Rounding out Mortal Kombat 11’s Kombat Pack 2 (and included in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate) is Mileena. Joining Rain and Rambo, we’ve known about the dual sai-wielding assassin for weeks, yet today we finally have NetherRealm’s gameplay trailer showing off what gruesome moves she’ll bring into a fight.

 

 

The product of Shang Tsung’s diabolical cloning experiments, Mileena is a fusion of Tarkatan blood and Edenian physiology, making her the perfect blend of Baraka’s ferocity and Kitana’s athletic grace. The evil hybrid benefits from the strengths of both bloodlines in battle, utilizing extraordinary speed, nimble acrobatic prowess and terrifyingly raw savagery, along with her trademark sai, sharpened claws and new twists on her classic special moves.

Brought forward in the timeline by Kronika, Mileena has learned of her tragic future – her brief reign as Outworld’s Empress and her death at the hands of D’Vorah and Kotal Kahn. Determined to regain her throne, Mileena has begun Outworld’s civil war anew and will destroy any Kombatants that stand in her way.

 

Despite not being part of the game’s initial roster, it’s fitting that Mileena can join the fray in Kombat Pack 2 since she debuted in Mortal Kombat 2 (stylized as Mortal Kombat II). It’s a nice way to bookend her journey so far within the Mortal Kombat universe. 

You can pick up Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate and/or Kombat Pack 2 on Tuesday, November 17th for Nintendo Switch and other platforms.
