The reigning EVO champion for Super Smash Bros. Melee, TSM|Leffen, has been exploring the all new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as he no doubt is preparing to become one of the competitive leaders in this latest chapter of Smash history.

While live streaming earlier today the Swedish player put together a tier list for the entire starting roster, which includes more than 70 playable characters.

While we're a bit skeptical of such an early assessment of character strengths, Leffen's is one of the best minds in the world when it comes to this franchise, and as a pro he's probably had a bit more experience than the rest of us with Ultimate at this point.

We should point out that he hasn't covered every single last fighter quite yet, as he leaves six characters and the Mii Fighters under a "?" tier for the time being.

The TSM representative places Falco, Simon Belmont, Diddy Kong and a few others in the top tier category, and notes specifically that Falco's ability to convert true combos from so many different approaches makes him incredibly strong.

You can view the tier list from his Twitter right here and then there's a quick clip from Leffen's stream depicting a 69% Falco combo after the jump. Chime into the comments with your thoughts on Leffen's list after you give it a look.
