EVO, that most prestigious of fighting game tournament-athons, took place this past weekend. Every punchtastic game from BlazBlue to Super Smash Bros. Melee was featured, as players from around the world joined together to beat the balls off of each other.
During all this happy funtimes violence, a few trailers and announcements were shown. Here we see the great badassery of Raiden, the Thunder God. Kicking butt, taking names and… leaving eyeballs dangling from faces by the optic nerve, like real manly heroes do.
Yep, Lord Raiden is a Mortal Kombat stalwart, appearing in almost every game in the series. So it’s probably not a shit-your-pants surprise to see that he’s returning in the upcoming Mortal Kombat X. In any case, it’s a little more gameplay for us to check out, so who’s complaining?
Those of us whose eyeballs aren’t adangle halfway down their damn cheeks should take a look. This battle with Kotal Khan showcases some new combos, a fancy-ass new arena and the differences between those character ‘variants’ we’ve heard about already.
