Better stock up on hair gel, Guile is coming to Street Fighter V later this month.
Because the Zenny (real money) Shop still isn’t ready, Guile will be a free download for all Street Fighter V players when he’s released. However, players who haven’t purchased the Season Pass will lose access to the character once the shop goes live later this Spring. Guile’s Air Force Base Stage will also be available to download using Street Fighter V’s in-game currency.
You can check out Guile’s new look at the Capcom-Unity blog, and an overview of his hair-raising new moves can be found right here:
In Street Fighter V, Guile retains his ability to dominate both the ground and air with his solid normal attacks and special moves, such as Sonic Boom and Somersault Kick. He also now has the ability to enter a crouch walk state called Faultless Move which allows him to keep his charge while moving forward, giving him even more options in his kit to keep his opponents in line. Guile is a great choice for those of you who are looking for a charge character who can easily control the pace of the match.
V-Skill: Sonic Blade
Guile spins up sonic energy to create a Sonic Blade which acts as a stationary projectile that can also juice up his Sonic Booms. Sonic Blade can really help Guile pressure opponents on their wake-up or help him win projectile battles as it increases Sonic Boom durability!
V-Trigger: Solid Puncher
Guile powers up and tosses out continuous Sonic Booms! Each button throws a Sonic Boom at a different speed, so mixing up between buttons can create interesting Sonic Boom sequences. Depending on the sequence used, this can act as a great combo extender, be used to overwhelm opponents or easily push his opponents to the corner.
Critical Art: Sonic Hurricane
Guile’s most devastating attack, the Sonic Hurricane! Guile powers up and hits his opponent with a massive, multi-hit Sonic Boom. This Critical Art receives a damage and range boost while his V-Trigger is active.
Capcom also plans to implement a system to punish players who frequently disconnect during online matches as part of Street Fighter V’s April update. According to the publisher, players who disconnect early will be locked out of the game’s matchmaking service for a period of time, so habitual Rage Quitters will lose their ability to play online.
