I've been excited for Rain since E3 2010. It's just a damn shame that it took THIS long to finally get him in. Get ready for the flood of "Ooh, Rain is my new favorite character" bandwagoners. LOL
July 11th, 2011 9:54 AM CST - Aquaman
Not exactly what I imagined, but he has everything I was asking for. Very good NRS!

I've been waiting so long for Rain!! I'm so happy he'll finally join the game. He should have been in it from the start but I'm happy he'll be playable soon.

What's gonna suck is not being able to use him online, because people don't download the compatibility pack... -Bill
July 11th, 2011 10:07 AM CST - Axe
I can already hear the 'he's my new main'! crowd running toward this thread salavating, only to abandon Rain two weeks after release. I'm over the bloody moon that he has his UMK3 moveset back!
July 11th, 2011 10:08 AM CST - Lawrence
Absolutely outstanding. The DLC becomes better each time they come out almost.

I could care less about using him online. As long as he's part or MK 9, and the Trilogy roster is complete, I'm happier than a pig in shit.
July 11th, 2011 10:24 AM CST - rekishiotaku
ok, so rain is straight up badass. His moves, a little silly, look like they will be really fun to use, especially the pacman physics punching he can do. I also like the x-ray
July 11th, 2011 10:28 AM CST - KillerBee
I'm so happy with Rain! Now MK Trilogy is complete! Aside from looking cool, he got his moveset from the old game! I was hoping for the lighting, that orb thingy and his roundhouse kick! Yay! <3
July 11th, 2011 10:35 AM CST - SpinerippingFun
About time! The roundhouse kick is in, the control bubble too. I haven't been this excited for a character since Kabal's reveal half an year ago. And his win pose, look at his hands, just like old Rain. I also wonder if that's his enhanced lightning or the regular one. I guess we'll see next week. Awesome.
July 11th, 2011 10:47 AM CST - R A I N I S M
His moves and, combo ability looks bad ass. I'm definitely hyped!
July 11th, 2011 11:01 AM CST - drapture17
He looks like a pretty strong character. By far the best cinematography of the bunch thus far.
July 11th, 2011 11:07 AM CST - Eks
Damn. It's like they ripped him straight from MKT.
July 11th, 2011 11:10 AM CST - ShortieTheRobot
I was SO tired of hearing about him but omfg he looks sick. Too bad EVERYBODY is gonna use him now ..... Oh well! I still am
July 11th, 2011 11:45 AM CST - krazyhugo
Not impressed...Just not impressed...Hoping for unmasked Subby as the accompanying klassic.
July 11th, 2011 11:49 AM CST - orbofuncreation
I'm not impressed at all: boring fighting style, recycled moves and the worst x-ray ever. Next please.

Give it about a week or so after his release..people won't be using him as much as you think. Look at Skarlett.. people said they were gonna main her as soon as they heard she was gonna be DLC. Now you hardly see her online lol. Same with Kenshi pretty much.
July 11th, 2011 11:51 AM CST - Asodimazze
Rain looks amazing! I really like him but....I don't think I'll use him more than Kenshi :P
July 11th, 2011 11:55 AM CST - AlistairWonderland
I like all the watery effects lol
July 11th, 2011 11:56 AM CST - GEO9875
Ugh.. crap ... too bad im not getting rain now cuz im broke..
July 11th, 2011 12:01 PM CST - UCFReiko
I am gonna get flamed for this most likely but oh well. I didn't like the fatalities. He looks awesome, his moveset looks fun, just not a fan of the fatalities. oh well I still love my Rain
July 11th, 2011 12:02 PM CST - Maximum Damage
Imho I'm not liking that he has all these special moves I just expected water bubble,roundhouse,and lightning. Not all thses other thimgs that open up opportunities for imbalances, nonetheless though he looks pretty epic.
July 11th, 2011 12:29 PM CST - musgrave999

I actually liked the first one a lot bc it goes back the exaggerated cartoony fatalities instead of the gory and serious ones in MK9. The dude gets inflated by water common lol

I dont understand this either. I mean if you cant get the DLC characters cause youre broke thats fine. But who on this earth turns down free Klassic Kostumes? Doesnt make any sense.

