By Jorge Ba-oh 28.06.2007 13

Quick News: The latest Smash Bros Dojo update reveals the ability to assign custom button configurations for each registered player name, selecting controller type also, to make controller selections quicker for each battle. The team are also considering the ability to save names on Wii-remotes for portability.

:O Thats great news, hopfully they can get it too save to the wii remote because that would be quite handy although I wonder how it will display on the mii menu? Maby just a smash icon taking up a few mii slots?

This time, enter it like you would on your cell phone!

ZOMG can't wait for that Smilie, looks like i'm gonna be called JAMS or JMES again, damm 5 letter name.

My name has 4/6 letters, but I usually go by an Alias of sorts on Smash Bros anyway. On Melee my names were "Link" or "

Fucking stupid. Why not use a proper keyboard.

I guess it makes sense for people using conventional pads and it's only 4 lettres at the end of the day, qwerty option for wii pointer input would have been nice. Unless the game dosn't support the pointer at all, I don't see any curser there on the screens.

Well, I don't really see the point of using the Mobile Phone thing if there's no pointer input... It was fine on Melee....

Oh well pointer functionality should be there with a full keyboard but it's a only a minor gripe within the game I guess.

It's times like this I wonder why they decided to have a website with updates like this...

Do you not think that they're expecting feedback? I'm sure there is a lot of time to change this if they can see we don't like it...

It's a puzzle stupid!

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

I hope they can save the settings on the Wii remote. That'd be great.

Maybe you can have a combo assigned to one button. You pick you're favorite or hardest combo and assign to, say, the Y button (that was just another jump button in Melee, wasn't it?). That's the only I can think of that I would change from the default layout.

Great news, i didnt expect this! Smilie

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

I really don't see what they would use the cell phone pad instead of the qwerty keyboard. Besides that, looks like this is the 1st step into online.

Smilie I don't have any problem with my name, I just need 4 spaces to write "ARJ3", but most recent I've been using the name "UDK". Those 2 names mean the same Smilie

As it goes for the cellphone format, I think maybe they wanted to be more "modern", which basically sucks. Smilie Why they couldn't make the regular keyboard?

Sounds cool though, this will make the training sessions a bit more like a challenge Smilie

K-k-keep the r-r-r-reviews coming! Smilie
