Rick and Morty season four is arriving later this year, much to the delight of its dedicated fans.
Season three’s cliffhanger left viewers a little worried the regular space adventures shared between Rick and Morty (both played by Justin Roiland) would not continue.
However, fans’ worries can now be quelled, as an extremely cryptic video was recently posted on the Adult Swim YouTube channel.
The feature – titled Rick and Morty: Pixelated – showcases a number of extremely strange scenes drawn out in pixels.
Reminiscent of video games such as Metal Slug, the video shows Rick and Morty teaming up with a number of side characters to run through a number of levels shooting bad guys.
Created by Paul Robertson, the video seems to simply showcase the talents of the artist – but could there be a slight hint in its appearance on the channel?
Most of the characters featured in the video have been pulled straight from season two episode four Total Rickall.
In the episode, a huge amount of alien parasites take over Rick’s house, making him and his family see them as friendly cartoon characters.
These fan-favourite characters were then included in the recent video, prompting the suspicion.
Featured in the video was: Photography Raptor, Sleepy Gary, Ghost in a Jar, Duck With Muscles, and many more.
Total Rickall is perhaps one of the most popular episodes of Rick and Morty – could this video be proof that the show will be diving into the alien parasite storyline once more?
If this video is anything to go by, it looks like Rick and Morty are going to be up against an entire horde of alien parasites attempting to take over Earth once again.
And there will surely be a number of hilarious situations stemming from their arrival once again.
The cartoon duo announced their return earlier this month in a video on Adult Swim’s Twitter account.
In the video, Rick nervously said: “We’ve got a big announcement to make!”
Prompted to reveal the news, Morty replied: “I don’t wanna make the announcement.”
To which Rick began: “Okay I’ll do it: Everybody Rick and Morty is back – brand new season four, November 2019.
“This year! We’re going to do it this year, 2019”
Morty added: “I cant believe we’re back in 2019 of November!”
Rick and Morty seasons 1-3 are available on Netflix.
