Nintendo may be working on adding a trophy or achievement-style system to the Nintendo Switch, according to the latest rumors.

Recently, the developers of game Lichtspeer (which recently released with a new co-op mode on the Nintendo Switch) held an AMA on Reddit, and one of their comments hinted that Nintendo has some sort of unified system for tracking accomplishments in the works.

“Nintendo doesn’t have an official support for Achievements and Leaderboards, like Sony or Microsoft,” one of the Lichtund developers wrote in response to a fan’s question about online rankings. “But we know that they’re working on it. We’ll see how it goes and we’ll add the rankings along the way.”

When another fan asked if that information was supposed to have been kept a secret, the dev responded with “Oops. Move it along. Nothing to see here.”

Word of this should be taken with a grain of salt, since Nintendo itself hasn’t officially commented—it’s possible that the developers don’t have the full picture of what’s going on. But if Nintendo is in fact working on an achievement or leaderboard-style system, that could go a long way towards bringing the Nintendo Switch closer to the console experiences of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Nintendo’s full, paid online services aren’t set to launch until 2018, so we likely won’t see any type of online service like this before the end of the year. Now that we know something may be in the works, however, stay tuned for future updates.
