Guile will soon join the playable roster of Street Fighter V, and will be free until the Zenny shop goes live. Here's his promotional trailer.

Guile will be the second DLC character for Street Fighter V and a new trailer has been released to show him in action.

The trailer shows off his moveset, which includes Sonic Booms, Flash Kicks, a back breaker air throw, and some other familiar normals from previous games. We also get a glimpse at the Air Base stage, his V-Skill and V-Trigger, and hear the latest incarnation of the Guile theme, which will still go with everything.

Interestingly, he also has a new trick that will let him keep his charge as he slowly edges forwards.

Guile will join the roster later this month and will be free to download until the Zenny shop opens.

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.
