Rumor: Wii U achievements revealed by Nintendo

Nintendo of America's press site has been updated and now it says this:

“Families and friends can experience Mario together like never before with Miiverse. See other players’ comments and accomplishments while you play, and leave your own feedback for others to see when connected to the Nintendo Network.”

It sounds like these "accomplishments" could be the Wii U's version of achievements.

Someone could really have fun with the achievement names.

"Goombad - stomp on 1,000 enemies"

More suggestions people?

"Again? - Start game"

The first time you squat with Mario it could give the accomplishment "plumber butt"

Didn't Sony first consider the name "Accomplishments" before deciding to go with "Trophies" because "Accomplishments" didn't sound right or was too close to "Achievements" on the 360?

I am pretty sure I read that awhile back.

I am not surprised Nintendo is now having their own "Achievements" in games. It's pretty much the standard this gen to have in games.

I was hoping for something a little more Nintendo-y like 'Stars' or 'Coins'.

I haven't heard about Sony and 'Accomplishments', although I do believe they considered naming them 'Entitlements' at some point. Glad that didn't catch on.

ah yes thats right. +bubs to you good sir.

They have not revealed anything. This is referring to Miiverse support in Mario Where little speech bubbles pop up over the Levels like they showed in the first Video for Miiverse stuff like "Just beat this level in under 60 seconds."

However Iwata Did say a Miiverse Nintendo Direct was coming soon so if theirs any Accomplishment system I'm sure it will be talked about then. Personally i wont be to peeved if there are not any I don't need a pat on the back every time i do something in a game but it is nice to have them.

i don't think this is about achievements...

this seems more like the speech bubbles that appear in the main menu and inside the game...
