Guile goes with everything, Street Fighter V even more so. Guile has been officially released and is free to play (providing you ponied up for the game itself) until the cash shop is opened. After the shop hits, he’ll be purchasable with either Fight Money, which you earn in game, or real Earth dollars if you’re not that patient. You’ll also get access if you purchased the season pass, along with all other characters that will be released in the future.

He’s the most iconic of the charge characters outside of M. Bison himself and has a new bag of tricks much like everyone else who has been brought back into the latest Street Fighter game. I’m a big fan of his new ability that enables him to creep forward while crouching, so that charge is always ready for a somersault kick to be unleashed. Not to mention the new fireball he gets from his V-skill that gives a new shape to sonic booms when you shoot one into it. It makes more sense when you watch the video.

A flash kick unleashed!

I have a deep desire to get good at fighting games but I’m far from expert at this stage so don’t ask me for any tips.
