Street Fighter 6 is bringing back a classic character, as revealed in new gameplay footage of the upcoming fighter.
Revealed at Summer Game Fest 2023, Guile is returning to the classic fighting series in its next installment. Guile, who is a US Air Force Major in Street Fighter lore, was shown off in a brief gameplay trailer for Street Fighter 6. It’s the last footage we’ve seen of the upcoming game, and it shows the series as many fans will remember, only with much prettier visuals.
Guile also appears to be the same charismatic fighter that fans will recognize from previous titles in the series. You can count on defeating your opponents while producing catchphrases loosely related to military catchphrases.
Watch the brief gameplay clip below. While brief, it gives us a solid look at the direction Street Fighter 6 is heading. For the most part, this direction feels safe, as it recreates the same fighting experience that many will recognize from the series’ arcade roots. Expect more of the same, but for modern hardware.
The Street Fighter 6 reveal didn’t bring a firmer release date, however. We’re still left with the tantalizing, if vague, 2023 window. We hope that means early in the year, not later.
