Didn't you already respond to that post I made beforehand?
Oh crap, I totally forgot. My bad.
Sheeva's NOT a given, though.
It's not that black and white when Sindel and Baraka were also NPC characters in MKX (and more highly requested), and yet nowhere to be found as DLC.
And, again, Bo Rai Cho and Tanya were also requested by folks on Twitter and other social media.
Not as much as Baraka, Fujin, Reiko, Sindel, Noob, Jade and Rain for DLC, but yeah, there sure as hell were requests for them.
Whereas with Sheeva, I haven't found anyone really asking for her to be in.
I don't remember anyone really asking for Bo Rai Cho during the MKX days because I remember how people got pissed that they wasted a DLC spot for him for the second Kombat Pass. I do remember people asking for Reiko, Fujin, Havik and Sindel the most for DLC at the time. Sheeva's coding is in the Switch files and there is so much dailogue coding for it to be fake. I doubt the Switch devoplers added all of the coding to throw people off.
Also speaking of DLC, people found 18 DLC slots (That is also including Shao Khan making it 19 in total).
