Free Mobile Game SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off Gets A $30 Switch Port

SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off today made an unexpected jump to Nintendo Switch. However, unlike its free mobile and PC counterparts, you’ll need to drop $29.99 if you want to experience the burger-flipping action on Switch.

Last year, Krusty Cook-Off managed to walk away with the Google Play “Users Choice Game of 2020” award. The popular game saw over 17 million pre-registrations and garnered a daily player count of over 2.2 million during its first week on mobile. Now, Tilting Point is giving the game a premium makeover for its Switch debut.

“Redesigned for the platform, the Nintendo Switch system exclusive ‘Extra Krusty Edition,’ features platform exclusives, including four unique cooking powers, challenges, and additional downloadable content,” reads the announcement. Whether that warrants a price jump of $30 will depend on how much you love SpongeBob – although, launching on Switch with the exact same teaser trailer used in the free mobile version probably isn’t going to win over many fans.

“It has been great working alongside Nickelodeon, and our collaboration resulted in an incredibly successful mobile launch for SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off; we brought the game to PC players this past December, and now, we are thrilled to showcase the game’s potential and vibrant gameplay on the Nintendo Switch system,” said Tilting Point Co-CEO and president Samir Agili.

“SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off is the first game Tilting Point has published on Nintendo Switch; it is a testament to our vision and commitment to expand to new mediums, studios, and global audiences in order to help all our games grow. As a team, we are setting our sights toward what will be a truly huge and exciting year.”

SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off is now available on Switch for $29.99, although you’ll only find it in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. Tilting Point is hoping to bring the game to Europe and Asia in the coming weeks.

You can also pick up Krusty Cook-Off on iOS, Android, and PC for free.
