Let us dance! Mileena returns in Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay trailer


Sisters are doing it for themselves

NetherRealm Studios has released the long-awaited, highly anticipated gameplay trailer for the TRUE Outworld Kahnum - that minx of mischief, the sultry sai-thrower, the teleporting Tarkatan, and the source of a thousand and one abominable death threats. It's Mileena, of course.

Making her debut in 1993's Mortal Kombat II, Mileena is the pseudo twin-sister of Kitana, created in the Flesh Pits of evil sorcerer Shang Tsung in order to provide Shoa Kahn with the bloodthirsty daughter he so desired. Mixing her sister's DNA with Tarkatan blood gives Mileena her sister's stunning beauty, mixed with the razor blade smile and feral aggression of the Tarkatan race.

Rising above her status as a mere "experiment," Mileena would go one to become ruler of Outworld following the death of Shao Kahn, before meeting a gruesome end at the hands of the Outworld Rebellion, led by Kotal Kahn and the sly D'Vorah. Having found her way back into the world of the living thanks to Kronika's time shenanigans, Mileena is out on her own... and out for revenge...

Honestly, I think NRS has outdone themselves here. Mileena looks awesome from a design standpoint and her movement and flow is addictive. She looks like she's going to be a lot of fun to play. Mileena was my main squeeze during the Mortal Kombat X years, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what psycho sicko brings to the table in MK 11. Plus, we get that Mileena vs Rambo face-off the world has been crying out for. Yes, they have.

Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate launches on PC, as well as current and next-gen consoles, on November 17. This edition will contain MK 11 game, the Aftermath expansion, and both Kombat Packs. Players who already own Mortal Kombat 11 on PS4 or Xbox One will receive a free upgrade to PS5 or Xbox Series X should they pick up either next-gen platform.
