New special episode drops ahead of Season 5 debut
The next season of Rick and Morty arrives in late June on Adult Swim, but the network-within-a-network has gifted fans with a neat animated mini-episode to whet appetites until then. Titled “Rick and Morty in the Eternal Nightmare Machine” the ep “plays out” like a 16-bit video game platformer/brawler akin to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game. The pixelated visuals and framed animations of the characters certainly have a great feel to them, tapping into the nostalgia that the series is known for. The short aired on Adult Swim and can be found at the YouTube link above.
Though there have been a few Rick and Morty games out there, we’d enjoy having one like this that spans the bizarre worlds of the series. Rick and Morty returns June 20th on Adult Swim/Cartoon Network.
