Mileena Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate review: A glorious return but be ready to commit if you want to play her properly

Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate is now in the hands of the masses, but if Ed Boon's Twitter feed is any indicator, all fans care about right now is Mileena. The classic, ravenous ninja is back in full form in Mortal Kombat 11, and there's a lot to love here for old and new Mileena heads.

I've gone ahead and spent some time playing as Kitana's ferocious sister in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, and what I've found is that she definitely looks, sounds, and plays the way you'd want Mileena to.

Before you face off with Mileena in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, you should watch this upsetting second Fatality

We more than likely don't need to tell you that Mortal Kombat 11 got its "Ultimate" makeover yesterday as the game updated with three new characters, balance changes, mechanical alterations, and more. Much more importantly than all that, however, is that we now have footage of Mileena's second Fatality.

RajmanGaming HD posted the particularly gnarly kill sequence along with her other fatal ender, and we'll just say it has to do with taking someone's face... off. It also happens to be performed on Robocop who indeed makes a face that looks a whole hell of a lot like Nick Cage's in the banner from the 1997 classic Face Off. Also NSFW violence and gore ahead.
