It's Mortal Monday again and some new Mortal Kombat assets are starting to trickle in. This time a wallpaper of what appears to be part of a Raiden fatality is up on the Mortal Kombat Facebook Tab and in the GameStop Widget. Here is a preview of said Wallpaper below:



Thanks to @nsayeed for the heads up. While this is clearly not the "big time announcements" that are expected this week, it's nice to see some love for our favorite God of Thunder, Raiden.

I'm glad they went with Raiden next instead of Kahn. It looks to be a pretty sweet fatality.

Hahaha, sorry! It's supposed to represent me being like "awwwww yeeeaahhh" lol! I'm just stoked they're finally going to show Raiden in gameplay!! Renders are nice but but seeing him in-engine and represented in real-time, in a match is a whole new ballgame.

Raiden <3 This made my day.

Woohoo, Raiden! How "electrifying!"
February 28th, 2011 3:04 PM CST - VictorMefer
Oh, wow, another wallpaper... At least it's Raiden. Finally, after a wait of 8 months, we're finally going to see Raiden's in-game model *whee*! :marchmellow:

His in game model was already revealed. But his gamplay.... mmmmmm.... I hope we get a vid today. I really doubt this is what they are going to give us for Mortal Monday. They have never considered any of the shadow pics the update for any of the other characters. It'd just be a cop out this time around.

"Thousands of years ago in a battle with the fallen Elder God known as Shinnok, I was responsible for the death of an entire civilization. To rid all realms of Shinnok's menace I waged a war that plunged the Earth into centuries of darkness and banished Shinnok into a place called the Netherealm. Now after Shao Kahn's defeat at the hands of Earth's warriors, Shinnok has managed to escape his confines in the Netherealm. The war is now being fought once again. Only this time it can be won by mortals." - The words of Raiden

Shocking Pic Bro. I wonder if they'll explode after they get electrocuted ?

That made me want to cry. Anywho I hope his alternate is his evil looking costume from Armageddon.

Does it say it's Raiden? Remember Stryker's fatality has a tazer involved. I still believe it is Raiden though.
February 28th, 2011 3:54 PM CST - Doc
This is easily the coolest shadow wallpaper we've gotten. And sometime in the next week or two we'll be getting Raiden gameplay. So, uh...f*ck yes.

LOL @ the Raiden puns. In the words of Philip J. Fry - "I am shocked! SHOCKED! Well, not that shocked.."

Would be kinda funny if it was stryker. Lots of people would get piiiissed and Boon would just be sitting there with a stupid smile on his face!

finally I was wondering when we would get Raiden's stuff as well as cage and the others that have been announced.

YES! Time for the slew of raiden kontent! This calls for the most epic Raiden moment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9wOHJa-GgI

I hope that this picture indicates that this is one of the best fatalities that Raiden has had.

@<-<-<- lp This is Raiden. Unless they gave Stryker Raiden's staff, I don't see a tazer delivering thunder bolts

The GameStop widget has been updated. It now has Raiden's fight stance and a new wallpaper showing his Fatality in it.
March 7th, 2011 8:08 PM CST - Immortal Reaver
Thanks! I liked his face better in the reveal trailer, it looks cartoony in this wallpaper. Hopefully it's not like that in-game. Still a cool wallpaper.

Thanks for the find For those that don't have facebook:

That's pretty f*cking boss. I'm looking forward more to Friday when we'll hopefully get some footage of him in action finally.
March 7th, 2011 8:11 PM CST - Osmodius
Awesome. +1 for the link =)
March 7th, 2011 8:15 PM CST - n9195v

This wallpaper is f***ing incredible! Using it as wallpaper now
March 7th, 2011 8:37 PM CST - pgd42
It looks like he makes people crumble into ash which I think could be even cooler looking than them blowing up in gore. Either way that just looks awesome

YEEEESSSSS!!! He has the lightning zapping around him again! And it is weird seeing Raiden with a hint of a 5 o'clock shadow in the wallpaper but I actually like it, makes him look more badass!
March 7th, 2011 11:53 PM CST - Etryus
His design is awsome! He got back his MK II rice hat!
March 8th, 2011 8:46 AM CST - UZI

March 8th, 2011 4:23 PM CST - Craig Dobson
