Mortal Kombat X's Raiden Pops the Eyes of His Opponents

Everyone’s favourite lampshade sporting sparrer Raiden is unsurprisingly making a comeback in upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 sequel Mortal Kombat X – and his hat looks sillier than ever. As revealed at the EVO Championships over the weekend, the Thunder God comes equipped with three gnarly styles, each focusing on alternative electrocution-based attacks.

In addition to the usual roster of bone breaking moves, the silver haired star also treats us to one of his fatalities, which sees the eyes of his opponent – an unfortunate Kotal Kahn – removed from their sockets and vaporised. This extends the title’s roster to seven, with favourites such as Scorpion and Sub-Zero already confirmed. The title’s due out next year.

That's kind of why I've been preaching against cross-gen. I understand from a business perspective that throwing a 160 mil userbase out the window is probably insane given today's gaming market. At the same time, developers have to move on eventually and both the PS4 and Xbox One are selling at a good rate. It's too late to lament the decision at this point but hopefully NetherRealm's next game (I'd guess Injustice 2?) will be PS4, X1, PC. That's a ways off though and I'd be lying if I said I'm not still hyped big time for this game as I loved MK 9.
