Yeah, I'm not sure but I'm guessing it was. If you think about it, it's harder to put in a character like Sheeva because she has more unique graphics and sounds. On the other hand, placing Noob Saibot, Rain etc is a lot easier because they are generic of the ninja style. Personally, I was happier that Noob was included :).

not sure about the genesis version, but theres a glitch in the SNES version where u can play as her. It's not that great tho... u have to go to the 8 person tournament thing... where u and ur friend pick 8 characters. Once there, you random select just about everyone... sometimes it'll select a Question mark. That question mark is a glitched up Sheeva. I haven't done it in a looooooooooong time, but it doesn't show any of her graphics, it does have green blood for her, has her noises, and if you enabled 1-button fatals.. SOMETIMES you can do em. It's very glitchy tho.

anyways... why shes not in it? Not sure why actually.. but yeah, probably because of memory problems and because they wanted the select screen to look even.

Sheeva was taken out of the 16-bit versions of UMK3 to free up room for the extra features and characters.

Also, in Mortal Kombat Adance, despite the fact she's absent, all the male fighters have her sound effects when attacking.
I'm sorry, I didn't care.

Yeah, some of her sounds are still in it strangely enough.

Yeah in the SNES UMK3 you do the 8 player vs match, do a full random select and if you get the "E" that will be Sheeva, she is super fast and is made up of like 2 little pieces around her stomach area. Truly a strange glitch but it seems intentional. Here's a pic I got of her and a messed up Jax using an SNES emulator.

When something better than UMK3 comes out, I'll let you all know, because it still hasn't happened yet.

Yeah, cut for memory. She didn't share frames with anyone like the ninjas and she had some unique sound effects, although I think for some of the others they distorted existing sound effects for other characters, but don't go nuts if I am mistaken, its been a while.

Also, she was freaking huge. She'd be the logical one to cut just cause she takes up so much space, lol

And who knows, maybe the programmers didn't want to cut out any characters done by actual actors so they went straight to the puppet. Personally I would have preferred they kept her and cut Motauro, but then I beat the game for storyline once and then only play against people. The MK AI is pretty annoying and stupid.

I found the speed alright, and personally would rather play as her than as Kahn or Motaro (tho they are cool).

Noob is nice, but Rain could've been left out since he does little for the storyline...

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 for the Genesis and Super Nintendo shouldn't have even been made. They both suck ass. Literally...So much was cut out...noises, shao khans taunts, music, Animalities, stages, and more...and do you notice when you perform a BRUTALITY it says Fatality...it's so lame...And the fact that UMK3 came out the same time as MKT is absurd. The games were bad

Uhh... were you playing the SNES version? 'Cause on the Geni, not only did it say Brutality when I performed (sometimes with Dan's "Toasty!"), but Kahn did have his taunts (fun performing them). I think it was a pretty good, since Geni never got (and will never get) MKT.

I have played every version of UMK3...and the Gen version is worse then the SNES version. Of course you can here his taunts...but a lot of them were cut out. And they cut out "Sonya Wins" and whoever else won a fight. They both suck...And aren't worth buying
