NetherRealm Studios has released a trailer for Rain, the newest downloadable fighter to join the battle for Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat.
Rain started life off as a fake character placed by the developers in Mortal Kombat's attract mode. Fans chose to ignore the obvious Purple Rain Prince reference and spent a great deal of time trying to figure out how to unlock him to no avail.
Eventually the 'prince' of Edenia was included as a playable fighter in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.
As you'll see from the trailer below Rain shares moves with a few of the other ninja characters, predominantly Noob Saibot, with all his specials given a dripping water effect.
Mortal Kombat players can get classic Noob and Smoke skins for free when they download the second free Mortal Kombat Compatibility Pack, which is available now.
