Gay men can reportedly marry and raise a family in Nintendo's life simulation game Tomodachi Collection: New Life.

According to, the latest version of Nintendo's take on The Sims allows male Mii characters to marry other males. However, women cannot marry other women.

Previous versions of the game, released only in Japan for the Nintendo DS, did not allow same-gender unions.

“In Japan, some Tomodachi Collection: New Life owners seem thrilled by the bug, posting photos of their gay couples online,” the blog wrote. “In the images, male Mii characters ask each other to go steady, propose marriage, go on honeymoons, bathe together and raise children.”

According to one Twitter user, Nintendo says it is aware of the issue and is preparing a patch. But it's uncertain whether that means allowing lesbian relationships or removing the feature.
