"Opening with trouble in Bikini Bottom, someone has stolen King Neptune's crown and it looks like Mr. Krabs is the culprit! Though he's just been passed over for the promotion of his dreams, SpongeBob stands by his boss, and along with his best friend Patrick, sets out on a treacherous mission to Shell City to reclaim the crown and save Mr. Krabs' life."
The game takes players on a heroic, comedic quest to new and unexplored territory. Players will assume the identity of either SpongeBob or Patrick -- each with their own set of unique maneuvers -- and work together to save Mr. Krabs and all of Bikini Bottom. Along the way, they will interact with favorite characters from the movie, including authentic voices and special cameo appearances.
