After living off scraps from Ed Boon’s Twitter handle, we’ve finally witnessed the announcement of the next chapter in the Mortal Kombat series. Mortal Kombat 1 follows the MK universe remade by Fire God Liu Kang after the events of MK11. There are no story details, but the announcement trailer gave us a few clues.
Trailer Reveals Mortal Kombat 1 Is A Timeline Reset, But Not A Full Reboot Liu Kang is now in charge and has recreated the MK Universe, granting free will to everyone. So we see a man who looks like the great Kung Lao, young Hasashi Hanzo and Bi-Han grappling with each other, Kitana and Milena looking like Shang Tsung appearing in front of someone riding an Outworld palanquin together.
We know how these relationships unfolded before the timeline reboot, but the Mortal Kombat 1 trailer suggests things could have played out differently. Of all the things that could change in this new timeline, many longtime fans wish Kitana and Mileena would have a sister relationship. As you know, Mileena is Kitana’s clone spliced with Tarkatan DNA by Shang Tsung.
There are several posts on the Mortal Kombat Subreddit wishing for a better relationship between the two. They only hate each other because Shao Kahn taught them that way. Hopefully the MK1 has changed that a bit.
“I see a possible anti-heroic path to go when she turns around. [into] Asylum,” in reply to the post above. But as long as she can watch her tear Deborah to shreds, she’s fine too.”
“I’d really like it if she were just Kitana’s right hand. If someone had sex with her sister, she would eat them,” is another answer. That brings us to the next post, which envisions the sister’s relationship as a metaphor, one impetuous and the other calm. I’ll let you guess which one is which.
“My God, I’d love Mileena to be a sweet but uptight sister.” A comment said, as long as we know exactly what we’re thinking. “I’ve always loved the ‘clone but they act like normal brother and sister’ dynamic, so I want this to happen,” said another.
This made many fans enthused at the idea of finally getting to see all four original female ninjas fighting side by side for Edenia. Not only is it a great sight, but classic fans will love it too. “I’m really happy that they’re real sisters now. If Jade and Skarlet make the cut and all four are allies, the Edenian ladies will be unstoppable.
