FIFA games have been appearing on Nintendo’s portable systems for over a decade. However, with FIFA 16, the streak is coming to a close.

EA confirmed to Pocket Gamer that the latest entry won’t be on the 3DS (or PS Vita for that matter). FIFA 12 up through FIFA 15 all launched on the handheld.

EA didn’t say why it decided to stop supporting the 3DS when it comes to the FIFA franchise, but the company is likely opting to focus on the mobile release instead.

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is launching in North America on August 4, Atlus has announced. Like all of the company’s games, this one will be sold both in stores and on the eShop.

For those who haven’t heard about Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight previously, here’s a handy overview:

The first-person dungeon crawler from the classic Etrian franchise is updated with an all-new standalone story, complete with voiced characters who must adventure through the mysterious forest labyrinth and the ruins of Ginnungagap, where they may uncover the secret origins of the Fafnir Knight and his power to transform and use demonic powers.

The story mode is only half of the game, as Classic mode will allow players to play in the traditional Etrian fashion – by putting a party together from 13 unique classes and then clawing through dungeons to prove your mettle. Introduced in the first Untold game, both Classic and Story modes allow players to choose their own difficulty, from Picnic to Expert.

The choice of whether to start with Story or Classic mode will be up to you, when Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight launches on August 4!

Along with today’s release date announcement, Atlus released a new cooking video for Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight. You can watch it below.

Nintendo teamed up with Koei Tecmo for Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3’s Japanese release last year. By playing an eShop demo, players could access costumes based on Link and Zelda from Hyrule Warriors.

Unfortunately, Koei Tecmo won’t be offering these items in next month’s western version. The company told Siliconera that “those costumes are Japan-exclusive”.
