Nintendo has recently come under fire for not including same-sex relationships in its up coming game Tomodachi Life. Since the resent outcry Nintendo has apologized with the following statement
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.
I guess will have to wait and see if they will try to include same-sex relationships if they do decide to make another game in the series. Much like movies have become more scrutinized for not including a more accurate portrayal of everyday life, do you think video games should follow suit. Id like to hear what you think so leave a comment down below.
