Nintendo Co. this month apologized for the failure to include the option to have same-sex relationships in Tomodachi Life for the Nintendo 3DS.
The company said in a statement it is not possible to change the design of the title in a post-ship patch.
It added it will pledge to design a gameplay experience more inclusive and better representative of all players if it creates a future installment.
Finally, the title will include virtual celebrities, including Christina Aguilera in a Mii character available at launch.
It will be sold June 6 at $34.99.
