Isabelle joins Doomguy in a heavily modded version of Doom 2 thanks to a new mod that adds the Animal Crossing character as a companion.

p>Over the past few days, players have been thoroughly enjoying both the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons as well as Doom: Eternal, both of which released on the same day and give drastically different gameplay on multiple different consoles. While many fans and artists have been creating crossovers for the two games recently, one fan has gone above and beyond traditional art and brought the two games together in retro style.

Modder and YouTuber, It's Me Veronica, has created a special mod for Doom that brings Animal Crossing's iconic Isabelle into the bloody hellscape from the classic shooter series. Like most mods, this is only available on PC, even though the classic Doom and Doom 2 are available in Doom Eternal, only sadly without the small cartoon dog.

The new mod is specifically made for GZDoom, a modded version of the classic Doom created with an open source that is built to be more easily modded by anyone looking to add their own flair to the game. What's best about Isabelle's newest appearance in Doom 2 is that the mod introduces her as a companion as opposed to being a simple skin swap for an already roaming enemy. As a companion, Isabelle puts her skills from Super Smash Bros. to good use by helping the player kill enemies with Animal Crossing inspired attacks and even throwing out healing items for the player to pick up as they progress through a level.

It's Me Veronica comments in the video that shows off this new mod that she would have liked to add more animations and abilities to the mod. That being said, the companion is fairly extensive, and fleshes out Isabelle's role as Doomguy's helper as he uses weapons from the Doom franchise, Duke Nukem, and Wolfenstein to rip and tear through demons. Included with the Isabelle companion mod is a secondary mod that adds the character to Minecraft, for anyone who wants a blond dog in a green checkered shirt to follow them around in that somewhat more peaceful world.

So far, it doesn't look like anyone has figured out how to get Isabelle into Doom Eternal yet, even if players can play as the original Doomguy. However, for fans who still love jumping into the classic versions of the series, Isabelle makes for a perfect companion to keep an air of levity in the otherwise dark game. Additionally, It's Me Veronica has more companions already created that players can pull into the world of Doom alongside the Animal Crossing icon.

Doom: Eternal is available now for PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.

Animal Crossing: New Horizon is available now for Switch.
