The next game headed for Apple Arcade involves a certain pants-wearing sponge. A short preview video on Wednesday teased the upcoming Apple Arcade release of SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit.

Watch it now:

The teaser for the game was posted on the official Twitter feed for Apple Arcade.

This is a true teaser, with almost no details released. Today’s tweet says only “Secret Krabby Patty formula stolen. Friends kidnapped. On May 29, help SpongeBob run to the rescue in SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit.”

The video doesn’t show gameplay, just sets up the premise. Plankton has the Krabby Patty formula, while Patrick, Squidward, Sandy and Gary are locked in a cage. It’s up to SpongeBob to save the day.

SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit heads for Apple Arcade

When SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit debuts on Friday, it’ll only be available on Apple’s gaming service, which comes with a $4.99 a month subscription fee. But that fee also bring access to over 100 other games, all of which can be played on a variety of Apple devices.

This isn’t the first time Nickelodeon has teamed up with Apple Arcade. A game based on this network’s hit show Loud House debuted on the service in February.
