Achievements might be coming to the Nintendo Switch – is it about time?

Would you like an achievement system on Nintendo platforms going forward?

Another day, another juicy piece of information we’re probably not meant to know about yet. Could an achievements system be coming to the Nintendo Switch? It certainly looks like it.

The developers of Lichtspeer, an indie game just released for the console, recently conducted an AMA where “Redditors” could ask questions about the game’s development.

It was here that one particular question – whether the game had online rankings or not – caused a storm. The answer was quite revealing:

“Nintendo doesn’t have an official support for Achievements and Leaderboards, like Sony or Microsoft but we know that they’re working on it.”

Another user then highlighted the answer and asked if such knowledge was supposed to be, ahem, a secret. The devs responded, most likely realising that this information wasn’t, in fact, ready for the gaming public:

“Move along. Nothing to see here. Strong feeling [Nintendo] hinted it a few times”.

That last bit seems like damage control to us. Is this something we could see announced at the Nintendo Direct tonight? We’ll find out soon enough. Meanwhile, why not check out our piece on what to expect.
