What does Animal Crossing: New Horizons have in common with DOOM Eternal?
Nothing, you’re probably guessing. Except that the two games share the same release date: March 20, 2020.
In a wholesome show of community spirit, members of each fandom have started making fanart celebrating their shared anticipation of the big day.
It all started with a Reddit post by u/Genkiz-_, who reached out to the Animal Crossing subreddit all the way from the Doom community and shared u/rakiat97‘s fan art of Doomguy showing off his phone to Animal Crossing’s Isabelle. Both exclaim “I’M A BIG FAN!” at each other.

- Coronavirus might result in a global Nintendo Switch shortage
Thus started the most unlikely crossover in video game history, as artists on both sides created their own Animal Crossing x Doom masterpieces.

With Animal Crossing New Horizons and Doom Eternal both coming out on the same day on March 20th, it's only natural I draw this crossover. Sorry.#AnimalCrossingNewHorizons #AnimalCrossing #DoomEternal #doom pic.twitter.com/yHNPCRIngd— Ry-Spirit (@RySpirit) February 19, 2020
After watching #nintendodirect i love how Isabelle is into "whisky" So i'd like to think that she drinks a lot to unwind and #doomguy would put a blanket around her so she won't catch a cold. Poor girl. #AnimalCrossingNewHorizons @animalcrossing @DOOM pic.twitter.com/ELWddLUUB7— Philtomato (@otagoth) February 20, 2020
