NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon has made a shocking reveal following the finals at EVO 2014. The Thunder God Raiden will join Scorpion and Sub-Zero as a returning character in Mortal Kombat X.

The announcement came with a new gameplay trailer, showing Raiden’s three distinct fighting styles: Thunder God, Displacer and Storm Lord.

Thunder God looks like Raiden’s traditional fighting style, with lots of thunder bolts and fast combos. Displacer, as the name suggests, is all about teleportation and avoiding the enemy’s attacks. And finally, Storm Lord is a less direct fighting style, where Raiden baits his opponent into lightning traps.

Of course, Raiden still has his signature moves across all three styles, like the flying tackle and his electrifying Fatality. Watch the trailer below, posted online by IGN.
