‘Rick and Morty’ creator lives the joke, scalps the Nintendo 3DS
Remember that a weirdly specific joke of Rick and morty Where Rick sets up a lucrative ploy to buy limited edition Nintendo 3DS consoles in order to make them profitable?
Well this joke is based on Rick and morty the real life of creator Justin Roiland and he begins to sell his stock, starting with the one that contains his signature and a drawing of the titular characters of the series. It’s all up to you if you’re willing to deposit $ 1,000 for it on the Witschy website.

In case you don’t remember the joke from the show, here it is:
According to the description of the 3DS for sale – in particular, a limited edition in gold color Legend of Zelda: a link between worlds-theme Nintendo 3DS XL – this is one of the many consoles that Roiland bought from Walmart.
“Justin said he would provide some sort of certificate of authenticity, but who knows this guy is busy and the certificate might just be pulled on a domino napkin,” the description read.
Looks like it might not be true, but Vice confirmed to Witchsy that the 3DS had been purchased by Roiland, according to a text from Roiland.
“OK, so here’s what’s important about: 3DS systems,” Roiland wrote in a text message to Witchsy co-founder Kate Dwyer, Vice reported. “Everything Rick said in that scene of the episode was actually true. My plan was to sell them here and there over the years, but I had so many that I still have them. It’s also important to know that I felt bad after I bought them all, I went and bought 15 2DS systems and a bunch of games and gave them to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. I became part of the problem that day. became a scalper. CHA-CHING. “
Roiland is quite fond of Nintendo, so it makes sense that he would select a Nintendo console for his scalping plan. His games studio, Squanch Games, actually started out as Squanchtendo.
Roiland probably bought the 3DS consoles, of which there appear to be 10, in November 2013 when they first hit stores. It’s less than a month before the first episode of Rick and morty created and about a year and a half before Rick and morty refers to Roiland’s diagram in the episode “Total Rickall”.
Who knows when the next 3DS purchased by Roiland will go on sale. If this impacts fans like the whole Szechuan sauce fiasco did, those fans will be in high demand.
