Has Skarlet effectively replaced Mileena in this game? Mileena, an evil Kitana, seems wasted in a game where Kitana is...evil. Yet I can't imagine NRS not having Mileena in the game.
I mean, they made it work in MKX. Unless Mileena's more serious like she was in MKX then she and Skarlet can coexist. (Cause Skarlet's kinda the serious crazy lady.). I have a feeling they're gonna make Mileena more playful/childish like her MK9 personality.

Disagree with the statement that Mileena is evil in the new timeline. I don't think we have much information to work with yet.

But it depends on what you mean by evil. In a universe where Shinnok and Quan Chi exist, everyone who doesn't want to exterminate or subjugate all life ends up looking much better by comparison. She certainly doesn't seem as crazy/unstable in MKX.

My comment was that Mileena is an evil copy of Kitana, but in a game where Kitana herself is evil (in her revenant form), maybe Mileena is redundant?

I see, you were focusing on the copy part, not the evil part. But I dont think she's an evil copy of Kitana in the new timeline. They hang around completely different sets of characters and take part in completely different storylines. Heck I'd say Tanya and Mileena have more in common now, and Jade and Kitana, than Kitana and Mileena.

I'm curious as to why they've separated them so much. They didn't have any interaction in MKX at all. After Kitana died, Mileena just did her own thing.

I'm glad they're making Mileena her own character though, but I would like some more interaction between the two if she's in MK11.

So... who's SHA? lol since both Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung are DLC.

I thought the Shang Tsung as an unlockable character theory was built upon the notion that base characters were given those achievements. But it seems people were wrong to assume things.

SHA didn't meant anything.

Gotta assume it was Shao Kahn then.

One thing that's got me confused now is the huge amount of achievements. Like, that's the only thing that makes me think the base roster can't be 25. There's gotta be more to it than that. Unless they've got achievements for later DLC characters which I just can't see being the case. Or if they just put 90 achievements on the Steam Database to trick people or what.

I don't know you guys, I think we should just wait and see. Plus the Krypt seems like it's a much bigger deal this time around and we can't just dispel the notion that we might get some unlockable characters from it. I can't just imagine it being skins, brutalities, and concept art. They're hyping it up to be something special.

with Shang being DLC and not a hidden character, what percentage do you give your girl Mileena for being hidden and what percentage for DLC? does his inclusion give you hope?

DLC: 0%
Hidden in Base Game: 65%

I still think she has the possibility of being in. There's just a lot to take into account that we just don't know for sure yet. There are the slots on the website, there's the huge amount of achievements, the subtle teases and hints towards her. (Not even including the fact that she's Derek's favorite character.)

I'm not losing all hope just yet. NOBODY knows anything at this point as to what the website slots are, the achievements, anything. Right now we just have to wait. The only thing we have to go on now is the fact that she's popular among fans and a favorite of some people in the studio, the fact that Ed Boon retweeted the Mileena fan art, and the fact that there are unlockable characters. (Whether it's more than one we won't know until we get it.)

Unless something else crops up, or there's more teases to her or something like that then we'll have to wait and find out.

It's Shao Kahn. He's on there regardless of DLC status because he's on the launch roster.

So we really think the Krypt is going to be worth 40+ achievements? Without there being unlockable characters in it?
No, not 40+. Just many more than it has been in the past.

Then add multiverse towers on top of that. NRS will be highly motivated to put a lot of achievements behind that because they want people to get hooked on the casual tower content.

The multiverse towers in Injustice 2 didn't have a lot of achievements (And we already have seen one of the achievements for the Towers as well as a few for the Krypt.) and there isn't anything really different with Towers of Time that wasn't in the Multiverse/Guilds in Injustice 2.

Btw, Daanish Syed confirmed on twitter that the guy in the menu's and the dude of the krypt are the same dude, and the he is NOT Rain. Chances of Rain being in the game just went down to almost nothing.

at least that finally puts the speculation over that bad quality screenshot to rest, I'm not gonna miss the rain and young kotal arguments.

~MINOR UPDATE~

They added the tag 'Sexual Content' onto the Steam Database for MK11.

Mileena konfirmed bois

I wish.
Can I get a bigger gif of this? It's that victory pose where it zooms in and you see her shark-like maw (before they retconned it to cute luscious lips)?

Nevermind, I found it on youtube!


Oh man..... this made me realize how much I miss when Mileena had that scary shark mouth. I hope she's back to that scary maw in MK11, or that it's at least customizable!
Yeah, I agree. I want that be one of her customizable things. Along with her hair, masks/veils and sais.
