Raiden returns in Mortal Kombat X

Raiden is one of the most iconic Mortal Kombat characters, ever, and has appeared in every Mortal Kombat game it is to no surprise that our favorite thunder god and protector of the earthrealm will be making a reappearance in Mortal Kombat X.

Just last week at the Evolution Fighting Game Championships, Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios took the stage to show off the Raiden announcement trailer for MKX.

Bryan Dawson of Prima Games states, "While Raiden retains a familiar look and feel, he has quite a bit of variety between his three fighting styles. Just like every other character in Mortal Kombat X, Raiden has a few universal special moves that he can use no matter which fighting style you choose to play with. At the moment, these special moves are his Superman (Torpedo) special that works on the ground or in the air, and his electricity projectile. Other than these special moves, his three fighting styles vary quite a bit".
