Thats probably a generic background ninja.... with the awesome revamp of all the ninja characters (noob,ermac) i can't imagine that smoke would be this boring???

The gameplay looks great... but the more of these I see I think we are in for a real treat as far a the story goes. I heard the story has already been leaked, hackd from the demo, whatever.... I haven't read any spoilers so I'm pretty excited.

Raiden looks cool. I only have problem with his lighting ball - it looks a bit lame and not made of electricity (similar to Sindels' only in different color). Also the blast at the end of his X-Ray could have been bigger and stronger to have that "money shot" type of feel. But it's just nitpicking, I guess.

After Raiden's videos, we will be getting some Shao Kahn action, not very exciting but that's fine. April 19th is closer and closer everytime =]

I must admit I'm not too enthusiast about Raiden's moveset, it looks a little generic... Looks like there is some kind of trap in the middle of the Courtyard...

anyone else notice the big ass fire grill flame pit in the middle of the courtyard? stage fatality maybe?

The Aggie I disagree with you because that other ninja has a black suite, and it would seem strange that they would have guard ninja's look just like Smoke when they could easily give them a different look.

Also, did anyone notice in the Courtyard, that the masked guard follows the fighters as they move around the arena? It was a very interesting detail to me, where he could play a part in the game in the challenge tower just like Stunt Man, or even more. He already is seen in this video in the background with regular playable fighters. edit- Raiden's special move effects could change for the final game. They could be better than they are at the moment, but they aren't horrible.
