William “I’m just on another level” Guile.
As part of Summer Game Fest 2022, Capcom revealed Guile for Street Fighter 6, the next installment of the Street Fighter series.
Understandably, fans are hyped for the return of this buff military man and his new look.
William J. Guile, often just known as Guile, has been a recurring Street Fighter character since his start as one of the eight original competitors from Street Fighter 2.
He’s a Major in the United States Air Force on a mission to take down the criminal organization, Shadaloo.
He’s usually investigating Shadaloo in some shape or form throughout the Street Fighter series, so I’d assume he’s on a similar case in Street Fighter 6.
Guile’s Street Fighter 6 character trailer shows off his powerful kicks and hurricane attacks in the series’ new urban style.
Look at the man teaching Luke a lesson. He’s also seen going hand-to-hand with Street Fighter poster boy, Ryu.
Capcom really nailed the ‘90s goon vibe in Guile’s trailer. Just watch how he whips his comb out.
“I’m just on another level.”
Guile stands as one of Street Fighter’s most popular zoners. His signature Sonic Boom works similar to Ryu and Ken’s Hadouken fireball.
Of course, the Flash Kick is there too. FGC members also noticed his new double sweep.
Fans also seem to really enjoy Guile’s facial hair, which is a first in the series. I guess Ryu isn’t the only one growing out his beard.
He also has eyebrows now.
Guile was a DLC character in Street Fighter 5, but it looks like you can get him with just the cost of the base game this time around.
He joins newcomers Luke and Jamal, and series veterans Ryu and Chun-Li on the Street Fighter 6 roster.
We’ll have to see who Capcom has in mind next after this Chaddy.
