Kitana Voice Actress Karen Strassman Returning for Sequel?

In February; the first concrete news of a new Mortal Kombat game project came - surprisingly - via major voice cast addition: Kiefer Sutherland [full story]. With Warner Brothers keeping news on a tight leash, it seems our clearest indication of the game being a sequel has again come from the acting talent involved.

Karen Strassman -- the voice actress behind Kitana & Mileena in the 2011 reboot -- has added "Mortal Kombat 2" to her list of video game voice acting credits [pictured below]. Even more interesting, her involvement seems to have switched from Leading to Supporting role(s). Could this be an indication of the future for two of the series' most iconic ladies?

MKO USER POLL

- She's Mileena (46.8%)
- She's Kitana (5.7%)
- She's Both (32.9%)
- She's Neither (14.4%)
It is at present unknown when the listing was added, or how applicable the "Mortal Kombat 2" title is, or will be. The news should, however, alleviate concerns raised by the rumoured announcement of an Injustice sequel at Wondercon [full story].

As noted, most speculation is directed toward a logical sequel to the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot/remake. However, MK Creative Director Ed Boon introduced the idea of a Mortal Kombat II HD revamp during his appearance on the Giant Bomb Livestream from this year's Game Developer's Conference.

Update (May 21, 2014): Now you see it, now you don't! As pointed out by @patton92, the credit has since been removed from Strassman's resume. We'll let you draw your own conclusions on the forum.

Update (Nov. 20, 2014): Six months out from the 2015 release of Mortal Kombat X, Strassman has responded to a question about reprising her role as Mileena. The answer - deliberately inconclusive: "Maybe......" Watch this space.

Was there anyone in that game that could really be considered a "lead" character, anyway? Other than, y;know, herp a derp Raiden

RE: Kitana Voice Actress Karen Strassman Returning for Sequel

Frankly I'm going to put my hat out for Mileena as the first likely choice. As for Kitana it's still ambiguous. I guess we might see a few cameos, but other than that not so much. Plus the new game's spotlight is going to be on other new female kombatants which deserve some good attention. I'm curious how they'll remake Sareena and Tanya (they'll appear beyond a doubt)...

Just because she's listed as supporting doesn't mean she won't be playable. Look at Sheeva, she had what? 5 lines of dialogue and was still playable. Skarlet didn't even talk and was still playable.

Plus if NRS wanted to be cheap, they could just reuse her grunts and stuff from MK9. Not only is it entirely possible she's playable, it's more than likely she is.

YUSH! FINALLY some concrete Mortal Kombat news!
Hopefully the next MK game will be officially announced soon so this place can live up again and rise from the hellhole it's currently resting in...

MICK! Make a new section for the next MK and let the threads start flowing in!

That's some cool news. Granted, I didn't like how Kitana and Mileena were portrayed in MK 2011, but I will give Karen Strassman credit for making the best out of what she was given. After all, she has done voice work for many different projects. I'm not particularly too surprised to see that she'll play a supporting role this time since the story of the next MK is likely going to focus on Shinnok and Quan Chi anyway.

Not necessarily. She may be playable, just not a major role (which could be considered a leading role) in the story.

A lot of people seem to be thinking this is the 2011 sequel. Does anyone think it would be the MK2 Director's Cut?

But with the end of the last Mortal Kombat, Shao Khan should be gone for good. Making Kitana ruler of Edenia. Mk4 dealt more with Netherealm's attempt to take over earthrealm, so I could see where she might be playing a more minor role in MK2.

RE: Kitana Voice Actress Karen Strassman Returning for Sequel

Has anyone you know...Maybe asked her if MK 2 is actually a sequel to MK 2011? That would kind of rule out an MK 2 remake, or it would confirm it.

RE: Kitana Voice Actress Karen Strassman Returning for Sequel


So it's safe to assume Kitana just got confirmed? She'll be there in some way shape or form.

I liked Kitana's voice actress, she sounded like a stuck up teenage girl.

I'm sure somebody has already had this idea, but wouldn't it be better if NRS just remade the games? After Armageddon the 2011 should have been the same, but without the retcons, especially Kitana and Mileena's.

It would be better, but it's kind of a moot point now. The remake has happened. It's a shame about the retcons, but it's not like they can follow up a reboot with a reboot.

I mean, look at it through the eyes of the casual fan. It would be like following DMC up with another Devil May Cry Reboot. And honestly, MK9 was at least satisfying from visual standpoint (with exceptions). I liked most of the new designs, and I'm kinda ready to start playing competitively with Fujin and Shinnok.

EDIT: and I'm pretty sure Kitana is a go. I would bet at least 60% of MK2011 cast is coming back.

This also can confirm Mileena too right? At least one of them is in.

Yes it confirms Mileena. I guarantee they are both playable. They're fan favorites, so they're not going anywhere.

Many iconic MK characters were absent in Deception, and the game still became one the best selling titles of the franchise.

I'm still hoping this happens for MK10. Let the dead folks stay dead, or at least unlockable.

Deception also wasn't competitively competent. Now that MK is EVO worthy, I doubt they would change the roster too much.

RE: Kitana Voice Actress Karen Strassman Returning for Sequel

I don't remember any VA really present in MK II, nor would it really make sense in an HD Remake, besides grunts and screams.

I don't see them adding cut scenes to an MK II HD Remake, either. So, I'm assuming this is indeed Mortal Kombat: Chapter 2
