Rick and Morty in Animal Crossing

Rick can be seen teleporting his grandson Morty and himself into a world that resembles that of Animal Crossing. Initially, the pair occupy themselves with catching bugs, building tents, crossing lakes, and fishing as they traverse the pixelated world. However, it would not be a Rick and Morty-themed video if Rick did not come up with some kind of alien invention.


Later in the video, we even see Rick use a Kalaxian crystal to power a full-fledged mech-suit. These crystals were first introduced in the episode “Ricksy Business”. Rick goes on to use the suit to wreak havoc across the world and torment, Morty, with a swarm of bees.

This 2-minute video is not indicative of Rick and Morty actually being introduced into Animal Crossing. Similar to most other Adult Swim videos, it is meant to poke fun at the game by showing how chaotic an island run by Rick and Morty would be.

With regard to collaborations, New Horizons will team up with Sanrio later this month. “Starting March 26, the Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack will be available for purchase at Target stores across the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $5.99.
