No, not that Raiden. The other God of Thunder Raiden. He’s been a competitor since the debut of the game back in the arcade era and has always been a fan favorite. Ed Boon, creator of Mortal Kombat, recently revealed Raiden as the next official fighter as well as a variety new features for him.
In the below interview with IGN, you can watch Ed Boon describe three different styles of fighting one could use with Raiden. Of course his teleporting, electric shocks and flying are all back, but the power has been increased tenfold. And as always, a gruesome fatality is always welcome. Watch the video below to get the insight on Raiden’s return in Mortal Kombat X. We can only hope the next fighter to be revealed is up for a challenge.
