Building off yesterday's release of a new Shao Kahn render: NetherRealm Studios has shared a new image of Raiden, spotlighting the Thunder God's latest armored attire. Update: The full-size render has officially been released and can be seen with the smaller preview below.

Raiden's new gear was first glimpsed in the Mortal Kombat 11 Announce Trailer and again in the first official gameplay screenshots. It shows a slick new armored style for Raiden, who is in possession of Shinnok's amulet and has incorporated the powerful talisman into his chest gear.

The new image was shared via the MK11 Discord channel and offers just one glimpse at Raiden in the new game. Mortal Kombat 11 will boast extensive customization options that will allow fans to take creative control of their favourite fighters.
