The Three Faces Of Mortal Kombat X Raiden

Is it odd that I'm less excited about the new characters coming in Mortal Kombat X next year than I am having three different versions of my old favorites, each with their own play style? Meet Combo Raiden, Mobility Raiden and Control Raiden.


Or Thunder God, Displacer and Storm Lord Raiden, if you want to get all official about it — either way, it's a triple play of electrical ouchies for whomever he finds himself up against.

I am a little worried spreading out the skills between three iterations of the same character will result in three less-than-optimal characters, but until I've gotten my greasy little paws on the game there's just no telling.



I don't fully understand this three-versions setup.

Maybe this is a stupid question, but: Can you switch between each variation of a single character on the fly (similar to the "fighting styles" in Deadly Alliance or Deception), or do you have to commit to a specific incarnation before the fight and stick with it?

Also, as a side note: Who do I have to fuck to get them to bring back Ashrah? Fucking LOVED that chick.
