No online for FIFA 12 3DS

The online head-to-head mode featured in the upcoming 3DS version of FIFA 12 has sadly been dropped, despite being promised in the game’s press release sent out just last week.

Producer Matt Prior told Nintendo World Report that: “Currently, we only have local head-to-head play, but server-based online is certainly something we would be looking at in the future.”

Looks like we’ll have to stick to local games for now. FIFA 12 will be out later in the year.
