Mileena might very well be the DLC character that’s secured the most fan support for Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. Before her reveal, Ed Boon had been poking fun at Mileena fans due to the sheer volume of requests that he was receiving nearly every day on Twitter.
It seems that even Mileena herself is aware of her fan demand. In a clip released by NetherRealm Studios, Mileena seemingly breaks the fourth wall to reference the fans that have been making requests for her return in an intro dialogue with Erron Black.
“A coin for your thoughts, Erron?” Mileena begins the conversation with a confused Erron Black as he walks up to her.
“Just trying to reckon why the hell you’re back,” pondered Erron Black. This line of dialogue certainly makes sense as Erron Black was present for Mileena’s execution at the hands (or rather lips) of D’Vorah during the events of Mortal Kombat X.
“A million souls cried out for my return,” cheekily declared Mileena as she pointed one of her sai blades at Erron Black. Indeed, it’s probably fair to say that at least a million fans were delighted to see Mileena when Kombat Pack 2 was first announced.
At the conclusion of the clip, it was revealed that Mileena’s gameplay trailer is scheduled to debut sometime next week.
