Ahead of the new seasons launch the developers have been teasing a variety of crossovers on their official Twitter. One crossover that has caught many people’s attention is a Fortnite Rick and Morty crossover starring Butter Bot.
The teaser shown above featured the Butter Bot prominently displayed in the center of the screen. Besides the bot there is a glowing light and the Fortnite logo appears. The aesthetic of the tease fits into the theme of Season 7 which is alien abductions. More information on the season is expected when the new trailer drops tonight.
The Butter Bot first appeared in season one of Rick and Morty in the episode called “Something Ricked This Way Comes.” The bot is created by Rick to serve one purpose which is to pass butter. This sets up a funny look at the meaninglessness of existence.
While not a major character in the show, Butter Bot has received some fan love. Adult Swim has teamed up with robot company to manufacture real Butter Bots. These bots have a waitlist for now. Once purchased the robot will serve its sole purpose of bringing you butter.
