Kirby and Pit are top-tier, followed by Villager, Zero Suit Samus, Mario and Wii Fit Trainer; early tiers based on Super Smash Bros. E3 invitationals

Kirby and Pit are currently Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS's (also known simply as "Smash 4") top-tier characters, with Villager, Zero Suit Samus, Mario and Wii Fit Trainer following closely behind, a rather detailed impressions post over at Smash Bros. competitive community site Melee It On Me speculates.


The tier impressions are based on what's playable and shown over at Nintendo's E3 invitational tournament, so these are early tiers information at best, and are highly susceptible to change. This isn't even the final build of the game.

Still, the list is fairly interesting, especially if you were one of those players who thought about maining Little Mac after watching him beast in the character reveal trailer.

Top Tier
- Kirby
- Pit

High Tier
- Villager
- Zero Suit Samus
- Mario
- Wii Fit Trainer

Mid Tier
- Pikachu
- Sonic
- Fox
- Marth
- Greninja

Low Tier
- Bowser
- Zelda

Bottom Tier
- Little Mac (for FFA, TERRIBLE). Might be god-like on FD
- Bowser (DJN’s opinion)

???
- Olimar
- Rosalina
- Donkey Kong
- Link

Apart from this early tiers list, Melee It On Me's E3 invitationals impression post also contains plenty of detailed notes on whether or not specific pieces of tech from older Smash Bros. games are making a return in Smash 4, as well as brief thoughts on Mario, Fox and Marth.

Head over to their site here to check out all the good stuff -- there's even some heavy discussion on the game's early impressions in the comments.
