Raiden joins Mortal Kombat X

Ed Boon took the stage at this year's Evo, following the Injustice: Gods Among Us finals, to reveal the latest character for Mortal Kombat X. And it's a returning familiar face, because Raiden is back and ready to bring the thunder once more!

Raiden's familiar moves are all in place, including his lightning traps and teleports. The gameplay video that debuted in front of a captive Evo audience also showed off some of Raiden's different play styles. ANd of course, there was a new Fatality on display, as Raiden grabbed his opponent's head and shocked it until his eyeballs literally popped out of his head. He then ripped the head off its shoulders, tossed it in the air, and blew it up with a lightning shot.

Check out the shocking gameplay below!
