thq nordic showcase

THQ Nordic are going big in the coming years, and just as they celebrate their 10th anniversary with a bit of a digital showcase, they’ve found it within themselves to unveil no less than 6 new games – and there’s some Destroy All Humans!, Outcast and SpongeBob action included.

We think it’s probably best if you take in the full showcase for yourself and you’ll find the half hour long celebration right below all these words. Yet if you do take it in, you’ll be found enjoying a host of gaming goodies including Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake, Outcast 2 – A New Beginning, Jagged Alliance 3, Superpower 3, MX vs. ATV: Legends, ELEX II and Expeditions: Rome action.

Blurbs and descriptions of what you’ll find for each as follows:
