Back in 2020, the identical release dates for Animal Crossing: New Horizons and DOOM Eternal led to fans mashing-up the two franchises with fun fan-art of Animal Crossing‘s Isabelle befriending the violent Doom Slayer. While the two characters have yet to officially cross paths in a videogame, it looks like their friendship won’t be so easily forgotten in the upcoming year ahead!
To celebrate New Year’s Day 2021, the official DOOM Twitter has posted a fun photo of Isabelle and the Doom Slayer walking hand-in-hand. Figure collectors will recognize these two as the Nendoroid figurines from Good Smile Company – which is as close as both characters will get to meeting each other in the real world!
Here it is below:

Currently, fans are still hoping to see the Doom Slayer to join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC character – which would finally tie him and Isabelle together in an official videogame. We’ll just have to see if their wishes come true this year!
