure that will have players swerving to avoid obstacles, crashing against other boat mobiles to win a race, all the while collecting boat parts to earn points. Driving behind the wheel of customizable boat mobiles, players will wreak havoc and demolish their opponent’s boats to ultimately be the last one standing.Tags: Games
