While Nintendo has always been known to march to the beat of their own drum, more and more gamers are being lured into the meta-game of collecting Achievements for their Xbox One, and Trophies on the PS4. Is it time Nintendo followed suit with a Nintendo Achievements system of some kind? Well, according to a game developer, that might just be what’s happening now.
In a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit by Lichtspeer, developer Tom “Crunching Koalas” revealed this little nugget when answering a few reader inquires. Check out the reddit post below.
If you can’t read that, here’s what Crunching Koalas said in full:
Nintendo doesn’t have an official support for Achievements and Leaderboards, like Sony or Microsoft but we know that they’re working on it. We’ll see how it goes and we’ll add the rankings along the way.
Also, the game has multiple levels, game modes and difficulty levels, and because of that the rankings seem a little bit scattered. At least that was our experience from other platforms. [Tom]
So Nintendo Achievements system and leaderboards?! Yep, got that. There is a chance that the devs have been misinformed, but chances are, they just let something slip that they weren’t supposed to.
Would Nintendo implementing an Achievements or Trophy system of some kind be good for the Nintendo Switch? Would it pull in any new people into the console? Share your thoughts in the comments.
