Raiden has been a staple feature of the Mortal Kombat series to date, and will feature in Mortal Kombat X alongside other returning favourites such as Sub-Zero and Scorpion. However, this time around he, and the other fighters, will have three distinct fighting style.
Raiden’s three styles - Thunder God, Displacer and Storm Lord – are shown in this gameplay video. Thunder God sees Raiden using electrocution kombos; Displacer relies on Raiden’s teleportation game for mix-ups; and Storm Lord utilises lightning traps.
The faint of heart should probably look away before the video ends with Raiden’s eye-poppingly vicious fatality. Mortal Kombat X will be released on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015.
