    Nintendo's new game, Fire Emblem Fates (known as Fire Emblem If in Japan) will introduce same-sex marriage to the popular series, Nintendo confirmed today.

    In Fire Emblem Awakening, players could marry a character of the opposite sex if their battle ranks became high enough, and they could eventually produce children. This is basically the same system, except, y'know, no children.

    To sum it up, the Conquest edition of the game has a male character whom a male player can marry, and the Birthright edition has a female character whom a female player can marry. A third edition of the game, which Nintendo has kept quiet about (though it is rumored to be paid DLC), will include both the male and female main characters in question.

    To clarify, opposite-sex marriage still exists in the game with other characters; Nintendo is just opening up the possibility for same-sex marriage with specific characters.

    What do you think about this? Obviously this is Nintendo's way of "making it up" to LGBT communities after same-sex marriages were not allowed in Tomodachi Life. I personally see no problem with it. I feel the player should be able to make these kinds of choices without being restricted by the game.

    No straight marriage unless you buy the 3rd version of the game wtf? Nintendo you just lost a sale! I refuse to buy any game that forces that type of stuff on people.

    Wonderful! It's nice to see Nintendo finally stepping out of their comfort zone to support something relatively controversial.

    I'm very happy to see the medium continue to be accepted in more and more games as of late, I really hope the trend continues to other platforms of games.

    Will the next game allow polygamy then? That's all I want in a game, I want to create my own harem. ='(
    How come there are so many few games where I can make my very own harem? Dx

    That third version they mentioned, I'm guessing it's the one that will include both versions of the game and the one that would be released in the west (at least from what I understood of their first direct).
