Raiden Strikes like Lightning in Mortal Kombat X

Netherrealm shows an in-depth look at Raiden’s electrifying attacks in Mortal Kombat X.

NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat X, the newest in their long-running series of gory, graphic fighting game adventures, is looking pretty intense. Anyone who remembers the footage shown back at E3 will remember how much impact each bone-breaking strike had, and just how brutal to watch each second of the game was. Today, we get another look into what’s in store for your blood-soaked knuckles in Mortal Kombat X.

NetherRealm’s Ed Boon sits down with the entirety of YouTube (I guess that’s how that works, right) to show us Raiden. This master of electricity has been a MK standby since the original, but it’s always important to see how these things change and evolve over time. Raiden has a whole new arsenal of moves up his sleeve, and is ready to strike the same place twice, thrice, or however many times gets the job done.
