We're still reeling from the exciting Rambo Kombat Kast put on by NetherRealm Studios earlier this week, but even a star as big as Rambo was not able to fully elbow out mentions of who very well may be the most anticipated addition to Mortal Kombat 11 yet: Mileena.

The Kombat Kasts are hosted by Tyler Lansdown, Stephanie Brownback, and Derek Kirtzic, NetherRealm Studios' Community Manager, Senior QA Analyst, and Senior Systems Designer, respectively. Mileena happens to be a favorite of Kirtzic's, and he and his co-hosts made mention of two of her traditional techniques that will return as part of her toolkit this time around.

Early in the show, Kirtzic brings up how excited he is to get back to finally playing Mileena once she drops, which will be a part of the Kombat Pack 2 release on November 17.

While the team is describing Rambo's second variation, which is characterized by three seemingly strong options to control the air and ground space, Lansdown takes a bit of a jab at Kirtzic and his tendencies to lack patience and jump a whole lot during play.

"So I'm thinking that when I play against Derek I should be using a log that controls the air, like that might be trouble," he starts. Kirtzic then quickly responds with what sounds like a confirmation that his future main, Mileena, will have her roll attack back here in MK11.

"And the ground, because I'm just going to roll," he responds, seemingly alluding to their future Rambo vs. Mileena bouts. Both Lansdown and Brownback then agree that their fellow NRS developer will be resorting to his traditional rolling ways, but that they will likely wind up seeing him roll into Rambo's claymore mines more often than not.

As the Kombat Kast is concluding, Kirtzic playfully jabs back at Lansdown as he references the fact that the latter's non-MK11 Twitter posts have recently been overtaken with avid fans asking when Mileena's character trailer would drop. While Lansdown tries to stay as tight lipped as possible, Kirtzic does directly ask whether or not we're going to see Mileena's teleport in her trailer.

"I will say yes," responded the NRS Community Manager. While the inclusion of these two legacy attacks may not be all that surprising to those who have been following Mileena's progression over the years, this does give us just that much more information about the highly-anticipated character.

You can see these interactions for yourself via the Kombat Kast archive. The first is around the 29:11 mark and the second is around 37:37.
