NetherRealm Studios has released a character vignette / story trailer for next weeks Mortal Kombat
DLC character, Rain. The purple ninja has a deeper background than I was aware of; I always though he was just a purple pallette swap of Scorpion. How great would it have been to here the trailer’s narrator stating something along the line of the following:
“Ed Boon and company had dreams of expanding their roster for the next Mortal Kombat but had run out of ideas. In a last ditch effort, a young artist in the development studio took out a sharpie and colored in an aging sketch of Scorpion. The resulting character looked just like the Scorpion that we all knew and loved, only he was PURPLE. Thus, Rain was born”.
"I keed, I keed..." Rain’s storyline is actually much deeper than that and his persona has quite a bit of drama behind him. Check it out:
