Mortal Kombat is celebrating 25 years of existence this month and to mark the occasion, it’s making an appearance in NetherRealm Studios latest fighter, Injustice 2.
Raiden also includes a special Black Lightning Premier Skin. Black Lightning is a character with his own CW show. People who have purchased one of the Injustice 2 special editions, like the Digital Deluxe or Ultimate Edition, or own the Fighter Pack #2 or Ultimate Pack add-on pass can use the thunder god. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until October 6.
My early impressions of Raiden is the gear doesn’t change the look too much, combos are fun to use and the special move is cool and a nice throwback to the Mortal Kombat. I personally prefer to use Black Lightning over Raiden.
Injustice 2 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and both Android and Apple iOS devices.
