Mortal Kombat's Raiden trailer sadly lacking evil

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.
