Rumor: Wii U achievements called “Accomplishments”

How many accomplishments do you have?

Wii U will have an achievements/trophies system, that’s confirmed. What’s not confirmed is the system’s name.

Well, according to a design document (dated back to May) from Project Cars, an upcoming game for the platform, it’s called “Accomplishments.”

“The following Xbox 360 Achievements, PlayStation Trophies, and Wii U Accomplishments are available in Project Cars and total 1000 Gamerscore/1050 Trophy Points,” reads the document.

Accomplishments. How does the name sound to you?

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    Meh. Why Not -> WiiU Wins!

  • Cool. I love collecting achievements/trophy.
    I hate online trophy though.

  • RmanX1000

    I wish the name was more original but im glad theyre implementing this sort of feature. No major complaints.

    I like it better than achievements honestly. Though I really dont care for the idea in general. 90% of “achievements” seem to be purely to trick people into thinking the game has more content than it really does, so that devs can be lazier. I remember back in the 90s there was REAL secret stuff in games that actually took work to discover (even if you knew HOW it was still hard to do)

    Its ok nothing special out of the 3 I prefer achievements.

      I prefer trophies :P

    Man, I knew they were gonna call ’em accomplishments. I remember when there was an update adding accomplishments to 3DS Street Pass Mii Plaza. At the time i thought the 3DS games themselves had accomplishments and so I bought a 3DS due in-part to the accomplishment misunderstanding. 

    But Yeah, If they add ’em to the Wii U, I hope maybe they’ll add ’em to the 3DS via an update or something.

    Well, as Trophies and Achievements are already used by Sony and MS Nintendo do not have much choice left in naming their counterpart. Accomplishments sounds fair to me.

    • I also hope that getting Accomplishments gaining medal or something like Trophy with Platinum, not just score.

        we’ll see how the launch will turn out for Nintendo. somehow I get the feeling this will be Nintendo’s most risky endeavor ever.

    Wish it were WiiU ‘High-Fives’. 

  • rockman29

    Wait, since when is Project CARS coming to consoles? I had no idea.

    That game looks insane on PC.

  • Yuri4prez

    Not really feeling the name. They should call their achievement/trophy system something simple, like “Medals”

    Just my opinion. Either way is fine.

    • Leonardo Rodriguez

      Yes pal, just what I thought! “Medals” would be fine

  • Rezar

    Accomplishments makes sense to me. After all in Street Plaza for the Nintendo 3DS there are Accomplishments. For those in Street Plaza you get them through meeting Miis from other countries, completing Find Mii and Puzzle Swap. If there are Accomplishments for meeting Miis on the Wii U that is going to suck.

  • FlameEmperor

    Sounds pretty good to me.
    You get an “Accomplishment” for accomplishing something in game.

  • Square Enix had “Accomplishments” in Dissidia and it suited it well. It’s not very original but if that’s what Nintendo goes with it will be fine. I agree with everyone else that at least a Nintendo platform is getting some form of achievements/trophies.
