It is the second SpongeBob game released on PlayStation, after Nicktoons Racing, which features SpongeBob, Patrick, and Plankton as playable characters. The PlayStation version of SuperSponge sold 1.06 million copies, becoming one of the console's best-selling games. The game was later reissued for the PlayStation as a Greatest Hits title.
The source code and most of the development assets for the PlayStation version were sold on two DVDs, and the contents were released on the Internet Archive in 2016. Early source code for the Game Boy Advance version was later found and released in 2019 as well.
