Nick Games from PS2 Era to be Re-Released

THQ Nordic is doing gamers a solid and plans to re-release some classic Nickelodeon games starting later this year!

Teaming up with Nickelodeon directly, the games are direct from your 90's and early 00's childhood. The games have not been announced, but the series affiliated with the titles have. Such as Spongebob Squarepants, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Invader Zim. THQ originally held the licenses for Nickelodeon games until their liquidation in 2013. Nordic Games purchased THQ in 2014. No details have been announced on which system these re-releases will appear.

Admittedly a lot of these games were passable. They weren't bad, but they weren't great either. But for kids in the PS2/XBox era, this is what they had to E-rated content. It worked. They were silly and full of the same wonder as the shows, even if they weren't amazing games. Seeing re-releases would introduce new, younger gamers to a generation of content they probably did not know existed. They are fun games, like the early Mario Party titles or the Rayman: Raving Rabbids games. Fun. Silly. And will entertain your friends for an hour with the crazy premises. That's all we really need in our Nickelodeon games.
