Olimar beat out Wolf, Mario and Inkling while Sheik and Rosalina were non-factors: Top 128 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character usage at Genesis 6

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has one of if not the biggest fighting game roster at launch ever with 75-selectable characters right now, so it's fairly impressive how many of them are currently seeing tournament play at the highest level.

Genesis 6 is going on as the biggest tournament for Smash Ultimate since its launch with top talent from the Americas, Europe and Asia coming together for the first time for a true test of wills and how the early meta is shaping up.

We've collected the character usage stats for the top 128 players at Genesis this weekend, and between them 52 different gaming icons came out to do work with some familiar and new faces.

Olimar appears to have risen from his mediocrity of Smash 4 since he was the most used character at Genesis with nine players picking him up along with some other popular fighters including Mario, Wolf and Inkling who each had six people maining them.

Some of the biggest threats from the Smash 4 days seem to have not transferred over to the new game, however, as Sheik, Corrin and Rosalina did not see any play so far this weekend in the upper brackets.

Unfortunately, some of the newcomers seem to have dropped off a bit as well with fighters King K. Rool not making it very far at Genesis either. You can take a look at the full character usage statistics for the top 128 after the jump.
