The Japanese version of the game released last year already featured an option to pair up with any bachelor. However, if your desired a partner that happens to be of the same sex the Japanese version called this bound “Best Friends” that essentially functions the same as a traditional marriage in the game.

localization manager Johnathan Wheeler at XSEED games now explained that the western version of the game will simply call this marriage no matter if its same sex or not.

One major change between both the original version and the remake, as well as between our version and the Japanese version, concerns what has been called the “Best Friends” system in the Japanese release, where the player character can form a lifelong partnership with a character of the same sex.

In our version, this will just be called “marriage,” and the relationship between same-sex couples will be given identical treatment to opposite-sex couples. This has been a very long time coming in the STORY OF SEASONS series, and the producer has been supportive of our decision from very early in development.
