Nintendo To Fix Gay Marriage Glitch In Tomodachi Collection: New Life

tomodachi collection marriageNintendo of Japan are reportedly fixing an in-game glitch that occurs in the simulation title Tomodachi Collection: New Life. According to various users in Japan, the glitch is said to enable same-sex marriages to appear after transferring Miis to the 3DS by using the Mii transfer tool.

The recently released simulation game has never allowed same-sex marriages to occur, however the glitch is said to only effect the male gender, leaving females out of the loop. According to Kotaku, images were posted on Twitter by users detailing the gay marriages, with some choosing to go steady or bathe together.

The patch will be available in the near future and fixes the following after the same-sex marriage occurs:

  • Inability to boot up the game.
  • General errors.
  • Inability to save.
  • Received a notice on the Home menu’s notifications from a child sent on a journey, but no actual message is there.

    1. Because the glitch affects the game and the inability to save, they are sending a patch out to stop the same-sex marriages from happening, as it wasn’t intended to be in the game. Though some users are refusing to download the patch to show their support for same-sex marriages.

      3. Yeah, good point. But less than 10% of Americans will ever really know of this game anyway unless they’re a true Nintendo gamer or they live in Japan for whatever reason.
        Still. This is one of those things that could escalate into something problematic.

      4. Couldn’t agree more. Honestly… it’s no wonder I can’t take Christianity seriously. Christians are just so pathetic, looking for any possible reason to hate someone just because the bible apparently says they can! IT’S FUCKING PATHETIC! If anything, all these… so called Christians are going to go to Hell for being completely bigoted assholes… that is, if Hell actually exists. Who knows… maybe Hell was designed with those bigots in mind and all the gay people who these disgusting Christians claim will go to Hell, are just on their way to Heaven instead.

        Also… they claim that God hates gays… HOW THE FUCK DO THEY KNOW THAT?! Do they know God personally? Did God tell them, “oh, I hate those faggots! Spread the word, my puppets.” No? Oh… then what’s with the random, “God hates fags!” bullshit that people keep spewing? It’s just random fucking nonsense that unintelligible Christians made up just to make themselves seem superior in some way!

        If you are doing ALL these things, then you can play the god-of-leviticus card.

Abnormal and immoral practices, whether by heterosexuals or homosexuals, do not present a reason for the denial of civil rights to those who act in those ways.”

        http://www.cpjustice.org/content/homosexuality

        “[…] social science has shown that the concerns often raised about children of lesbian and gay parents—concerns that are generally grounded in prejudice against and stereotypes about gay people—are unfounded. Overall, the research indicates that the children of lesbian and gay parents do not differ markedly from the children of heterosexual parents in their development,adjustment, or overall well-being.”

        Now that i have posted some sources so you can read and learn, here’s another tid bit of information: the bible actually is not against homosexual relations. There are 2 passages that even discuss homosexuality and that is the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, and Leviticus, and the rest is outright speculation. Now if you actually know how to distinguish themes in writing you would realize that Sodom and Gomorrah is about hospitality, not condemning gays, and Leviticus is thrown out entirely, since it also discourages eating seafood and wearing clothing of more than one fabric. Another funny thing about The Bible is how old it is and how it still finds it completely okay to stone your wife or sell your daughter into slavery. I think its time to throw this bigotry away and stop soiling the “peace loving God” that you revere since if he truly loved man, he would not discriminate against his own children.Seems I know more about your Bible than you do, and I’m an atheist.

      22. I feel obliged to anonymously apologize for this Christian’s wording, as I am a Christian who does not believe in gay marriage. This was not worded optimally, and iceazeama’s was just embarassing (same with Croxynd’s). Not all of us are judgmental, and I think the best thing to do is accept gay people and be nice to them, not judge them, as all sin is the same in God’s eyes, and we are as guilty as them when compared to perfection. He is right, though, it doesn’t matter what year it is. Someday, maybe we will look back on the current day, and view it as we view the Jim Crow laws and that era now. But they are not the same. And regardless of your religious beliefs, not only is same sex marriage not normal, but no matter how much you support gay marriage, you ARE prejudiced against gay people. Regardless of how much you support them, if your long time best friend told you he was gay and had feelings for you, you would never look at him the same way. I try to treat gay people equally, and not discriminate, because judging them is not the solution. But the bottom line is gay marriage is not normal, and the media (game devs included) should not be looked down upon for not including it in their game (and just to clear something up, I do own and enjoy many games that include same sex marriage, it in no way lowers my enjoyance of the game).

