No, I like the 4-character limit on names; it prevents screen clutter.

Some players put a lot of thought into their nametags in Super Smash Brothers games, and Sakurai puts a lot of thought into the names himself. Just look at all the options the game gives you for randomly-generated names; the name generator is like a game of its own. Would you like it if this game raised the character limit and allowed you to enter a longer name for yourself? Or are you satisfied with the character limit from Brawl?

Ha.

EDIT: And yeah, for the record, that'd be nice. Didn't Brawl make it 5 characters, though? Or am I on something?

Short names and good names are not mutually exclusive. You lack sufficient evidence to say longer names are even close to a good idea.
I am the cheese. I am the best character on the show. I am better than both the salami and the bologna combined.

Yes, but what if a long name is potentially better?

The WiiU is a higher resolution than the Wii, meaning it can fit more pixels on the same screen, meaning it can potentially display longer names without cluttering the screen.

It's not a question of possibility, it's a question of how to do it unambiguously. Any way you do it could easily be mistaken for something else.

Snk6? Cool, a King of Fighters fan.

Spy6? Stealthy.

Spn6? Spin 6 times? Now I'm dizzy.

Sky6? What about skies 1 through 5?

Spky? I please don't poke me with those barbs all over your body.

Snky? Not sure if ninja or Jersey Shore slut.

Brawl was indeed five letters.

And I don't really care either way.

Then would you like the game to have more than 5 letters?
