It would be interesting to see if the friendship between Doom Slayer and Isabelle was ever recognized within an actual game. While he’d be pretty silly in DOOM or Animal Crossing, there’s one place he could succeed: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Doom Slayer has been rumored for a long time, And it looks more likely after Microsoft buys Bethesda. The publisher already has two fighters in the game, and companies like Capcom, Konami, and Square Enix have three actors, so it wouldn’t be out of the question. With Isabelle being a playable character in Final, It’s not hard to imagine how much fans would want to see the pair actually come together!
For now, the friendship between Isabelle and Doom Slayer should simply continue through these small confessions between the two companies, and through the fan art that made it a thing in the first place. There is something to be said about the way fans made this link between the two franchises, and how it went from a simple joke nearly a year ago, to a frequent contact between the two companies. Even if nothing came of it, it’s nice to see the effect fans can have on the games!
