Raiden revealed for Mortal Kombat X - watch out for that fatality!

Mortal Kombat X Full Logo 1

Raiden returns in the next Mortal Kombat game due out in 2015 and he is more badass than ever – the video showcases his new move sets and fatality.

As one of the main characters in the series of Mortal Kombat games, it was inevitable that Raiden would appear in NetherRealm Studios' next instalment of the franchise. But with the altered combat system of Mortal Kombat X, where each fighter comes with three different combat styles, what will Raiden’s be, and how does he look? In the video below from IGN both of those questions are answered and we get a glimpse at his Thunder God, Displacer and Storm Lord move sets.

The video contains strong violence, of course, it’s a Mortal Kombat game, so don’t watch if you’re not too keen on blood or x-ray views of internal organs being smashed about.

The same footage is below, except this time it has director Ed Boon speaking about what you’re seeing.
