Is there a playable Mileena Mortal Kombat 11 character? Since the debut of the Mortal Kombat 11 Friendship mechanic, players have actually seen that Mileena features in the friendship animation for Kitana. This was an especially surprising look as she’s not yet in the game as a playable character, so that brings up one big question: Will Mileena be playable in the game?
Can you play as Mileena in Mortal Kombat 11?
The most immediate concern that comes to mind is whether you can play as Mileena in Mortal Kombat 11. She’s been one of the game’s many characters for a number of steps in the franchise now, and yet she oddly didn’t feature in Mortal Kombat 11.
Sadly, her addition in Kitana’s Friendship animation is simply that: a special appearance by a beloved, longstanding character in the franchise. While it certainly made for an unexpected moment in the friendship trailer, players can’t use her in the game just yet.
“Yes, Mileena is in Kitana’s Friendship,” mentioned on a tweet on the official Mortal Kombat Twitter account.“No, Mileena is not playable.”

Does the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal mean she’s coming to the game?
The absence of a playable Mileena character is definitely frustrating to some, however, that does not always suggest that she won’t be making her way to the game.
Think about the fact that they have what looks like a quite premium model in the game for use in Kitana’s animation. That’s a big chunk of the work already done right there, however, that’s not all. Aside from the model, they would need to do:
- Voice acting
- Special moves and the associated animations
- Finishers, friendship, etc.
- Additional animations( X-rays, scenes, etc. )
So no, there is not a playable Mileena in Mortal Kombat 11 just.
