We might still be waiting on a release date for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake (it's currently expected to launch in 2023), but we do at least have details of the game's 'BFF Edition' which is available to pre-order as we speak.

For the low, low sum of $249.99, you can get your hands on a very special release that includes the game, a Costume Pack DLC, a 25cm Cosmic Victory Statue, four placemats, four mini bouncing balls, a BFF amulet necklace, and a 50cm Inflatable Patrick. We know which item's grabbed our attention.

The special edition has appeared on Amazon for anyone wanting to secure a pre-order, albeit with a placeholder release date.

A listing has also appeared on Amazon UK, but it's "temporarily out of stock".

Thankfully, for those of us unable to persuade our significant others that an inflatable Patrick is indeed worth sacrificing next month's groceries for, the standard edition of the game is also available to order.

If you haven't seen it yet, make sure to check out last month's gameplay footage of The Cosmic Shake, and let us know if you'll be ordering a copy with an inflatable comment below.
