No Trophies Or Achievements For Wii U

No Trophies Or Achievements For Wii U

Unfortunately, according to Jeremiah Slaczka of 5th Cell, the Wii U will not include a universal trophy system like other consoles.  However, individual games/developers can include their own versions of achievements in games.

Slaczka had the following to say:

“There are no Wii U accomplishments that are system wide. 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.”

Is the exclusion of achievements a make or break deal for you?  In my opinion, it really does not bother me.  I am fine with in-game only achievements, such as the trophies in Smash Bros.
