One tweet. Five words. “Pocket Mortys. Mobile. January 14th.”. That’s how the news broke about Adult Swim‘s new Pokemon-style game featuring the titular characters from Rick and Morty. For anyone planning on grabbing the free mobile game for iOSand Android devices, get set for what will surely be a sci-fi infused, foul language filled romp as Rick, who must battle with and collect different Mortys from across the multiverse.The game’s voice work will be handled by the show’s co-creator Dan Harmon, while fellow co-creator and avid gaming enthusiast Justin Roiland is currently working on his own unrelated mobile game for the HTC Vive.Senior producer Chris Johnson promises that this game will be their most substantial, as compared to Rick and Morty’s Rushed Licensed Adventure; the browser game that the company launched along with a Rick and Morty Instagram last July.
“After having been missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez suddenly arrives at daughter Beth’s doorstep to move in with her and her family. Although Beth welcomes Rick into her home, her husband, Jerry, isn’t as happy about the family reunion. Jerry is concerned about Rick, a sociopathic scientist, using the garage as his personal laboratory. In the lab, Rick works on a number of sci-fi gadgets, some of which could be considered dangerous. But that’s not all Rick does that concerns Jerry. He also goes on adventures across the universe that often involve his grandchildren, Morty and Summer.”
