Animal Crossing’s Isabelle kicks demonic butt in this Doom 2 mod

Animal Crossing’s wholesome ladydog Isabelle has made the logical leap from Nintendo sim to the demon infested world of Doom 2.

Developed by modder It’s Me Veronica to run with GZDoom – a port which runs old school Doom titles on more recent hardware – this new mod turns Isabelle into an unkillable 2D companion sprite in Doom 2.

She comes in three flavours. The first is a passive mode which sees Isabelle simply follow you around the level that has her ignoring all enemies. You can also tell her to stay put on the fly. But on follow mode, if an enemy gets too close Isabelle will help attack it with a whack or with a confetti-based AOE attack.

As you can see in the video, Isabelle will also periodically throw you health pots in the style of Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite.

You can download this mod over at ModDB – but first, of course, you’ll need to set up GZdoom.

Check out our review of the newly released Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which received a perfect score. “Animal Crossing New Horizons is another Switch triumph that joins the console‚Äôs Mario and Zelda entries as an arguable series best,” writes our Alex, “and it does so with deceptively simple tweaks and upgrades.”
