During Summer Game Fest 2022, Capcom revealed new gameplay for Street Fighter 6, coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2023.
The developer revealed that Guile will be a part of the roster along with his iconic stage. Further, we get a look at gameplay and some of the combos that Guile will be able to execute. The bottom line is, that it looks cool as hell.
The PlayStation Blog shared more information about the character:
Guile’s move set in Street Fighter 6 combines his signature moves with fresh additions. He is one powerhouse of a character who retains his ability to keep opponents at a distance. Splatters of green and yellow paint cover the stage when Guile utilizes the Drive System, harkening to the colors of his classic look.
Guile’s Sonic Boom and Somersault Kick (Flash Kick) are set to make their triumphant return in Street Fighter 6. What would Guile be without them, right? Sonic Boom is Guile’s main projectile ability and travels across the stage while Somersault Kick is an instant upwards move that can protect from airborne attacks.
Guile’s Sonic Blade from Street Fighter V returns as a Special Move rather than a V-Skill and sees him placing a stationary aerial slash in front of him. Sonic Blade can then be turned into a two-hit projectile if combined with Sonic Boom.
Sonic Hurricane (1 Stock) – Introduced in Street Fighter Alpha 3, Guile fires a massive aerial slash directly ahead. If used with a Heavy Punch, the aerial slash fires diagonally upwards as a good anti-air option. An extremely versatile move that can be used in combos, to counter projectiles, or as a way to turn the tables when being pressured.
Solid Puncher (2 Stocks) – Introduced in Street Fighter V as Guile’s V-Trigger I, Solid Puncher is now a Super Art. Guile envelops both arms in aerial slashes and enables the use of Sonic Break, where a flurry of small Sonic Boom projectiles can be unleashed simply by pressing the punch buttons.
Crossfire Somersault (3 Stocks) – A brand new Super Art, Guile puffs his chest and fires a massive aerial slash that launches the opponent into the air before following up with a brutal Somersault Kick.
For those curious, the allegedly 22-character leaked roster is viewable below:
Cammy (United Kingdom)
Dee Jay (Jamaica)
E. Honda (Japan)
Ed (German and
Jamie (Hong Kong)
Juri (South Korea)
Rashid (Saudi Arabia)
Riri or Lili (Mexico)
