He looks so awesome, What's wild to me is how different all 3 of his variations are from MKX. I wonder if most characters are going to be like that if they are returning from MKX? Sub's and Scorps are pretty different too.
If the beta has this roster I'm definitely playing Raiden. He not only looks awesome but looks like he's going to be very strong competitively too.
I'm so glad his projectile is a lightning bolt again and not a cosmic snowball like it had been for so many years. They've really done an amazing job with him this time, he looks great! He has so many cool new moves too. He and Sub-Zero are my favorites and they've given them both a lot of great new moves. If I had one complaint it'd be that the sound effect for his electric attacks still sounds weak and more like a laser than electricity or lightning, hopefully they change that too.
