Gaming Giant Nintendo Officially Gave a Power Up to Same-Sex Couples in Japan

Nintendo Japan has made the bold move to recognize same-sex marriage among its employees. It’s a big deal considering this union is considered “unconstitutional” in Japan.

On their website, they have already incorporated “Introduction of a Partnership System” addressing the rights of people in same-sex relationships at the company. According to this policy, employees with same-sex partnerships and common-law marriages will enjoy the same benefits as those who are legally married.

While Nintendo Japan has only around 2,270 employees, this move is a welcome change considering Japan is the only country among the G7 Nations that does recognize same-sex marriage.
