Original Project X Zone removed from the 3DS eShop

Update 2: While the re-download button doesn’t display in the individual listing, you can currently grab the software again by visiting your list of “Redownloadable Software” on 3DS eShop (thanks Kaleo).
Update: The game is also unavailable in Europe (thanks lightdasher and Grimahim.
The first Project X Zone has disappeared from the North American 3DS eShop. On top of that, if you’ve downloaded it previously, a message stating “This software is currently unavailable” is displayed where the re-download button would be.
We’re not quite sure why Bandai Namco decided to remove Project X Zone from the eShop. Anyone in Europe know if this is the same situation there as well?
Thanks to Brian for the tip.

Mastery and Second Name
A job has certain requirements which, if fulfilled, will make them master the job. When this is reached, the player can choose from one of two Second Names to give the character a set of Mastery Skills that change based on the Second Name picked.

– Sharp Thrust: Lightly attacks an enemy to draw attention towards oneself while increasing evasion for a turn
Lightning Swift Swordsman (specialize in combo)
– Resonance: Close-range thrusting attack to an enemy; the damage increases based on amount of attacks activated from Chain skills and others last turn
– Chain Killer: On the turn this skill is used, if the target enemy is being inflicted by status ailments or seals from ally skills, the user will perform another thrusting attack
About the blacksmith
In the great city of Aeolis, players can sell materials obtained in dungeons to unlock more equipment and items. It’s also possible to use the materials for upgrading weapons.
Also as a small tidbit, in the mini manga, it’s shown that in character creation, coloring can be freely adjusted. This ranges from hair and hair shades, to eye and eye shades (can also color eyes separately), to skin color as well.
Here are some screenshots from Famitsu showing a bit of the Etrian Odyssey V coverage:

This week’s Famitsu has an four page feature on Zero Time Dilemma. The magazine recaps some previously-known information while also sharing extra tidbits.
Zero Time Dilemma is labeled as a “Dicision Game” (that is indeed the actual spelling). Each of the three teams are placed somewhere inside the underground nuclear shelter. Everyone is equipped with a timer bracelet on their left wrist, and the teams are given 90 minutes to find a way to escape the shelter. However, once the 90 minutes are up, the bracelet will administer drugs that cause them to fall asleep and lose all memories of what happened during that time.
