New MK Character Vignette Explains Rain’s Bitterness

on July 15, 2011 8:00 PM

I remember Rain from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, but I barely know anything about him. In fact, on the whole, I think I know less about the MK lore than any other fighting series, partly because it’s a bit complicated. Anyway, this newly released vignette explains the origins of Rain, the next DLC character for Mortal Kombat.

In all honesty, I think his story falls a bit flat. Summarily, he joined Shao Kahn to gain revenge on his faction for not giving him adequate authority. I find that kind of laughable considering he’ll always play second banana for Shao Kahn, but oh well. Rain will be available for download on both versions of Mortal Kombat on July 19th. Hit the break for the vid.
