While we knew that he was going to play an integral part of the game’s storyline, it wasn’t completely clear is Raiden was going to be playable in the new Mortal Kombat
. Thanks to a new trailer from NetherRealm Studios, we now now that the God of Thunder will be playable and as powerful as ever.
The latest character trailer for Mortal Kombat highlights the Thunder God Raiden and his unique brand of brutality. I really like what I see in the trailer below; it appears as though Raiden may play different than he has in any of the previous games. Now that I have gotten my hands on the game via the demo and have learned a bit about the new gameplay system, I am excited to see how his moves will feel in the new scheme. The idea of incorporating his Superman maneuver into various combos could yield some devastating results.
The trailer also gives us our first glimpse at Sheeva, who had previously been rumored for the game. Granted, she doesn’t appear in any gameplay screens, but her image is shown amongst other characters that we know to be playable. This roster is looking very impressive...
