Oh, like you didn't see this coming.
During the Evolution Championship Series in Las Vegas, NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon revealed a new fighter for the anticipated Mortal Kombat X : The legendary Thunder God, Raiden.
Each of the MKX characters will have three fighting styles available; you select one at the start of a match, and you're locked into it for the duration of that particular showdown. Raiden's three styles are Thunder God (a focus on flashy combos), Displacer (taking advantage of tricks and teleporting), and Storm Lord (Raiden can place lightning orbs as traps). Chances are, the in-your-face type of fighters will choose Thunder God, those who want to be tricky (and a little nostalgic) will go for Displacer, and the strategic planners might try Storm Lord.
Anyway, here he is in all his electrical glory:
