Mortal Kombat’s Raiden trailer sadly lacking evil

Friday, 11th March 2011 04:41 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Before the movie retconned him to as a concerned and benevolent Christopher Lambert deity, Raiden’s role in the Mortal Kombat series was to fry everyone, everywhere, all the time. For fun.

Sadly, this bio trailer still insists the thunder god is a goody-goody two-shoes, but you can pretend otherwise. Hooray! Old school forever!

For unexplained reasons, the trailer also devotes quite some time to showing off the book ends you can score with the Kollector’s Edition. Happily, nobody tries to pretend the activities of the figures thereon are nice.

See it below. it’s electrifying. Sorry.

Thanks, Evil Avatar.

    They had an evil, Dark Raiden in MK Deception but every fan, their mother and their neighbor nagged the team about it and complained :(
    Still, love the end of fatality where he smashes opponents torso into the ground to crush the head.