You can choose to deny the existence of God but creation speaks for itself. Just want to let you know, your not an animal like that thought u in school, the God who made you is a Holy Righteous God, and the order of creation gives us a glimpse of his Character. God is good, we are corrupted by sin, that’s why the world is sick with evil. God has declared homosexuality along with everyone’s sin, an abomination. Your argument against that rule is with your maker. But yea, I know you may not believe, but as long as you heard the truth, you have something to think about. Your entitled to your freedom. But God is still Soverign and everything people do will be held accountable. We have an inert understanding of right and wrong, thou we choose to deny it. If there’s no God, why have any rules at all, who made anyone judge and master? Why not just mistreat people and live like pure monsters? Because there’s deep down inside we have a God given knowledge of good and evil. God is the one who establishes rules for his creatures, to keep order and justice and he also places kings, governements and authorities on earth. He is Soverign over all.

Now in order for society to continue, we obviously decided it was social normality not to kill each other, it’s a bit of a no-win scenario. And you know, just perhaps I go about my day not killing people, not stealing from people, not coveting my neighbors wife and so on, all without the threat of a god above me. Just because I find it more productive to be a good person. If I’m a good person people are good to me, so I spread love, and not hatred of people that I don’t understand or fear. I believe that when you die you die, that’s it, just one existence and then nothingness. But you know what? That thought makes me enjoy each day. It doesn’t make me cry in fear that I have no flying spaghetti monster to visit after I die or make me go crazy and stab people.

  2. I think Nintendo should patch this by fully implementing marriage between two male characters or two female characters into the game. Unfortunately, they probably won’t do this and will also probably remove the ability to marry a same-sex character. If they end up “banning” it, it’ll be a huge step back for Nintendo, in my opinion.

    1. Well the problem it’s not a homosexual issue or intentional diss. What happened was they created a game without same-sex marriages, which is nothing new and isn’t a big deal, but then due to a bug people married male+male characters. I recognize that a wider variety of options are desirable in games, but it’s the same as a game featuring a male lead vs a female lead, it doesn’t make the game sexist or homophobic.

      BUT, by using the bug like this, it created more bugs and just made the entire game unplayable, in some cases not even boot up. It is very easy to patch this bug to make the game playable again by removing the same sex marriage, but it would be much more difficult in my opinion to try to stabilize this bug and open it up to females as well without a complete product recall.

In games where the idea is to immerse yourself and make yourself the lead, then yes, a lot of customization is needed. But if you are for example we’ll pick a recent char, Booker De Witt. If you are playing as Booker De Witt I want to play the story that was written for him, a presumably straight male. What you loose in customization, you gain in character development.

        Knock knock.
        Who’s there?
        Luigi.
        Luigi who?
        Story of my life…

      2. you can say it’s “not true” all you want, but at the end of the day you are deciding what parts of the Bible matter and don’t. If you think the Bible is the reason homosexuality is bad, then you CANNOT remove away the copious other commandments that are ignored from the bible without hypocrisy.
        Life becomes much easier when you decide what’s right and wrong based on how it affects you and others, rather than trying to obey an arbitrary book.

      3. I don’t obey a book. I do not worship a book. I worship a perfect God, and I know for myself what’s right and wrong from my own experience in my life. Things of the Bible have been taken out. Truths. I’m sorry that I’m not the ordinary bigot Christian that you’re wanting to argue with now. How about this though?: the internet is no place to talk about this. We have never met eachother, we don’t know what type of people we actually are. I’m sure you’re friends with Christians as I’m friends with Atheists, but they’re all good people. At the end of the day, the Atheist man who saved someones life is going to be more blessed than the Christian who murdered. The man who was homosexual and changed a life is going to be more blessed than the Christian who did nothing but hate.

        If you believe in diluted pop cultural Christianity without any regards to spirituality, then no.

      6. what? i said nothing about christians. I have many freinds from all religions who are in support of same sex marriage because they realize how stupid opposing it is. And get over what? I do not care that you choose not to have sex before marriage as that is your own choice. In my opinion: the bible contradicts itself; promotes horrific things like slavery; states that we decended from adam and eve so therefore incest; talking snake; gay sex is wrong. And i want to elaborate on that last point. because it’s just about sex. Also even if what ever religious scripture specifically says gay is sin or gay sex is sin, can i ask, why? Because god says so? i mean even without a religious compass we can tell that murder, slavery etc is morally wrong. Because it’s horrible and hurtfull. gay…doesn’t hurt anyone or anything.

      8. “Respect people with different beliefs” is not the same as supporting hate speech.

        I guess we should support rape and murder, since people too sometimes tolerate those.

