Creative director and co-founder of 5th Cell Jeremiah Slaczka has revealed on NeoGAF that the Wii U will not have a universal achievement system.

Slaczka went on to explain how Scribblenauts Unlimited would have its own in-game accomplishments:

There are no Wii U accomplishments that are system wide. 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.

It seems that developers will be able to add internal achievements for their games should they choose to go down that road, but you won't have a Gamer Score or trophy system to brag to your friends about.

Are achievements a requirement for today's generation, or are they just a waste of time? Do you think there's a chance that Nintendo might include such a feature in a future update? Let us know in the comment section below.
