DOOMGUY and Isabelle

People have been making jokes about the wholesome pairing of Doomguy (from DOOM) and Isabelle (from Animal Crossing) since the meme started, and after ringing in the new year in January together, they're finally confirmed to be in the same game.

Sure, the game is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a game that's all about punching each other to death, but sometimes the best friendships are forged in fire, you know?

DOOM's reaction to the news is understated:

...but what we really want to know is how Isabelle feels about this. As the person/dog running the Animal Crossing account, she's mostly been covering updates and Halloween stuff, and has yet to acknowledge the friendship between her and Doomguy.

It's okay, Isabelle — we know that you can't tweet private stuff on your work account.
