Megan Thee Stallion dressed as Mileena for a Mortal Kombat ad

Most of the hype for the next Mortal Kombat 11 (opens in new tab) DLC pack has focused on the addition of Rambo (opens in new tab) to the fighting game's expansive and ridiculous roster. But the Kombat Pack 2 will also bring back two classic characters: Rain and the ever-popular Mileena, who fans have been vocally demanding the return of.

After three trailers featuring Sylvester Stallone as Rambo (opens in new tab), we'll soon get to see some gameplay footage of Mileena, a fact we know thanks to an unlikely source: An ad in which WAP (opens in new tab) singer and noted celebrity weeb Megan Thee Stallion (opens in new tab) dresses as the sai-wielding cannibalistic assassin. That prosthetic mouth is an impressive piece of work, by which I mean it's as grotesque as it's ever been in the games. "Gameplay bout to drop real soon", says the Instagram post (opens in new tab), but the real question is, will we get a Megan Thee Stallion skin for Mileena? This is a game that already has the Joker (opens in new tab), Spawn (opens in new tab), Robocop and the Terminator (opens in new tab) in it, so why not?

The Kombat Pack 2 DLC is due on November 17, as is Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Edition, which will contain all 37 characters and the Aftermath expansion.
