The company responds further in wake of their initial response.
Nintendo responded further today regarding the absence of same-sex marriages in Tomodachi Life.
"We apologize for disappointing many people by failing to include same-sex relationships in Tomodachi Life," the company stated on their website. They further explained that a patch to include same-sex marriages wasn't feasible.
They did, however, promise changes in further installments of the Tomodachi Life series, if such come out.
"We pledge that if we create a next installment in the Tomodachi series," they stated, "we will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players."
Nintendo has been criticized for its initial response to the Miiquality movement in social media sites, earlier citing that it did not intend to venture into social commentary with the games. Their earlier response fueled further controversy, not just from gamers themselves but from various organizations as well, including GLAAD.
