Don't Be Shocked; Raiden Officially Revealed for Mortal Kombat X
After Mortal Kombat X was officially announced last month with a reveal trailer featuring Scorpion and Sub-Zero, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios brought the game to E3 2014, showing off not only those two characters, but also four new fighters: D'Vorah, Ferra and Torr, Cassie Cage, and Kotal Kahn. Yesterday, at EVO 2014, everyone's favorite teleporting thunder god Raiden was officially revealed. Considering he's one of the franchise's mainstays alongside Scorpion and Sub-Zero, his inclusion is not that surprising, but it's still nice to get official confirmation. Even better is that the reveal came accompanied with a gameplay trailer, showing off his three variations (each character has three versions, which alter their move set), an electrifying X-Ray move, and his head-popping Fatality.
In order of their appearance in the video, Raiden's three variations are: Thunder God, specializing in Electrocution Kombos; Displacer, specializing in Teleportation; and Storm Lord, specializing in Lightning Traps.
Mortal Kombat X will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2015. Since I never posted them before, I attached the screenshots released during E3 2014; no Raiden screenshots have been released yet.
