Fun fact 1: When Nintendo removed the glitch that allowed homosexuality, they sparked controversy. They said that in the next Tomodachi game, homosexuality will be included.
Fun fact 2: Some people set their gay characters as the opposite gender. I do the same thing.
Akal is a gay man. He was set as female so he’d be attracted to other men. And then there’s Jen, a lesbian. She was set as male so she’d be attracted to other women.
Both Akal and Jen did find their partners; Joe and Thea respectively. Only Jen and Thea are married, and Akal and Joe are still boyfriends (sweethearts the game says) to this day.
