Community Is Going 8-Bit for a Video Game Episode

Tomorrow night, Community wraps up its third season with three episodes spread out over two hours—the 30 Rock finale is sandwiched in between two of them for some reason, but this is NBC, so it's best not to ask questions about.

The first of those three episodes is called "Digital Estate Planning," and now that we have the following images from it, the title makes a lot more sense. Ladies and gentlemen, the study group is going 8-bit. Apparently the storyline goes something like this: A business partner (played by Giancarlo Esposito) of Pierce's late father is battling Pierce for Pierce's inheritance, and the group has to beat the guy in a video game to get it. Ummm, what?

(The images were first released to The Hollywood Reporter and The A.V. Club.)

This could be the nerdiest episode yet! Who do you think got the best video game treatment? My vote is for Jeff, because he looks a bit like Mega Man.

P.S. There better be an up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-B-A-select-start joke.
