Mortal Kombat 11 — through Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate — is lastly including Mileena as a DLC character alongside Rain and Rambo. Mileena is among the most iconic and common characters within the collection, so many followers have been confused about why NetherRealm Studios left Kitana’s sister from the game’s roster at launch. And this confusion and outrage solely grew the extra DLC characters have been added that weren’t Mileena. That mentioned, the Mileena drought is nearly over.
According to MK11 inventive director and Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon, NetherRealm Studios determined to hit pause on Mileena so as to construct some appreciation and anticipation. And on the time that the choice was made, the crew had no concept the response can be as intense as it has been.
“You know, Mileena was one of the first characters from Mortal Kombat 1 and 2,” mentioned Boon. “There were Sub-Zero and Scorpion and on the other side was Katana and Mileena, and they were the kind of classic adversaries over the years of Mortal Kombat, and so we’ve represented, continued their story, and we hit pause on Mileena just to create an appreciation. But we had no idea it would be this intense. For years we were getting pounded – ‘I want to see Mileena again’. We just stretched that out as we knew she was on her way.
“So I started teasing a little bit more. I wouldn’t be doing that if I knew that she was eventually going to show up, so it was just a big build-up. You know we played with it a little bit. Eventually, we knew that we were going to be releasing a video like we did and just let the floodgates lose and that’s what we witnessed – this pent-up anticipation for Mileena and all of a sudden online we saw the results of it.”
What’s notably fascinating about this Ed Boon quote is that he notes he would not have teased the character and its fan if the DLC plan did not embrace Mileena. And that is one thing that could be value protecting in thoughts for future DLC characters. Boon is not going to tease a personality with no payoff. So, in the event you see him teasing a personality, it is most likely a nod and wink at them coming.
That mentioned, for MK11, there isn’t any Boon teases unaccounted for. This is not to say there will not be any extra DLC fighters, however quite that they may come as full surprises, assuming Boon would not begin teasing between now and there reveal.
At the second of publishing, neither WB Games nor NetherRealm Studios have mentioned something about any extra DLC characters after Mileena, Rain, and Rambo, however the rumors, leaks, and hypothesis all recommend the roster occasion is not over fairly but.
Mortal Kombat 11 is obtainable through the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia, and shortly it is going to be obtainable through the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.
