Rick and Morty pays homage to Street Fighter with 'very realistic' game that requires players to find each other before fighting

A recent episode of the Rick and Morty cartoon series paid homage to the Street Fighter series by having the characters play "an intense and hyper-realistic game of Street Fighter." During this episode, Rick and Summer end up facing off against one another in a match of "Gettin' to a Street Fight" within this Street Fighter.

Rick appears to be playing as "Kickpuncher" โ€” a Shoto lookalike โ€” while Summer is using "Tubesteak" โ€” basically Blanka. However, the emphasis on "hyper-realistic" has apparently had a major impact on the gameplay of Street Fighter. Needless to say, even Morty was questioning if this was actually Street Fighter.

According to Rick and Summer, each match in this Street Fighter "start at the beginning of each fighter's day." From here, the players have to find each other to start the fight. This is apparently a "very realistic" take on how a match begins in the Street Fighter series.

Hilariously enough, there's apparently no guarantee that a fight will even happen. If the players are unable to find each other in time, then their fighters' meters will fill up. When this happens, the fighters will forget what made them so mad, ensuring that no fight occurs.

In a sense, this might actually be somewhat similar to Street Fighter 6's World Tour mode. A fight isn't going to happen unless you find your (computer-controlled) opponents in this single player mode.

At the title select screen, we can see the game modes of 1 player, 2 player, battle royale, meth mode, pants-free, and slappers only. Not really sure what those modes are all about, but "battle royale" sure does sound interesting with this gameplay style.
