Adult Swim has shared a lengthy trailer to support the upcoming season of Rick and Morty.
The 17-minute visual can be considered as a short and is entitled Rick and Morty in the Eternal Nightmare Machine. Paul Robertson returned to animate and design the cast as 8-bit video game characters, starting off the video in the Smith home as they have a peaceful meal. Jerry, Beth, and Summer glitch and transform into monsters, and while Grandpa Rick is able to blast them into pieces, he and Morty are brought to another dimension that forces them to fight beings we’ve seen in the previous seasons.
Rick and Morty in the Eternal Nightmare Machine follow in the footsteps of previous Rick and Morty animated shorts like Samurai & Shogun by Kaichi Sato and Rick & Morty vs. Genocider from Takashi Sano, both of which put new spins on the hit Adult Swim series.
The Eternal Nightmare Machine is a multiple-level side-scrolling 16-bit action-platforming almost episode of Rick and Morty produced by the brilliant Paul Robertson. In what was really a build-up to a night that would debut a second trailer for Rick and Morty season five. That said, the Robertson quarter-hour is actually quite a lot of fun. Fans of throwback Mega Man games will sympathize with the frustrating level designs depicted that probably killed more controllers than your younger siblings. Frenetic action is laden throughout and fans of the Adult Swim franchise will bathe in the cameos for the next few days in excitement. You can watch that below as well.
