A bug makes gay marriage available in a Nintendo game

Tomodachi Collection gay marriage

Nintendo has recently released Tomodachi Collection for the 3DS. But it’s quite likely you’ve never heard about it before. In fact, Tomodachi Collection is some sort of life simulator using Miis, let’s say a mix between The Sims and Animal Crossing, never released outside the Japan.

The news is not in the release itself, but in the fact that japanese gamers started to post some images from the game (like from the mosaic above) rumoring about a bug of some sort that allows players to celebrate gay marriage (but just between two men).

This rumor is becoming quite a trend among japanese players, but Nintendo has not said anything yet about this bug, even if a player reported that, after contacting the customer service, they told him that the game seems to be broken, and it needs to be patched.

The awesome thing about all this is that new players are thinking about buying the game just because of this gay-friendly bug. Think about it Nintendo.

Our suggestion? Nintendo should patch it, in order to make it official and extend the feature to female characters as well!

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If anything, that patch should extend the feature to lesbian relationships.

      Exactly what we think. They just have to leave the so-called bug there, and add a female counterpart. That would be a wise choice from Nintendo, but we highly doubt it will ever happen.

The issue was (and still is) about the fact that the game allows players to perform gay marriage, a thing that wasn’t in Nintendo’s plans for sure. […]
