Raiden is officially coming to Injustice 2 next week

While Injustice 2 guest character Raiden has been available on Xbox One via an error since early this week, he’s yet to actually be released officially. Now however, we know when he’ll finally be released officially on all platforms, including PlayStation 4.

During the most recent Watchtower stream, NetherRealm Studios confirmed that Raiden will be officially released for Ultimate Edition owners this coming Tuesday, October 3. Meanwhile, everyone else will be able to play (or purchase) him on Friday, October 6.

Now while this is the first time that an official release date has been given for Raiden, his release was originally listed as October 10 in the Microsoft Store. This has led some to believe that NRS has pushed his release up for all platforms a week early in response to the early release on Xbox One.

Whatever the case may be, it seems that we’ll finally all get to see Earthrealm’s thunder god in action against DC characters next week. In the meantime, here’s a recording of Raiden’s breakdown by 16bit from the Watchtower stream.
