After living off the scraps of 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. Details of the story are unknown, but we got some hints from the teaser trailer.
The trailer reveals that Mortal Kombat 1 will reset the timeline, but not a complete reboot. Now in charge of Liu Kang, he has rebuilt the MK Universe, giving free will to all. Then, a figure like Shang Tsun appeared in front of someone who looked like the great Kung Lao, young Hasashi Hanzo and Bee Hung confronted each other, and Kitana and Milena rode together in Outworld’s palanquin. can be seen there.
We know how these relationships played out before the timeline rebooted, but the Mortal Kombat 1 trailer hints that things could go a different way. Among all the things that could change in this new timeline, many longtime fans expected Kitana and Milena to have a sisterhood. As you may know, Mileena is a Kitana clone spliced with her DNA from Tarkatan by Shang Tsun.
The Mortal Kombat Subreddit is full of posts wishing for a better relationship between the two. They hate each other because that’s what Shao Kahn taught them. I hope the MK1 changes that a bit.
“I see the potential for the antihero path that she would take if she turned around.” [into] “Her ending in MK11 suggested that she just wanted to live a simple life and even settle down with Tanya. As long as I can watch her tear Dvora to shreds.”
“I would be really happy if she was Kitana’s right-hand man. If anyone had sex with her sister, she would eat them,” another reply says. Which leads me to the next post. In this post, I imagine the sister relationship as a metaphor where one is hot-tempered and the other is cold-blooded. I’ll leave it to your imagination as to which is which.
“God, I’d love it if Milena could be a caring yet edgy little sister,” one comment knew exactly what we were thinking. “I’ve always liked ‘clones,’ but they act like normal siblings, so I hope this happens,” said another.
This got many fans into the idea that we might finally get to see all four of the original female ninjas fighting on one side for Edenia. Not only is it a spectacular sight, classics fans will love it too. “I’m so happy that they’ve become real sisters. If Jade and Scarlett qualify and all four form an alliance, the women of Edenia will be unstoppable.”
