Wii U will not have system-wide achievements

"They are up to the developers to include," says 5th Cell.

Nintendo’s Wii U will not have its own equivalent to the Achievements and Trophy systems, according to Scribblenauts Unlimited developer 5th Cell. At least, not system-wide accomplishments.

“There are no Wii U accomplishments that are system wide,” said the studio’s Jeremiah Slaczka in a NeoGAF post.

“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.”

Wii U will launch next Sunday, November 18 in North America.
