The Wii U won't have an accomplishment system analogous to the PlayStation Network's trophies or Xbox Live's Achievements, according to one developer.
The news comes via Scribblenauts developer 5th Cell's creative director and co-founder Jeremiah Slaczka.
"There are no Wii U accomplishments that are system-wide," he wrote on NeoGAF.
Instead, it seems developers will be able to implement their own individual accomplishment systems should they choose.
"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," Slaczka said, for example.
Although the Wii U's launch is nearly upon us - November 18 in the US, and November 30 in Europe - Nintendo has been slow to detail its online connectivity, leaving many in hopes of an as-yet-unannounced accomplishments system. That hope appears to be fruitless.
