Animal Crossing Devs Are Loving The DOOM Crossover Fan Art
The day has finally arrived, not only for Animal Crossing: New Horizons players to go in debt on an island getaway adventure, but also for DOOM Eternal players to rip and tear through every demon imaginable. That said, the crossover fan art has been very real for some time, and the Animal Crossing devs are loving it.
During a recent interview with IGN (via Prima Games), Animal Crossing: New Horizons director Aya Kyogoku and producer Hisashi Nogami discussed the interesting friendship between the almighty Doomguy and Isabelle. “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,” Kyogoku said.

“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,” Kyogoku added. “We’re so excited at the same time to see how the two [fandoms] are coming together to celebrate this day.”
Nogami went on to say, “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.”
