'Mabonigi', a free-to-play MMO from Nexon, allows for same-sex in-game marriages of characters.
Weddings have become a popular element Nexon's free-to-play MMO Mabinogi with more than 67,000 in-game unions since the game launched in 2008. All of these unions have been with characters of opposite genders. In a few days, Nexon will be allowing characters of the same gender to marry in the game.
The company says this change of Mabinogi's marriage system follows countless suggestions from players asking for the feature to be added to the MMO.
"When players speak out about specific content, we do our best to deliver," said Teddy Kim, Nexon America's Mabinogi producer. "That is the great thing about Mabinogi; it allows players fully immerse themselves in the lives they take on in-game. Players can get married, fight dragons, become musicians or learn to cook. We think that opening up the wedding system to same gender characters is fully in the spirit of offering nearly limitless options to our players."
Same-sex marrages become permissible with Mabinogi's "Classic" update, which will be live in the coming days.
