UPDATE – IGN has just shared the trailer on their YouTube channel. We’ve added it to the article below.

With the world’s eyes on Evo 2014 and a new Injustice: Gods Among Us champion crowned, NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive took the opportunity to unveil the latest addition to the Mortal Kombat X cast: the Thunder God himself, Raiden.

The announcement was made by series co-creator Ed Boon, who gave fans an extensive look at the character in the form of a trailer, showing a match between Raiden and previously revealed newcomer Kotal Kahn. Many of Raiden’s signature moves from past incarnations return, and a new fatality was shown off for the old favorite. Raiden joins fellow veterans Sub-Zero and Scorpion, as well as fresh faces like Cassie Cage and D’Vorah.

Mortal Kombat X is slated for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC sometime in 2015.
