Being the 2nd character to be released in Fighter Pack 2, The God of Thunder, Raiden is coming out strong with the hype game! The trailer also features many moves included among his variations in Mortal Kombat X. Questions still remain as to which moves will be exclusive to gear abilities or his trait. One current theory is that his trait will be his teleport. In regards to the concerns for balancing, this is quite possible. One thing that can be agreed on is that his super is epic beyond words. Witnessing a giant dragon comprised of lightning wreck havoc on Brainiac is just something you’ll want to keep coming back to this video for.

Another bonus included for those who purchased the Ultimate Edition of Injustice 2 will be a premiere skin of Black Lightning. For those not familiar, premiere skins change the appearance, name, and voice of certain characters while still retaining their play style. This is a very smart move on NetherRealm’s part due to the negative feedback among the community for adding another Mortal Kombat character to the roster.

Raiden/Black Lightning will be available for download in October. Be sure to keep a lookout for NetherRealm Studios’ WatchTower streams to get more information on how this character will play.
