Rick and Morty Co-creator Sells Legend of Zelda Nintendo 3DS for $1K
  • The Truth Behind Rick and Morty $1K Legend of Zelda 3DS Sale

The truth behind the sale of Rick and Morty special Legend of Zelda 3DS sale on Witchsy seeks origins from an episode of the show Rick and Morty co-creator makes good on season 2 joke by selling $1K Legend of Zelda 3DS

True Rick and Morty fans will remember episode four from season 2 in which Rick is infested with a parasite. His affliction gives him a get-rich scheme which entails that he will buy marked-down limited-edition Zelda Nintendo DS's and then sell them later at a hugely inflated price.

He explains his scheme to the Smiths and rushes out and by the end, he pops back and asks Nintendo to give him free stuff.

While many may not remember that episode but fans were glad to see that a Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds special edition 3DS XL with Rick and Morty illustration on top is on sale on Witchsy.

One of the founders of Witchsy, Justin Roiland is selling the product for $1,000. Intrigued that why would anyone want to buy a $200 handheld console for highly inflated price? There’s a whole story to it.

According to Roiland, who was also a writer on Rick and Morty, the scheme Rick launches has autobiographical elements to it. In a text message to Witchsy co-founder Kate Dwyer, Roiland explained everything.

He wrote, “"OK, so here’s what’s important re: the 3DS systems." All the stuff Rick says in that scene in the episode was actually true. My plan was to sell them off here and there over the years but I just had so many that I still have them. It’s also important to know that I felt bad after I bought them all so I went and purchased 15 2DS systems and a bunch of games and donated them to the children’s hospital of Los Angeles. I became part of the problem that day. I became a scalper. CHA-CHING."

While the scheme may or may not work remains to be seen. It is interesting to see however whether Rick and Morty fans will make haste to buy the over-priced console just because it was referred to in the show.
