While not much has been revealed about Nintendo’s upcoming online subscription service, the Big N may be working on an achievement/trophy system for the Nintendo Switch if recent comments from developers of Lichtspeer are to be believed.
During a Reddit AMA, the team behind Lichtspeer, which is currently available on Switch, were asked about whether the game supported online rankings; in the reply, team member Tom indicated that they were hoping to add rankings “along the way”, also dropping this intriguing comment:
“Nintendo doesn’t have an official support for Achievements and Leaderboards, like Sony or Microsoft, but we know that they’re working on it.”
When pressed further for clarification of his comment, Tom responded with a guilty “Oops” before adding that he thinks Nintendo “hinted it a few times”.
If these devs are to be believed then Nintendo is working away behind the scenes on some kind of Achievement system for the Nintendo Switch. As always, take this news with a hefty grain of salt as Nintendo has, so far, made no official comment on these claims.
Lichtspeer launched on Switch as Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition earlier this month.
What do you think of this announcement? Does Nintendo need an achievement/trophy system to stay competitive with the other consoles? Let us know in the comments.
