'SpongeBob's Surf & Skate Roadtrip' (ALL) Announced

by Rainier on Oct. 5, 2011 @ 4:18 a.m. PDT

In this brand new road trip adventure, SpongeBob and friends find themselves taking to the waves on surfboards and tearing up all the gnarliest skateboarding turf with their wildest moves and tricks.

SpongeBob’s Surf & Skate Roadtrip will be the very first game with which players can use the Kinect technology to experience skateboarding and surfing right in their living rooms.

SpongeBob Surf & Skate Roadtrip features both single- and two-player options for boarders to perfect their awesome skills. In single-player mode, SpongeBob and Patrick set out on a crazy roadtrip adventure, engaging players in arcade-style story-driven gameplay. In two-player mode, boarding skills are put to the test with simultaneous head-to-head split-screen action.

“This is SpongeBob’s first game on Kinect for Xbox 360, and for the first time, players will actually become SpongeBob,” said Martin Good, Executive Vice President of PlayTHQ™, the company's division for kids, family and casual games. “It’s a great combination of a classic character and amazing technology, not to mention both the first surfing and first skating game ever released for Kinect.”

On Kinect for Xbox 360, players will surf and skate through 12 totally tubular environments as they perfect their boarding skills and immerse themselves in augmented reality. Using the innovative technology, boarders can reach down and watch the water splash up on screen!

The Kinect™ version also features a variety of boards and seven different challenge modes including Flag, Mine, Timed and Score Runs. Using the built-in camera, players can even snap photos and show off their radical moves!

With Nintendo DS, players will surf and skate across more than 100 maps and even carve up 10 righteous snowboarding levels that are unlockable upon completion. Those hoping to prove their skills can choose from five challenging victory conditions – Combo Mayhem, Untouchable, Score, Win the Race and Collectible modes. The Nintendo DS version also features two-player multi-play with single- and multi-card gaming.

SpongeBob’s Surf & Skate Roadtrip will be available on Kinect for X360 (MSRP $49.99) and NDS (MSRP $29.99).
