In the past, we’ve told you about the controversy surrounding the upcoming Tomodachi Life, which is scheduled to release in the US early next month. When the game launched in Japan, there was a bug that allowed you to change genders, which allowed for same-sex relationships. However, this was later removed and not added into the upcoming US version, even after a internet movement was started, with a petition included.
Just like his new show’s title states, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver chose to weigh in on this issue from last week in his latest episode with a very funny segment. One of the major parts of the segment is the fact that Nintendo says they couldn’t fix this in the current game, but would work towards equality in future games in the series. It is better for you to just watch it for yourself, rather than I describe it, so check it out below.
