Nintendo issues statement on Tomodochi Life controversy

0

'We are committed to fun and entertainment for everyone'

In case you hadn't heard, Nintendo's been in hot water lately with a lot of people for failing to include same-sex relationships in Tomodochi Life. After the mainstream media picked the story up, Nintendo of America released a statement to the Associated Press.

Nintendo's put out another comment today, this time on its official website. So, as to not mince words, here's the statement in full:

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.

There you have it -- essentially a "Sorry, but what's done is done. Maybe next time, guys!"

We are committed to fun and entertainment for everyone [Nintendo]