I was impressed so cant agree with you there. But I too am awaiting MK3 Sub as an alt for Cyber Sub Zero and I think MK3 Sonya or MK2 Shang Tsung will accompany him.
July 11th, 2011 12:39 PM CST - Ermac210
The original Rain is back! Hell Yeah! Maybe will be the first DLC character I'll buy D: looks crazy and fun to play. I suffer with the X-Ray lol

I thought his X-Ray was bad ass. And one of the more realistic looking ones. The way that arm snaps and just flops there is exactly how it looks in real life. As someone who has broke both of my arms when I was younger that X-Ray made me cringe like no other has.

They should have just made them mandatory... From what I understand, the main reason they didn't was due to the fact that some people don't have harddrives for the XBox 360, therefore, those people wouldn't ave been able to play online at all. Other reasons I can think of for not downloading them? People are either too lazy to, or they don't have enough room on their harddrive and don't want to delete something. Really, though, any of those excuses is weak... The "not having a harddrive" excuse doesn't apply to PS3, so I don't see why PS# couldn't be a mandatory update. As for not having enough space on your drive, if MK isn't important enough to free up the space somehow, maybe you shouldn't be playing online to begin with. MK is the only game I know of that you can buy something, but not be able to use it online, because the person you are playing with/against doesn't have it. it's pretty much BS, IMO. -Bill
July 11th, 2011 12:49 PM CST - The_Cold_Kombatant
Hate his intro. Rather flamboyant. But, overall, he looks alright.
July 11th, 2011 12:50 PM CST - Section_25
Can't wait to add him to the collection !!!:rock:
July 11th, 2011 12:52 PM CST - Kurtis Stryker
Oh great. Another teleport heavy character, who happens to be a ninja. That's a new one! I never cared for Rain before this game, and this game isn't going to make me care about Rain. To me, Rain is the free DLC character in my season pass. I'm looking forward to the 4th DLC character. That said, Rain's fatalities look sweet.

Very much agree with all of that. Hopefully NRS will listen to the fans the true Hardcore MK fans and make these packs mandatory. Theyre pretty good about listening and trying to fix things to keep us happy. I mean we got Rain after everyone *****ed about him not being in. Maybe when this 4th DLC drops they'll make one big compatibility patch that you have to download to play online. So then itll fix this problem with one fell swoop. And these packs barely take up any space so it just doesnt make sense why you wouldnt download them.

Lol Rain Was Super Killa. Man I always loved his character and gameplay. Idc to play with him online, because i didnt buy this game for the online mode, that would be stupid lol. Anyways imma murk me some spammers A$$ wit him hahaha.

Rain is a ninja, a teleport heavy ninja, which means he will probably be super easy to punish...
July 11th, 2011 1:14 PM CST - Captain-DC
RAIN, Oh Yeah... Water Moves who figured... LOL Now all we can ask for is they start to give these DLC characters alternate costumes as well with Rain needs his Klassic costume for sure! Make it so Boon! By: DCS
July 11th, 2011 1:16 PM CST - Nasty_Freak
Looks pretty cool but I'm not sure about that fatality where he makes the opponent swell up. It just doesn't look very serious enough. I hope Kitana's Kiss of Doom won't do that. But maybe I might get him, especially if Sonya's alternate outfit comes with him.
July 11th, 2011 1:25 PM CST - Guyver Spawn
Rain's gameplay looks awesome. I wonder if he is going to be the son of Argus or not? His story trailer should be out soon I hope.
July 11th, 2011 2:01 PM CST - Ricochetmatt
YES! That was fantastic! Rain looks beast. The water effects look great. ROUNDHOUSE KICK! And I'm glad to see they kept his lightning special. Only thing I was iffy on was his first fatality. The idea of it is great, but it looks a little cheesy.

