Super Mario, Hello Kitty, and more have all invaded the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons but the latest mashup has truly become the crossover of the ages. While not an in-game event, a new Adult Swim video shows off how Rick and Morty would thrive in the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons as a special tribute to the Nintendo Switch exclusive.
The below video is in stop-motion animation style and was made in homage to the one-year anniversary of the latest Animal Crossing game. Was this video needed? Nah. Is it cool? You bet your stop-motion tooshie. You can check out the crossover for yourself below for your own celebration of the ACNH anniversary:
The above video shows off the chaotic duo doing usual the Animal Crossing shenanigans. Catching butterflies, fishing, digging for fossils; everything is just a little bit better when Rick and Morty is involved.
While this is nothing official in terms of a new gaming update, wouldn’t it be cool to see the Adult Swim show make its way into New Horizons as an actual in-game event? Just imagine if Nintendo went full-on Fortnite in terms of a surprising crossover, especially with a not-so-kid-friendly show like Rick and Morty. Pickle Rick costumes, mad scientist DIY recipes – the sky is the limit.
Talk about a shocker if this were ever to happen…
For now, however, the only Rick and Morty crossover we can enjoy is in the above Animal Crossing: New Horizons tribute video.
