That’s right, keep the fan art coming! IGN executive editor Miranda Sanchez interviewed the director and producer of Animal Crossing: New Horizons secured this eternally wonderful scoop. Director Aya Kyogoku and producer Hisashi Nogami are both enjoying the shenanigans and wholesome memes between the bloody slayer Doomguy and the ever helpful Isabelle. 

From IGN’s article:

“I definitely do notice and have noticed that there’s a lot of Doom and Animal Crossing collaboration art and illustrations that are being posted, and as I look through them I’m in awe of how much creativity our fans have[.] I think because there is a common denominator of this type of communication happening between Doom and Animal Crossing fans, and also the fact that Animal Crossing is a communication game, we’re very thankful and very thrilled to see all this[.] We’re so excited at the same time to see how the two [fandoms] are coming together to celebrate this day[,]” [Kyogoku said.]

“So Animal Crossing and Doom — obviously the game genres are completely different. We definitely do have something in common, and that is that they’re both video games, and come from that same subculture so to speak. It’s so great to see that these two different [fandoms] are coming together and hyping up the gaming [community] and gaming culture itself. It really is a great thing to see,” Nogami said.

Earlier this year we also saw the Doom Twitter account join in on the fun in a couple of tweets, so there’s love on both sides of these March 20th releases.



Now imagine if Doomguy does make it into the next round of DLC fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We’ll have another avenue of making more mashups!
