Nintendo’s Wii U is releasing later this year, however, since E3 2012 in June, the company hasn’t talked much about their upcoming home console release, thus leaving gamers with a lot of questions as its 2012 release nears.
While a date, price, and launch day software is all expected to be revealed this September, other features like online, storage, and whether games will support an Achievement or Trophy like system remain a mystery.
On Thursday morning, it was reported that “Project Cars” developer, Slightly Mad Studios, revealed that the Wii U may have an in-game reward system similar to Microsoft’s Achievement and Sony’s “Trophy” system known as “Nintendo Wii U Accomplishments”.
Along with a list of PS3 and Xbox 360 Trophy/Achievements, the company also listed a curious “Nintendo Wii U Accomplishments” section. Nintendo’s 3DS “StreetPass” mini-games also have in-game tasks known as “Accomplishments”, however, they are exclusive to “StreetPass” content and can’t be viewed by other players.
At this time there is no confirmation or comment from Nintendo on the Wii U “Accomplishment” system, but it’s something that may be mentioned in future “Nintendo Direct” video presentations, or perhaps detailed along with the Nintendo Wii U’s launch date and pricing in the near future.
