'In an announcement from Ed Boon and NetherRealm Studios after the Injustice Grand Finals at EVO 2014, the Thunder God Raiden is announced as playable in Mortal Kombat X.'
Now added the trailer, captured from the livestream.
Booo I wanted Fujin
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.
@CertifiedGamer Crap! I meant Raiden! >_<
fujin or shinnok or good choices as well
Awesome I'm glad raiden returns. <--,<--,-->
Raiden Thunder God. With more to come. I am glad fighting games are still thriving,but I miss Bloody Roar
As if we didn't know !! Dam I hate pointless news
He looks closer to his MK4 iteration, good good.
Raiden from MGS would be so badass in MK.
I like the new design for Raiden
Its like saying ryu will be in sf4 boring
Agreed. Hardly a surprise. I am hoping to see plenty more new characters.
Here is the trailer
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.
I really like the interaction with the environment thing,it's a nice touch
Am I the only one who loved Havik?
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.
