Nintendo is going to fix the “gay marriage” bug in Tomodachi Collection: New Life

Tomodachi Collection: New Life

Last week we told you about the unexpected bug found by some Japanese players in the latest 3DS life-simulation Tomodachi Collection: New Life by Nintendo. 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.

But disregarding all the requests asking the “feature” to stay, and a push up in sales (as a lot of player started buying the game JUST for that bug), Nintendo, in a official press release, stated that an update for the title is coming and the patch will fix the following issues:

• The inability to boot up the game

• Error messages

• Human relations that become strange

• The inability to save

Yes, you head it right…”Human relations that become strange”, that’s the definition of gay marriage! Anyway, if any of you is playing the game (and maybe enjoying the feature), you probably should not download the update.

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!
