Raiden confirmed for Mortal Kombat X with two minutes of gameplay

Posted on July 14, 2014 AT 02:59am

NetherRealm announced during the Evolution Championship Series fighting game tournament in Las Vegas that Raiden will appear in Mortal Kombat X next year.

Creator Ed Boon told IGN that Raiden will have three different variations: Displacer, Storm Lord, and Thunder God Raiden. Displacer Raiden makes use of a teleportation ability, while Storm Lord Raiden gains access to lightning bombs and traps. Finally, Thunder God Raiden focuses on high damaging combos.

Raiden’s announcement was accompanied by a two minute gameplay trailer (above) that shows off some of his moves, a painful looking X-ray attack, and his eye-popping, skull-exploding fatality.

The total number of confirmed characters for the game now stands at seven, and includes Cassie Cage, D’Vorah, Ferra & Torr, Kotal Kahn, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Raiden.

Mortal Kombat X is set to launch in 2015 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
