5th Cell’s creative director and co-founder Jeremiah Slaczka has shed a little light on the matter of whether or not the Wii U will have some form of universal accomplishment system to rival Achievements and Trophies on the Xbox 360 and PS3 respectively.
The general message? Don't get your hopes up.
“There are no Wii U accomplishments that are system-wide,” Slaczka posted on NeoGAF.
"They are up to the developers to include or not include. Scribblenauts Unlimited loosely has them in the form of 'Global Starite Shards' which is like a giant checklist of global things to spawn and do in the game that aren't area specific."
Nintendo has been notably silent on almost anything to do with online connectivity and wider Miiverse features, annd the company has long-resisted the temptation to follow Microsoft and Sony in implementing a standardised acknowledgement of accomplishment across any of their systems.
Doesn't look like that's about to change any time soon.
