Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition week one tier list by Bonchan, Fuudo, and Haitani

Abigail, Rashid, and Guile are found in the 'S' tier category, but what about everyone else?

EVO Japan is a big tournament event that we'll be seeing this weekend. Despite the fact that the update for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition was released only just recently, that is one of the games that will be played.

We're at a point where the meta is very fresh. With that said, the game has been out for just about two years now. The top level players are getting good at breaking down this stuff.

Top players from Japan have already constructed a tier list, likely in preparation of EVO Japan. They rank all 29 characters that are currently in the game -- including Sakura. The players involved in this process are RB|Bonchan, GRPT|Fuudo, and GRPT|Haitani.

The playable fighters are categorized in S, A, B, and C tiers. The "A" label appears to have the highest number of combatants present in its group.

It probably isn't too surprising to hear that characters like Abigail, Rashid, and Guile are located in "S" tier. A lot of players appear to share these initial impressions.

Remember that it is still very early, so there is actually very little guarantee that this tiers will be accurate in a few months from now. Be sure to let us know what you agree and disagree with in the comments section.
