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?

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.
