Reggie spills the beans about what gamers can expect from achievements on Nintendo's next home console.
The Wii U will have system-level achievements, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime revealed in a recent interview with Kotaku.
According to Fils-Aime, some of the top game designers working for Nintendo do not want an achievement system in their games similar to the ones found on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 or Sony’s PlayStation 3, which means that achievements will not be required for every game. The achievement system will be very similar to what is found in the Nintendo 3DS in the StreetPass Mii Plaza.
“Once you start getting into game-specific [achievements] that’s developer driven.” Although the companies like Microsoft may require every game to have Achievements, Fils-Aime remarked, “That is not our philosophy.”
