In addition to the titles, Nintendo of America has confirmed that Conquest and Birthright will feature same sex marriage, but the relationship will be restricted to versions. In Conquest, a Male and Male relationship is possible, meanwhile, Birthright will a female and female relationship is possible. A third edition will be introduced, allowing the protagonist to meet.
“In the Conquest edition of the game, there is a male character that the game’s player may have his/her male main character marry after they bond in battle.

Both of the aforementioned characters can be encountered in the third edition of the game.”
