All Rick and Morty fans will definitely remember the joke when Rick bought limited edition Nintendo 3DS and planned a scheme to get some extra money. The creator of the cartoons, Justin Roiland, is committed to the joke, and has now decided to start selling his own stock of 3DS consoles.
The Rick and Morty creator is committed to his jokes
When a show reaches that level of popularity, its jokes become a landmark. Therefore, it’s no wonder their creators are decided to turn these jokes into reality. Just like Rick, Justin Roiland really has a stack of Nintendo 3DS consoles that he is planning to sell.
The first item he’ll make available will be exclusive, as it also features Roiland’s signature and a drawing of Rick and Morty. The limited edition Nintendo 3DS is colored in gold, and it features a special theme – Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It’s an XL model, and Roiland says he has purchased it from Walmart.
If this sounds appealing, you can find it on the Witschy website. However, you should get ready to spend $1,000 on it, as Roiland isn’t planning to decrease the price. The description of the limited edition Nintendo 3DS claims Roiland will also provide a certificate of authenticity. However, we’re not sure what to expect. The rest of the description sounds like this:
“(…) but who knows that dude is busy and certificate might just be drawn on a dominos napkin.”
Roiland bought the limited edition Nintendo 3DS consoles right before launching the show
However, there are other sources proving the console really belongs to the Rick and Morty creator. In a special interview, he explains how the entire scene in the show is based on his life. Roiland claims he bought all the limited edition Nintendo 3DS console with the intention of selling them.
Reportedly, there are 10 gaming systems that Roiland owns. He went and purchased them in 2013, soon after the console rolled out on the market. This happened shortly before the premiere of Rick and Morty, and about a year before the console joke made by Rick. Roiland didn’t reveal when the next console should be released, but we expect people to get excited about it.
