Rick & Morty Crossover Unlikely in Trover Saves the Universe | Gaming News
Don’t expect to see any green portals in Trover’s universe.
It seems like we won’t be seeing any portals, Meeseeks or cameos from Rick and Morty themselves during Trover Saves the Universe. In an interview at PAX West, Justin Roiland (creator of both Trover and the popular sci-fi show) told Tech that the new PS4/PSVR game is “it’s own thing.”
That’s not to say that there isn’t a connection between the two, however. One of Rick & Morty’s key plot points is that there are infinite universes and realities, and Roiland acknowledges that. “We’ve seen Rick & Morty find themselves on a planet [with] chairs that are the sentient dominant species… Which is f**king crazy,” he says. “So, I mean, to that level of absurdity and [with] infinite realities, it’s completely feasible that all of this stuff could be happening in the same universe. But there hasn’t been any thought about, like, direct crossover or any of that kind of stuff.”
Some fans of the show may recognizeRoiland’s unique vocal stylings for several characters throughout the game – though he says this isn’t specifically a nod to R&M. “Obviously Trover sounds a lot like Morty,” he explains with a laugh. “That’s my inadequacy as a voice actor and my limited range more than anything else.”
JR is an editor at Tech who would really like to check out the multiverse someday. For now, he’ll have to settle for the endless void of Twitter.
