I think youl get him, as well as shinnok hope reiko is there!

OT: looks good, classic look. I swear I knew they would pair him against kotal khan.

I kinda assumed he would be. It isn't MK without Raiden's flying hug maneuver.

True. Shang Tsung and Liu Kang will always be in the game because of the story I guess. Sub-Zero and Scorpion because they are the most iconic for the game besides being two of the most fan favorite.

Liu Kang is dead, you obviously didn't play MK9, because he was killed in the main story.

Sonya, Johnny Cage, Liu Kang and other iconic Mortal Kombat fighters announcement awaiting...lol
As ridiculous as it is, I do want to see the videos introducing the fighters, even if some are expected.
Edit: upon looking at the video, good God, those moves are fluid and fighting is extremely realistic, even if it's a fantasy based fighter.
Very impressed with the character models and how they move.

Nice, raidens animations look so slick, like the as he moves. Don't know why people say the graphics are bad.

Am I the only one who loved Havik?
SuperSandLegend  +   286d ago
YES, my main looks even more bad ass than ever! Yeah, it's not a new character like we'd hoped but I'm still content with the reveal.

This had me giddy. Raiden has been my favorite MK character since the original MKhis absence from MK 3 and UMK3 was disappointing, but when they brought him back for MK trilogy edition I was happy.
