    THQ-Nordic-556x340-555x339.

    Those who grew up with the kid's cartoon channel Nickelodeon in the 1990s and early 2000s might be excited to know that publisher THQ Nordic has teamed up with Nick in order to revive some older games that the original THQ company had published with them back in the day. Nostalgic video game adaptations of series like SpongeBob Squarepants, Rugrats, Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, and more were all listed as franchises that THQ Nordic has an interest in bringing back to consumers. Details about which games exactly, what platform, and the availability of this revival will be announced in the "coming months", according to the company.

    Battle for Bikini Bottom is number one on that list for me, we need to see that game come back for a new generation of gamers

    Wouldn't mind seeing Battle for Volcano Island get revived as well, Avatar was a good game from what i remember

    I really wish AAAH! Real Monsters was on here. I'd love to see an update to the SNES game. But a Battle for Bikini Bottom HD would be AMAZING.

    OH. MY. GOD. As an early 2000's kid, this is just heavenly. Loved the SpongeBob games, especially Truth or Square. Lets hope they bring these games to Switch though.

    Hopefully we'll get another Nicktoons Unite!
    I loved that game to death, and also every Nickelodeon crossover game for the GBA.

    I love those Avatar games on the GBA. I'd really hope the cast of the characters are Aang and Co and not Korra's team, but maybe that's just me

    I'm pretty sure none of these are any games that are remembered for amazing gameplay, but these are pure nostalgia for people that grew up with them.

    While I will admit that some of these games were crap, a select few of the nick licensed games from this time period were far better than they had any right to be. Battle for bikini bottom actually helped introduce me to gaming back in the day. It took my love of SpongeBob as a child and turned into a game that was halfway decent and pretty fun to play. So the chance that I could get a battle of bikini bottom remaster has me really excited. It would be even more amazing if it came to the switch, but I'm just happy we might be getting a remaster of the game in the first place.

    Tie in games made for Disney properties in the 8 and 16 bit era (megadrive/genesis Aladdin is best Aladdin). Absolutely see why they are bringing them back in various forms -- loads of top notch stuff from there.

    Almost anything newer, in fact maybe anything newer -- some of the PS1 stuff was playable enough I guess (see something like PS1 Toy Story) but never really better than the other offerings and certainly not the reference point for those styles of games. Why? Even the GBA and DS efforts were weak, certainly all those I ever saw from Nickelodeon (and I was manning the ROM release watcher for a while there). A few of the Disney ones were again kind of playable, especially from the GBA offerings after the DS had launched, but where something like Chip and Dale on the NES is unquestioned greatness to most they were all again just kind of playable.

    That said apparently there is a market for second hand N64 games so maybe I should not underestimate nostalgia for an age I never knew existed.
