Cries of “put Mileena in the game!” had been lastly silenced when Netherrealm introduced the fan-favorite’s return in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. As nice because it’s been to look at Rain and Rambo tear it up, Mileena’s gameplay may be probably the most superb (learn: goriest) sight to behold.
Shang Tsung created Mileena on the behest of Shao Kahn by combining Edenian and Tarkatan DNA. This bittersweet fusion bestows on her the bodily grace and near-identical look of Kitana in addition to the bloodthirst and horrifying visage of Baraka. Mileena final appeared in Mortal Kombat X and…didn’t make it by way of that sport’s story, we’ll say. Thanks to Kronika’s time journey magic, nevertheless, the previous Kahn will get introduced ahead to the current day. After studying of her reign and grisly dying by the hands of D’Vorah and Kotal Kahn, Mileena’s out to reclaim her throne.
Based on the trailer, it seems like Netherrealm dialed Mileena’s viciousness as much as about 19. The new twists on her signature sai assaults look nice, they usually’re bolstered by a Sonic-style spin assault and even Reptile-like invisibility. Her insane and absurdly graphic fatality in all probability ranks among the many sport’s bloodiest which says so much. Mileena seems like a blast to play particularly for those who’re an fanatic for throat-ripping and eye-gouging. Those elevating their arms ought to in all probability maintain that to themselves.
