Nintendo has big plans for the Wii U friend code system

by on June 12, 2012

With Nintendo’s journey into the online world set to really kick-off with the Wii U, the company has big plans for it’s online friend code system. In a recent interview, Reggie Fils-Aime told Kotaku that an enhanced version of the friend code system will arrive with the Wii U.

“It’s not the existing friend code system,” Fils-Aime told the publication. “You will be able to identify people as friends and have a certain level of interaction vs. a different level of intereaction for the more general population. The method by which you identify someone as a friend is a lot simpler than what’s happening today with Friend Codes.”

These changes will also carry over into a new achievement system for the Wii U. However, these achievements won’t be incorporated into every game, it’ll be developer driven.
