Names are a feature in Super Smash Bros. Clash. They work much like they do in Brawl, but there are some changes. Offline, as always this is entirely optional.
Names do have a few new features though, in particular, there are quite a few gameplay-related options you can toggle regarding them, such as:
- For Ryu, using his old Street Fighter-style inputs for his moves. (such as QCF + Special for his Hadoken)
- Whether to have Taunts on or off. This lets you use the D-pad for inputting Clash Attack / Final Smash motions.
- In friendly Wi-Fi matches, you can also set different Taunt messages to each of your names.
Upon logging on to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for the first time you'll still have to input a name, though. This is displayed in all matches now though, meaning it actually does appear in the random modes. You can turn this off in the settings for Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
