Guile Is the April 2016 Street Fighter V DLC Character

Capcom revealed today that the April 2016 DLC character for Street Fighter V is Guile, who will be released “later this month” on PlayStation 4 and PC.

When Guile launches, he’ll be available for free to all players until the Zenny shop launches, and he’ll come with his own Character Story and Trials. If you’re a Season Pass owner, his Battle Costume will be available for free.

In Street Fighter V, Guile will use normal attacks and special moves, such as Sonic Boom and Somersault Kick, to rule the ground and air. With the crouch walk state called Faultless Move, Guile’s able to keep his charge while moving forward.

Here’s what to expect from his V-Skill, V-Trigger, and Critical Art:

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 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.


Additionally, the first DLC stage, Air Force Base, will be available in the Shop for 70,000 Fight Money, while Season Pass owners get it for free “as a thank you for supporting Street Fighter V.”
