The upcoming PowerWash Simulator DLC has been announced, and it’s going in an even stranger direction than before, as players will be able to visit Bikini Bottom from Spongebob SquarePants and give it a good clean. Unlike the previous PowerWash Simulator DLC packs, the Spongebob SquarePants contents will be paid, so you’ll have to fork out cash for the privilege of scrubbing Bikini Bottom.
PowerWash Simulator has had one of the strangest track records regarding DLC. The first free content for the game added Croft Manor from the Tomb Raider series, letting players discover all kinds of artifacts from Lara Croft’s adventures. The next DLC was even more surprising, as the PowerWash Simulator x Final Fantasy VII Remake crossover lets you visit locations in Midgar and scrub the filth from iconic FF7 bosses.
