Must-See Late Night Clip: Nintendo Characters Get Frisky to Celebrate Marriage Equality

Nintendo Characters Get Frisky to Celebrate Marriage Equality on Last Week Tonight

The #Miiquality campaign may have lost its bid to get Nintendo’s new “Tomodachi Life” game to include same-sex couple, but the company has promised to build “virtual equality” into later version of the game. Last night, John Oliver showed how Nintendo’s most famous characters were reacting to the news.

“Yes, virtual eventual equality. That’s the dream,” Oliver said before cutting to footage of Mario and Link celebrating the news with an impassioned kiss. Things went even further when Princess Peach and Princess Zelda heard the news. And, of course, Yoshi and Toad were finally able to tie the knot.