      9. I’m pretty much over this crap. I’m done arguing to people over the internet about religion. It’s pointless. I thought at first being respectful, I would get respect from others but now I see this isn’t true. Obviously in your stance, if someone was a good person who loved everyone but was still against gay marriage being legalized they’re suddenly Hitler. I’m not even talking about myself either because I believe gay marriage should be legalized, I just don’t believe having intercourse with the same sex is right. I’m a believer that we should come to respect all religions. I respect Atheist just the same, but I do not respect those pretentious bigots of any religion that think they have all the answers and believe they’re smarter than a person with or without faith or have different beliefs.

        Here let me start another argument so we can blot this one out: “Video games are evil and they make people shoot people and create terrorism and anyone who plays them will undoubtedly shoot other people with guns.”
        This probably won’t work, but I thought I’d give it a try!

  11. Well, its a glitch that causes the game to become broken & unstable, so of course they’re gonna fix it.
    If it didn’t cause any negative effects, they probably wouldn’t have bothered with it.
    The fact that they’re fixing this glitch has nothing to do with Nintendo’s view on Homosexual relationships, Stop over exaggerating everything.
    Now if they intentionally built the game to support gay marriage & then Patched it out for whatever reason, then that would open room for discussion.

  13. Being gay is perfectly fine and anyone who says otherwise is a complete fucking moron. I thought we lived in the year 2013. Yet, we still have morons who believe that being gay is wrong? Let me tell you something… God didn’t actually write the bible, contrary to moronic belief. Nor does the bible say ANYTHING about it being wrong to be gay! You’re just making shit up so that you can justify your bigotry in any way you possibly can! There is nothing that pisses me off more than fucking BIGOTRY, YOU INTOLERABLE FUCK HEADS!

    And yes, it’s understandable that Nintendo wants to fix a glitch that makes it impossible to save and whatnot, but couldn’t they go a different route? Keep the ability to marry the same sex and fix the glitch some other way.

        So… apparently it’s okay to get drunk and fuck your own (underaged?) daughters, making them pregnant… yet, it’s not okay for two men/women to sleep with one another. I hate the bible…

    1. Well, that’s just what happens when it comes to the possibility of a character being gay. Know what happened with Mass Effect 3 when it was first released and it was possible for Bro Shep to be gay? People bitched and bitched and BITCHED about how wrong it was. Despite the fact that Fem Shep could be gay in all THREE OF THE FUCKING GAMES! Whenever it comes to homosexuality, rather it be in movies, video games, or fucking real life, people are always going to be there to bitch about it and claim that God hates gays. Hell, an entire group exists just to remind us how “immoral” it apparently is and how much God apparently hates it. Do they even fucking know God? No? So… how the fuck can they know rather or not he hates Gays? They can’t! So, really, they need to shut up about it and stop trying to bring up religion when it comes to someone being gay. They deserve the right to be gay (even if it is virtual people) without being judged for it. Wasn’t it stated in the bible that… you know… all me are created equal? That also means people who are gay! Gotta love the people who completely follow the words of the bible… not. I mean… it only said that all men are created equal so let’s fucking make slaves out of everyone who’s not white and constantly bash any gay guys! Yep… contradicting the fucking bible! Way to go.

      This is why I think religion is complete bullshit.

    If you work on the Sabbath we should execute you Exodus 35:2-3

    If you beat your slave and he lives, it’s okay Exodus 21:20-21

    If you make a promise to god don’t back out, even if it means killing your own daughter Judges 11:29-40 (Odd how god didn’t let that father out of his promise like Abraham)

    If you rape someone just pay her father and marry her Deuteronomy 22:28-29

    Handicapped people aren’t getting into heaven Deuteronomy 23:2

    2. Are you a straight-up moron who doesn’t even take time to read but just blurts out whatever is in his mouth? Why don’t you read those verses and the context you referenced you brainless arrogant generation. Much of the Old Testament refers to the Jews and how God brought the Messiah Jesus Christ from out of their nation. The New Testament testifies of salvation being revealed as God’s way to redeem fallen man. It sounds like you people just spout out whatever is on your mind or what you’ve heard rather than study for yourself what the Bible is saying. Don’t be a moron and just take others’ word for it. Man up and study for yourself.

      1- No, responding to opression and disregard of human rights is not “bigotry”. Actually opressing human beings like you do is bigotry, asshole

      2- The Bible does not condemn homosexuality. Bother to learn greek and hebrew.

      3- No, preaching is not “showing people God’s love”, it’s shoving your personal beliefs down other people’s throats. Quit being a narcissist, you disgusting sociopath.
