Rick and Morty is now working its way through the sixth season of the series, and the first look at the next episode of the series has revealed the series' hilarious take on the long running Street Fighter franchise! Rick and Morty has changed quite a bit about the series following the first new episode of the season offered some huge reveals about the series' lore, and raised even more questions for the future. But at the same time, the newest episode of the season also had a fun return to its more lighter affairs. There's still plenty of room for pop culture parodies moving forward.
We're far from done with the pop culture parodies in Rick and Morty's new season as it's really just getting started. In fact, the trailer for the next episode of the season is teasing that we'll see the series' take on Capcom's Street Fighter fighting game franchise dubbed "Gettin To A Street Fight." Complete with parodical versions of classic fighters Ryu and Blanka, the real twist in the game comes from the fact that apparently players actually play through a regular day in their characters' lives without actually fighting. Check it out below as spotted by @Swimpedia on Twitter:
Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 3 is titled "Bethic Twinstinct" and is currently scheduled to premiere on Sunday, September 18th at 11:00PMEST on Adult Swim. It's hard to gauge from the first promo from the episode whether or not we'll get to see even more of this Street Fighter parody in action. The series' past has proven that this could either be the focus for the entire episode with tons of twists inserted throughout, or it could just be the opening gag to the main story coming later.
Rick and Morty Season 6 has also dropped some pretty big story details that fans want to see explored further, so we could end up getting more of that instead. After the latest episode spent its entire run inside of the Roy: A Life Well Lived video game, it might be a while before we get to see another extended parody of its kind. But what do you hope to see from Rick and Morty's take on Street Fighter? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
