He was first unveiled in a live trailer screening during the 2014 Evo World Championships [full story], before this week being featured in another trailer, narrated by Ed Boon! Now you can take a closer look at the most electrifying fighter coming to Mortal Kombat X in his static form - yes! It's Raiden!

The Thunder God returns in his traditional role as protector of Earthrealm, but as revealed in the latest trailer, that's becoming a lonely position! Be it by his own folly during the plot of Mortal Kombat (2011), or new developments in the 25 year timeline of Mortal Kombat X - Raiden has found himself short on allies!

Newcomer Kotal Kahn will clearly pose a threat to Raiden's peace - revealed to be the newest conquering Emperor of Outworld! It's a good thing Raiden looks as good as ever! His new outfit modifies the now classic, blue sashed designs of Mortal Kombat 4 and its modern sequels. Gold trim and a stylized, Japanese storm motif compliments the look with finesse!
