A significant new update to SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated has released that fixes many bugs, exploits, and even some progression.
Some of the issues that have been fixed include diagonal movement on joycons that made SpongeBob move too slowly, game crashing when enemies targeted the player, the ball from the tutorial not re-spawning, and the game crashing if you triggered a button during the loading screen. Most importantly, the developer has implemented a fix to reduce the chance of corrupted save games. In terms of additions, the cult-classic remake now has the option to replay Robo-Bosses after their first defeat, more concept art in the Theater, and more music in the multiplayer mode.
