Evo 2014: Raiden Stands Watch for Eternity in Mortal Kombat X

It was pushed to the back of the Injustice: Gods Among Us finals stream - and it was worth the wait! The reveal of the next Mortal Kombat X character signalled the electrifying return of Raiden! The teaser image quote pointed most toward the immortal protector god - a lightning laced Facebook update all but confirming it.

Raiden's fighting variations emphasize different recognizable abilities from his electric arsenal: Thunder God (Electrocution Kombos), Displacer (Teleportation) & Storm Lord (Lightning Traps). He demonstrates these abilities in battle with Kotal Kahn. Watch the trailer below:

Speaking to IGN, Ed Boon elaborated on the variations and story mode significance of the stalwart thunder god. They report a smaller outing for Raiden when compared to his central role of Mortal Kombat (2011).

On the story side of things, Raiden will still be a key figure, but not nearly as central to the overall plot as he was in Mortal Kombat 9. Events will actually pick up as earlier as five years after the events of the last game, going through several time periods until it reaches the 25-year-later era mentioned in earlier previews.

Displacer (teleporting) Raiden looked awesome.

Also really stoked to see how each of his hits were imbued with lightning, that was a very nice touch.

Oh how boring... He looks almost the same from always. They should have revealed anyone else... Tanya, Fujin, Shinnok...

God of Blunder.

Blunder blots out the sun. In this game Raiden must prevent anyone from doing something ever again.

Looks boring though, I hope we have alt costumes with the three version variation.

Pretty cool, but I would have his fatality end with the body exploding instead and letting the head with the shocked expression just roll around. The eyeballs were a nice touch for sure. I'll probably use his teleport variation the most when I pick him.

Raiden is my main besides Kung Lao. Loving his moves but I wanted to see fujin. This gives us nothing much to talk about since we already knew Raiden was in. Ed is really trolling and it's pissing me off.

Oh well, hopefully the next character reveal will be more interesting. At least the new Killer Instinct character reveal was cool.

Wasn't that medallion that never existed before the reboot, but the whole plot of MK9 was suddenly about, supposed to be kind of an important part of his wardrobe?

Because I can't help but notice that now that it doesn't matter anymore, he went right back to not wearing it.

His design is pretty standard but the teleporty variation looks fun.

His Fatality gave a full scotlandyard-on though!

Thanks to MINION for taking my Siginity!

After watching the vid again, I'm kind of wondering how the trap version will work. The trap looked really slow to deploy, so I'm thinking that maybe the meter burn version will be instant, because right now as is, it looks pretty worthless.

I would love to see his MK:DA alt make a return. I always thought that costume was his best.

Now that I think about it, I really wonder how the alt costumes are going to work since character variations sort of depend on the costume as well; for instance, storm raiden's hat is sort of glowy and electrified, so that would mean that all alts would have to include the hat.

Unless they go into enough detail that they figure out other ways to show which variation a character is whenever they are wearing different costumes.

Well he did fire just one orb earlier in the video, so maybe the trap itself is only set if you fire two of them? Otherwise if only one is used, it could just be a floating orb that damages upon contact.

Having serious difficulty controlling my hype for this game. I am going to struggle to wait. I feel like Cartman when he freezes himself to get a DS instantly

That makes sense. Seems like they are taking a lot of notes from Injustice. Those lightning orbs were pulled straight from Martian Manhunter's arsenal. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

It seems to me that the variations just ADD a color or item to the base model.

So Raiden could very well have an alt that's normally hatless EXCEPT for when you pick Storm Lord.

Nice reveal. I was waiting for Raiden, so I won't whine that its boring or "how they should've anounced someone else".
His costume looks nice, gameplay variations are interesting, especially one with electro barriers. Electricity effects are awesome. X-Ray is nice, Fatality is cool.
God of Thunder is here to staaaay, haters.
