Guile makes his triumphant return in Street Fighter 6.

Featured during the Summer Game Fest 2022 showcase, Capcom and Street Fighter 6 reveal Guile as the fifth character of the game’s roster. Guile joins the ranks of Chun-Li, Ryu, Luke, and Jamie who were the first four members of the roster revealed during the previous PlayStation State of Play broadcast. Guile is no stranger to the franchise and was most recently part of Street Fighter 5. But it is always a more satisfying feeling when it’s official. Especially since there were times when Charlie would appear in his stead. Watch the official reveal trailer for absolute confirmation.

Street Fighter 6 Guile Reveal Trailer

Guile is bringing much of his classic move set in Street Fighter 6. His trusty Sonic Boom, Somersault Kick, and Solid Punchers continue his legacy of intensity and power. But, this old dog also has some new tricks. Players can challenge themselves to pull off each of his high-powered attacks with the Classic Control Type or jump straight into the action with the brand new, simplified Modern Control type. There is always the option of button mashing as well, no one will judge you. Check out some of Guile’s moves in the stills and list below.

Guile continues to be a powerhouse of a character who has the ability to keep opponents at a distance or pound in some punches and booted kicks in close quarters. When Guile utilizes the drive system, splatterings of green and yellow paint will cover the stage, harkening to his original color scheme and look. The OG green tank top, camo pants, and pristine blonde flat top. Fans will get to replay Guile’s old moves and experience his new ones when Capcom’s Street Fighter 6 come out next year.

Professional Nerd | Amateur Human | Creative/Content Director The best way to describe Kevin Fenix is the kid you never tell what the buttons do in video games so you have a chance to win. Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
