|Gotta catch'em all...or else|
die friendless and alone.
It's not a new concept, but next year's Fire Emblem If (Fates in the U.S.) will come in two different retail versions (well, three if you count DLC) and Nintendo is adding a whole new reason to pick one or the other: hot gay video game sex between androgynously drawn anime character sprites.
|It's simple, Byakuya Oukoku if you're into ladies,|
Anya Oukoku if you're into dudes. Got all that?
|Above: Gender plays no role as far as stats|
go, but when playing as the female, monsters
drop 21.9% less gold for some reason...*
|"I now pronounce you married,|
you may now level up."
|Because there's never been anything|
gay about Nintendo's games...
But this goes a long way towards making up for it and I applaud Nintendo for coming around to the kind of inclusiveness that gamers expect from pretty much every other major RPG series of the last 15 years. Even if it is a thinly-veiled attempt to get their customers to buy two copies of the same game. Progress, right?
|This is Iron Bull from Dragon Age Inquisition, easily the most desirable |
bisexual troll monster ever voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr. in all of gaming
and not once did he try to sell us on any DLC. Take note, Nintendo.
*Ok, no they don't, but seriously? That kind of shit wouldn't surprise me.