Agreed RM but as cheesy as it is it gives me that nostalgic feeling. Like the first time I saw Kitanas Kiss of death fatality. And Ermacs pest control fatality is ridiculous as well and I hated it at first but really its classic MK. MK has always been over the top and in this game the brutality is really turned up to 11 so IMO it could use a few fatalities that are a little ridiculous.
July 11th, 2011 2:15 PM CST - Bmaga123
So are we getting Klassic Kostumes with Rain or not? Rain looks amazing by the way I cannot wait to give him a go.
July 11th, 2011 2:22 PM CST - drapture17
At around 0:37 when he's fighting Mileena, is this an Alt costume that I have not noticed yet or an easter egg for upcoming DLC costumes? Ignore, I just looked it up.
July 11th, 2011 2:39 PM CST - ASeriesOfTubes
I'm sooo getting him.
July 11th, 2011 4:08 PM CST - FuBi0
Darn, no intro lines. Oh well, he looks sweet! UMK3 win pose FTW! Hope nothing goes wrong this time. That roundhouse kick is enough to make even Chuck Norris flinch.
July 11th, 2011 4:10 PM CST - Vigilante_FireDragon
Not bad, and about damn time I see a X-Ray that goes for the arms. I seen too much leg, skull and rib breaking, but never seen anyone goes for the arms until now. His first fatality looks awfully funny.
July 11th, 2011 4:30 PM CST - Drakilla
I'm not vibing with Rain at all. He looks kind of dumb to be honest, like he's the first character whose a bit too cartoony for this MK and doesn't fit Though I wasn't a fan of Rain at all in past MKs so it's just my opinion. I found the part in the trailer funny when he's squirting Ermac in the face with water and Ermac's getting hurt. Reminded me of the Naked Gun movie when a guy throws a towel at Drebin's face and he starts screaming. Dude it's just water
July 11th, 2011 6:34 PM CST - ThisIsMadness91
Of course he'd be released the day I leave for Comic Con . Self-pity aside, he looks seriously badass, and I can't wait to play as him!
July 11th, 2011 6:45 PM CST - kergon
That looked amazing!! Fun moves and an inflating fatality!! :O
July 11th, 2011 6:46 PM CST - Tanyas Husband
His kombo's are kind of a mix of Noob & Reptile copies, I don't feel like buying him, but, I'll just play against him online before I buy him to get a sample. Fatalities are awesoem though, lol.
July 11th, 2011 6:55 PM CST - R A I N I S M
Ha to be honest I thought i'd see people more hyped about Rain.

July 11th, 2011 11:37 PM CST - Kobra
Little disappointed because of NO intro line what so ever, to make up for that they bought back all those old MKT moves he had. I am curious as to what kind of combos people are going to produce from this character.
July 11th, 2011 11:46 PM CST - battle_scarz13
DLC characters probably dont have dialogue because NRS would have to pay a voice actor to do the lines. Although I dont understand why they wouldnt just get a NRS team member to do it. Ed does scorpions voice.
July 12th, 2011 12:32 AM CST - DCR
Wow, they even brought back the super roundhouse. That's... well ****, it's awesome. I didn't expect him to have all his classic moves, but obviously he's actually going to have limitations on them this time, so it's definitely not a problem. I can't wait. I got bored of Skarlet and Kenshi pretty quick, but hopefully things will be different this time around.

I agree. I didn't like the second one, tho. I also wish they wouldn't show the Fatalities just for the suspense. Oh well.

