The Kahnum has returned! Fan-favorite fighter, Mileena, is making her way to Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.
Real quick before we talk about her ferocious fighting style, let’s do a lore recap. After the death of Shao Kahn in the 2011 reboot of Mortal Kombat, Mileena took over the title of Kahnum. Just like Mileena herself, her rule was chaotic, and she was deposed by Kotal Kahn. She attempted to win her throne back but failed. Mileena was then executed by D’Vorah with a bug-filled smooch that will not be winning best kiss at any Hollywood award show. Thanks to Kronika’s meddling with time, Mileena is back and looking to control the hourglass’ power. She wants to rewrite history and create the world she believes she was born to rule.
“A million souls have cried out for my return.” —Mileena
If you’re a fan of Mileena from any era, you will love how she plays here. First off, Mileena now has a sharp set of claws to slash through her opponents. Mileena’s base moveset can be likened to Klassic Mortal Kombat II with all of the core moves that you’d expect, including her trademark sai and her ball roll for starters. Her core moveset also includes the teleport kick, which when amplified ends as a throw and allows you to choose which direction to toss your opponent. For fans of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, look out for a fun Easter egg, her UMK3 Kombo is back!
Mileena gains new moves in her custom abilities. She has a new command grab that turns your opponent’s head into a pin cushion, a player-controllable sai that travels across the ground and the Kahnum dash, a slide that can be amplified TWICE!
We’re also debuting a few skins different skins for Mileena:
Dangerous Allure (above) — A modern reimagining of Mileena’s Klassic ninja outfit, and her main skin.
