NetherRealm Studios have released the next in their line of official character gameplay montages, this time featuring the malicious moves of man-eater, Mileena!

To download the videos yourself, you can use these links:

Mileena's trademark sai weapons play a prominent role as a classic projectile, along with other favourite moves from previous appearances, her telerport kick, rolling thunder, and a smoothly integrated leaping bite, among the highlights. The video shows off the improved fluidity of Mortal Kombat's new fighting engine, boasting seamless tag team assists, as well as bone crushing X-Ray specials!

Also included: dialogue between Mileena and an unseen character, whose voice was previously attributed to MK3 alumnist, Stryker, in a series of leaked audio files. It remains unclear if this is part of a seemingly interactive pre-fight intro sequence, or a brief snippet of the games confirmed story mode, which will operate similarly to the mode seen in 2008's Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe.

More intriguing, perhaps, is the appearance of a new background character. Over the course of previews, Shao Kahn's Coliseum has played host to a small handful of chained women in reference to the Mortal Kombat II appearance of Sonya and Kano.

Were you listening to me, or were you looking at the woman in red?

This new character, an unindentified woman in red, may yet have ties to a teaser image posted to Twitter by Ed Boon in September, last year. Revealed as belonging to an unrevealed character in part of an incentive campaign to earn votes in a Gamespot competition [full story], the leg has been speculated to belong to Sareena, Sindel, or a long rumored fake character known as Skarlett.

If the very deliberate manner with which the trailer focuses action around the woman in red's section of the arena didn't convince you, then perhaps a playful message from the official Mortal Kombat Twitter feed will help:

A lot of tactical legwork went into today's Mileena trailer, too bad didn't reveal any characters. #OrDidWe

The gameplay video is currently exclusive to Eurogamer, and can be viewed at full size on their website. The video comes as response to massive support shown for Mileena on the official Mortal Kombat website. You can help unlock more materials by joining the official message boards. For more Mileena, be sure to check out the barrage of materials released in January, including; fully rendered artwork, an animated backstory vignette, and design renders of both Mileena, and Kitana. Also available on iTunes and Amazon, the first track from Mortal Kombat: Songs inspired by the Warriors!

Mortal Kombat is expected to be released in April for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, available in standard and special editions. Information about international versions of kollectors extras is expected to be made known soon. Stay tuned to Mortal Kombat Online for updates.
