By on

Getting more and more excited about the upcoming Mortal Kombat X? Have you heard the latest about who?s who? Here?s what we got for you!

Ahead of it landing to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, Mortal Kombat X revealed through its newest trailer a character in the game that you would sure love ? Raiden.

In the trailer, you will notice that Raiden can use three different fighting styles which include the following: Thunder God, Displacer and Storm Lord.

?Thunder God. The first style shown focuses on flashy combos that incorporate several electric blasts. This makes Raiden more of an in-your-face sort of fighter as he needs to get in close to his opponent to deal serious damage.

Displacer. Raiden?s second style is all about tricks and teleportation. He can move all around the screen this way to quickly avoid enemy attacks and projectiles. He can also incorporate teleports into his combos.

Storm Lord. The final style shown for Raiden is centered around traps. In this style, Raiden has the ability to place lightning orbs on the screen. When Raiden is standing between two orbs, he can use a lightning attack to activate them, thus creating a bolt of lightning between the two that stuns opponents on contact. This style is much more indirect than the other two.?

Mortal Kombat X, developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with all new gameplay to deliver the most brutal Kombat experience ever.

For the first time ever, players are given the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. It is a fighting game where two players fight against each other using different attacks, and special moves. Plus, it will also allow players to use techniques such as X-Ray moves along with some refinements made to the system.
