Huh, according to this article there never was such a patch! Apparently people in Japan dressed up female Miis as male to give the illusion they were gay and posted pictures. The patch that Nintendo issued was to fix a game breaking bug. Apparently the same-sex marriages were never in the game to begin with. That's pretty crazy.

Ya, I feel like the article could probably have been given a better title.

The source of the confusion appears to be a mistranslation on behalf of Kotaku.

Well, I'm certainly not surprised by that. XD

Hold on a sec, are you telling me that Kotaku may have sensationalized their article? I don't believe it!

I could see Kotaku going crazy about this.

The hilarity is that Nintendo didn't move an inch, yet Kotaku stirred the crap up and will conclude on it's own mess.

Yeah, but diplomatically ;)
