Nintendo releases statement regarding same-sex relationships in Tomodachi life

On May 9, 2014 by Aaron Meehan

Nintendo has today released a statement regarding Miiquality’s campaign to have the company include same-sex relationships in their upcoming 3DS life sim, Tomodachi Life.

The statement, which you can read below, explains why the game will not be able to feature same-sex relationships, but it does state any future Tomodachi games will like feature same-sex relationships.

Nintendo’s statement is as follows:

We apologize for disappointing many people by failing to include same-sex relationships in Tomodachi Life. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to change this game’s design, and such a significant development change can’t be accomplished with a post-ship patch. At Nintendo, dedication has always meant going beyond the games to promote a sense of community, and to share a spirit of fun and joy. We are committed to advancing our longtime company values of fun and entertainment for everyone. We pledge that if we create a next installment in the Tomodachi series, we will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players.
