Nintendo Says No to Gay Weddings in Upcoming Game

May 08, 2014

In Nintendo’s new social simulation game Tomodachi Life, you can do just about anything... but if you’re gay, you can’t get married.

The most recent simulation game from Nintendo allows users the chance to participate in all kinds of activities, from watching the sunset, to raising a baby, but one gamer pushed back on the opposite-sex limitations in the game by launching a social media campaign to persuade the company to change its mind.

Nintendo responded by saying it "never intended to make any form of social commentary," but the statement has done nothing to quell the growing backlash from users.
