Rain's Vignette video has just been released. The purple Edenian ninja, who betrayed his Realm and joined Shao Kahn is the third out of four currently announced DLC Kharacters The release date for Rain is July 19th. From the official press release we also learned witch fighters are getting additional costumes:

The third of four new downloadable warriors, Rain will be available on Microsoft Xbox LIVE for 400 Microsoft Points or $4.99 on PlayStation Network starting on July 19th. Rain will be available on the same date for users who have purchased the Microsoft Season Pass.

i am on rains side... it is extreamly unfair that he can fight better than some of the leaders but doesnt get to control part of the edenian resistance military...

But betraying them wasn't exactly the wisest decision either.

Being a better fighter doesn't make you a better leader and strategist. Besides the MK Warriors are not the most rational beings in the video game business :D

With effort, Kenshi is quite deadly. In the hands of a spammer, it's hell.

But as for rain, I have a feeling he's going to be the ultimate spam killer. His array of moves should provide a reasonable counter against constantly-spammed attacks, at least from what I've seen in the video.

I just hope that he will be more balanced than he was in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3/Trilogy. Talking about spam hell. His Lightning infinite was so lame in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. No one could escape it.

Waterball, two HPs, another waterball, roundhouse, roundhouse, lightning, roundhouse, uppercut.

That's about over 60% damage right there, but MK9 has been pretty good in terms of character balance. Of course some characters have advantages over others, and Rain will come with his weaknesses and strengths, but that's what makes Mortal Kombat, Mortal kombat.

Has anyone noticed that his second fatality where he breaks the legs and cuts the head off that is nearly the exact same fatality that Quan Chi has, the On Your Knees one?
About spamming, I have know idea how I'm to at least counter them, I'm actually just a masher, meaning I have no idea what the hell I'm doing. Just asking, is it bad to exploit glitches?

The fatality is similar, yes, but so are others.

Of course it is bad to exploit this kind of stuff. Online matches are about skill and proving how good player you are. Using glitches proves exactly the opposite during Online matches. Single player is a whole other thing.

On the other hand,, you can be a great player, have great tactics. And then, someone who uses the unbalanced aspects of the game comes and you can do nothing, and the other is in fact a lot worse than you.

Fighting games are about strategy and reaction to the opponents tactics, similar to a chess game. Spamming, even in a casual match only gives you the victory and nothing else. It doesn't make you a better player.

Please note: With you I don't really mean you exactly, I mean the person who spams and exploits in general.
