Street Fighter 5's Guile soars to destroy when he arrives on April 28

'Go home and be a family man.'


Capcom has announced Guile will be available to download in Street Fighter 5 starting April 28.

We don’t recommend staying up late tonight to download Guile as Capcom plans on releasing him on April 28th by 7pm PT. That means we could very well see him pop up prior to 7pm, although you should probably expect him to become available closer to the time Capcom suggested.

We first learned Guile would be included in Street Fighter 5 just a few weeks ago along with a his official trailer. His Air Force Base stage will be available in the Shop for 70,000FM, although Season Pass holders will receive it for free.

For those who may not have caught it the first time, here are Guile’s moves in Street Fighter 5:

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.