I'm thinking Rain will have dialogue... They did hire a voice actor for him: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1386939/
Just cause you didn't hear him talk in the trailer, doesn't mean he won't talk ingame. Ed actually didn't do Scorpion's voice in MK9, according to IMDB... Guy named Patrick Seitz did. -Bill
July 12th, 2011 10:18 AM CST - Kintar027
I seriously love what they did with rain... i never liked rain, but his moves look so good and well done. i hate that they show the fatalitys in the trailer.... lol i close my eyes! But really for DLC they should be coming out with three or even four fatalitys rather then two.
July 12th, 2011 10:48 AM CST - Recon Number 54
Ed didnt voice scorpion Patrick Seitz did
July 12th, 2011 12:20 PM CST - Patrick McCarron
I think Ed just voiced Get Over Here, etc. The rest was Patrick, especially Story Mode, due to union rules.

There's actually pretty strict rules on voice overs, their union is pretty tough. You'll see a lot of famous people do one off voiceovers on cartoon shows get credited under fake names to avoid having to join the union for one gig. There was a pretty famous case of the guy who voiced Spike from Cowboy Bebop doing so under a fake name, and everyone had to pretend there were two guys with the same distinctive and recognizable voice as to not get him in trouble since he did commercials under his real name. I would imagine Ed gets a pass for "get over here" since it dates back to 1992 and the original MK so there's probably some sort of grandfather policy. You can tell any time Scorpion has any dialog that it's a different person doing the voice.

Rain looks great. Looking foward to him being added to the roster.
July 13th, 2011 3:14 AM CST - MajorWeirdo
Mmm... i'm a bit sceptic, I see some kind of noob teleport move, sektor teleport punch move and nightwolf lighting... I already thought that from the start it would be difficult to give em very different movesets... will have to test him...
July 13th, 2011 8:39 AM CST - xamoel
Cool.. Now i wanna wait for Reiko, Havik and Tremor maybe.
July 13th, 2011 3:01 PM CST - RaiNaz
Can't wait until the 19th. I love every single DLC character and I can't believe how much time and effort NRS has put into this game. Each character has a wallpaper, trailer, vignette, I'm just so impressed. If we get more than 4 characters, I will be so happy. Hotaru, Havik, Tanya, Drahmin would all make me happy but I'm not opposed to Kai, Khameleon, Sareena and Fujin either. I just don't want Shinnok, and would rather they save him for another game.
July 14th, 2011 3:41 AM CST - Corrupted333
Cant wait for some Rain!!!!! Been savin up points! I know i know why didnt i buy the season pass? Well Skarlett wasnt that big of deal to me so in the end ill still only pay 15 moneys cause im only buying the three characters i care about. That is if the last guy/girl after rain, is even worth it. Maybe ill go back and buy her later on for completionist sakes..i do love me some MK and its good to have a wide verity so the game doesnt get stale. But for now she doesnt matter to me and if i pay 20 in the future when i couldve just paid 15 now...well i really dont care i like to pay for my characters when i want them. it was nice to have the option though the season pass was very cool. But i had 5 dollars before i had 15 so...whatever.
July 14th, 2011 3:56 AM CST - TaBB3rnackle92
Does anyone have the word on when his vignette video will drop??
July 14th, 2011 9:09 AM CST - Hyr0ller
Trying to stay positive about this character until he drops, but not too excited for him compared to Kenshi. Just seeing too many borrowed moves. Also theres not much about a water based ninja that seems lethal. Just a little too jokey for my taste, but hopefully NRS will change my mind.
July 14th, 2011 12:28 PM CST - drivingblind666
His vignette trailer in case no one has seen it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yt0c7-niXXE I think he looks cool. But as someone said on Youtube he is pretty much a 'moist Noob Saibot' I do think he is unique with his water techniques, although I wish they would hire voice actors for the DLC's. I get tired of hearing just grunts with each of them. His fatalities look cool though. I give him points for being a purple ninja too! xD

Yes! One of my favorite characters has finally made it to the arena. I couldn't think of a funny enough Purple Rain joke so I'm very disappointed in myself.

Why is it everytime I see a thread about rain, I keep hearing "Nightwolf's lightning"? He's had that move since MKU3 (on the snes (because it was the best system in it's day) that is :P)!
