SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS Content Makes Its Way Into MADDEN NFL 21's The Yard

If nautical nonsense be something you wish then drop on in to Madden NFL 21's The Yard and experience the all-new SpongeBob SquarePants collaboration. The special event features new modes, challenges, and gear.

Earlier this week, Electronic Arts teased some sort of collaboration with Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants in Madden NFL 21. As expected, that collaboration is taking place within The Yard, the game's backyard-inspired 6v6 game mode. Heading into The Yard, players will discover all-new SpongeBob SquarePants-inspired content, including new game modes, a new location, and special cosmetic gear.

There are three new playable game modes that are cleverly inspired by SpongeBob. The Flying Dutchman's Ghostly Grab challenges players to make incredible catches and score long touchdowns to earn bonus points. Inspired by Sandy's crazy invention, Sandy's Rocket Arm allows players to launch passes that can travel 80 yards or further. Lastly, the Goo Lagoon Bowl puts goo all over the field causes players to move in slow motion.

In addition to these new modes, there is also a new playable location: SpongeBob Reef-Top. This doesn't actually take you under the sea, but it does feature a giant inflatable SpongeBob balloon flying above the field. Surrounding the field is SpongeBob's pineapple home and The Krusty Krab. The field is also appropriately themed. Completing challenges at SpongeBob Reef-Top will unlock exclusive SpongeBob-inspired gear themed after SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, Plankton, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs.

While Madden is primarily known as a simulation of the NFL, The Yard offers players more of an arcade-like experience. It also allows EA the opportunity to host these sorts of special events and sponsorships without ruining the traditional football gameplay experience. The Yard existing as a separate mode allows for this kind of silly collaboration.
